The Society of Naval Architects and Marine
Engineers (SNAME) and The Maritime Group – publishers of Maritime
Reporter & Engineering News, MarineNews, and the Maritime Security
Sourcebook – announced a new partnership to help increase attendance
and exhibitors at the IMExpo, held in conjunction with SNAME’s Annual
This year’s IMExpo – dubbed the World Maritime Technology Conference and
Exposition – is scheduled for October 18-20, 2003, at the Moscone
Center, San Francisco, Calif.
The Maritime Group enjoys the world’s largest circulation
industry publications, and serves SNAME’s target market – maritime and
offshore industries and their suppliers. The Maritime Group will now be
responsible for selling booth space for the IMExpo, while SNAME retains
all control once the booths are sold. SNAME will still administrate the
show, handle the Accounting, and plan all of the details.
An estimated 1,000 delegates from 10 countries will converge on San
Francisco and, at a single conference, discuss both technical and
business topics affecting the maritime industry. The World Maritime
Technology Conference will provide a forum for discussion and exchange
on issues related to the future of the global maritime industry. The
technical program promises to deliver informative technical sessions,
interactive panel discussions, topical debate and an exposition by
leaders in the maritime industry.
Many major maritime policy changes on the national and international
levels have recently been enacted or proposed, making the World Maritime
Technology Conference and Exposition perfectly timed to stay ahead of
critical technical and business issues affecting the industry.
Mr. Rob Howard, with Maritime Reporter, will be heading up the Booth
Sales efforts. Please contact him at Tel.: 561-732-4368; Fax:
