About the Event

Co-organised by the Singapore Maritime Foundation (SMF) and Seatrade, the premier maritime and offshore conference and exhibition, Sea Asia, returned for its 6th edition next year, from 25 to 27 April 2017 at the Marina Bay Sands®, Singapore. On 19 April 2016, over 250 senior maritime professionals attended the Sea Asia 2017 Launch Reception organised at the Marina Bay Sands® Singapore during the 2016 Singapore Maritime Week (SMW). Chairman of SMF Mr Andreas Sohmen-Pao and Chairman of Seatrade Mr Chris Hayman, gave the opening speeches to officially kick-off the biennial conference and exhibition, and provided a preview into what can be expected from the next Sea Asia show.

Sea Asia was well-attended by trade professionals and some of the most influential and respected leaders in the industry, which delivered an unparalleled reach of key decision-makers. As the anchor event held biennially in conjunction with the SMW, Sea Asia enjoys strong support from government agencies and key trade associations, firmly establishing itself in the marketplace as the leading platform for both the global and local maritime and offshore communities to explore business, network and unveil new products and services.
