Tokyo Big Sight Exhibition Center, Tokyo, Japan
Sea Japan is the only exhibition that serves the shipbuilding, ship owning and related maritime industries in Japan. It is a significant biennial event in the industry calendar and the optimum opportunity for buyers and seller to meet, network and do business together. If you are interested in the reliable potential of the Japanese maritime market make sure you attend Sea Japan. We look forward to seeing you in Tokyo.
The global financial crisis has had a significant impact on the shipbuilding and shipping markets around the world since the previous Sea Japan was held in 2008. Freight rates have dropped, hundreds of new-building orders have been cancelled or postponed and large numbers of vessels have been laid up. Incredibly, despite all the economic upheaval of the past two years, the size of this year's Sea Japan exhibition has once again increased and the exhibit area has been expanded to accommodate the demand from companies wishing to sell into Japan. More than anything else this clearly illustrates that Japan represents an attractive market for international suppliers of marine equipment and maritime services. Japan is seen as being resilient and robust, even amid the current adverse economic and industry climate.
