Ship Repair & Conversion '93

Following the success of last year's ship maintenance conference exhibit, Ship Repair & Conversion '93 returns to Olympia 2 London, England, November 9-10, 1993.

Ship Repair & Conversion '93 is the major international meeting dedicated to the shiprepair, conversion and maintenance industry.

More than 79 shiprepair yards are expected to attend this year's conference. The main message from previous conferences was that the industry has yet to experience the resulting increase in trade as governments and international regulatory bodies strive to make the world's fleets safer and better maintained. This will inevitably add to the core business the shiprepair industry presently receives from an ever-aging global merchant fleet. For more information, contact: John Gwynn- Jones, Director, BML Business Meetings Limited, 2 Station Road, Rickmansworth, Herts WD3 1QP, England, tel: +44 923 776363; fax: +44 923 777206.

For the first time ever, there will be a major U.S. presence at the Ship Repair & Conversion '93 show. A pavilion will be organized in conjunction with the Shipbuilders Council of America, and a number of U.S. shipyards will be represented, including (note: list current at press time): Atlantic Marine, Inc.
