Marintec China 2003 will feature a new procurement session for those who wish to have a deeper understanding of the Chinese buyers' perspective towards maritime related products and services. Purchasing chiefs from major Chinese maritime companies will speak to share with exhibitors from both inside and outside of China, the standards, the requirements and qualities of maritime products or services these companies are seeking, and ways suppliers can adapt their marketing initiatives and products to better suit the Chinese market. This entails necessary documentation and various procedures that may be required leading to successful sales follow-ups.
An interactive session will also feature direct dialogue with the invited key buyers. This event will be a rare and invaluable opportunity for all maritime companies to enhance seamless communication and to stay competitive in the China's fast growing maritime industry. The procurement session is an extension of the high-profile Senior Maritime Forum which will be held during the event, from 1st to 4th December, 2003. The Forum has been seen as one of the most important value-added services provided by the exhibition organisers CMP/Seatrade and Shanghai Society of Naval Architects & Marine Engineers (SSNAME) to provide vital market information to exhibitors.
Held in Shanghai biennially, Marintec China is the most established maritime exhibition in China. The coming edition will be held from 2-5 December, 2003 at the Shanghai New International Expo Centre. Marintec China has the full support and endorsement of China's senior government, major trade associations and leading organisations in both domestic and foreign maritime circles.
