China Maritime 2012
Tuesday, February 28 - Thursday, March 1, 2012
HONG KONG CONVENTION AND EXHIBITION CENTRE
Following its previous highly successful stagings in 2006, 2008 and 2010, China Maritime returns to Hong Kong for a fourth time from Tuesday, February 28 â€“ Thursday, March 1, 2012.
Hong Kong is one of the worldâ€™s leading maritime centres. It has an enormous port â€“ Asiaâ€™s number one cargo and container hub. It lies at the epicentre of the busiest maritime region in the world. There is, in the surrounding region, intense activity in ship-owning, ship-building, ship-repair, naval architecture, port operations, tugs, ferries, commercial fishing, naval, police, coast guard, tourism, work boats, pollution control and much more.
Many internationally renowned ship owners operate their ships from Hong Kong, which currently controls or manages about ten percent of the worldâ€™s total tonnage. Plus, many Chinese and Japanese ship owners are moving their headquarters to Hong Kong because they enjoy a more favourable corporate environment there.
China Maritime 2012 will again bring together the cream of the international maritime industry to create an efficient, effective and truly international marine market place. This event will provide the perfect opportunity to meet new suppliers and customers and to renew old acquaintances. The Hong Kong location provides an effective and enjoyable bridge between East and West.
China Maritime 2012 features an extensive exhibition with product presentation seminars, two significant maritime forums, and a series of social events facilitating unrivalled networking possibilities at a time of unprecedented opportunity.
