Some 2000 exhibitors and more than 50,000 trade visitors are expected to attend the 24th shipbuilding, machinery & marine technology, international trade fair hamburg (SMM 2010), from 7 to 10 September 2010.

This event will attract exhibitors from 50 nations, including the major yards from the leading shipbuilding nations, representatives of the marine equipment industry, and a whole range of small and medium-sized companies.

More than 100 new exhibitors from all product areas have been accepted for SMM 2010. In the shipyard sector, for example, the Indian company Pipavav Shipyard Ltd. chose SMM 2010 for its first presentation on the international scene. It is India's largest shipyard, building freighters, offshore vessels and naval ships. Pipavav is a private-sector shipyard with ambitious plans – it aims to be among the world's Top Ten shipbuilding companies by 2015. In the engines sector, a new exhibitor is John Deere Power Systems from France. In the offshore sector, Zamil Offshore Services from Saudi Arabia will be working to make new international business contacts at SMM 2010.

SMM 2010 will be backed by a supporting programme, with some 150 workshops, symposia and conferences, covering all the key issues for the shipbuilding sector at the present time. Such as the Ship Finance Forum, which traditionally brings together bankers, ship owners and managers of the shipyard and marine equipment industries the day before SMM, that is on 6 September 2010.

The first Global Maritime Environmental Congress (GMEC) will be held on 7 and 8 September. It brings the leading decision makers of the maritime industry together with representatives from government, academia and civil society, to discuss achievements so far and to set new courses for the maritime future in environmental protection.

A workshop on offshore issues will be conducted on 8 and 9 September. The CIMAC Circle, that is the meeting of the International Council on Combustion Engines, will be held on 9 September, when it will focus on costs.

SMM 2010 and GMEC will be officially opened at CCH – Congress Center Hamburg on 6 September 2010, the evening before the start of the trade fair.
