Regarded by many as the only gateway to the Asian maritime market, Marintec China 2013 has opened with due ceremony in Shanghai.

With a significant increase in the floor area from 2011, this year's Marintec China covers more than 70,000 square metres. Taking up six exhibition halls, (Hall N1, N2, N3, W3, W4, W5) of the Shanghai New International Expo Centre (SNIEC), this year looks like being another record breaker.

Sixteen national / regional pavilions from Austria, mainland China, Denmark, Finland, France, Germany, Hong Kong SAR, Japan, Korea, the Netherlands, Norway, Singapore, Sweden, Taiwan region, the United States and the United Kingdom are also staging in Marintec China with a wide variety of maritime products and technologies.

In addition, the Senior Maritime Forum is being held from 2-5 December at the Kerry Hotel, Pudong, Shanghai.  The overall theme is "Green Technology, Transformation, Breakthrough" with sessions dedicated to "Shipbuilding," "Shipping and Ports," "China Summit on International Ocean Engineering Equipment" and "Marine Finance," as well as keynote speeches in the morning sessions.
 
Marintec China is sponsored by the Ministry of Industry and Information Technology, PRC; the Ministry of Transport, PRC; and the Shanghai Municipal People's Government; and co-sponsored by the China State Shipbuilding Corporation; the China Shipbuilding Industry Corporation; the China Association of National Shipbuilding Industry; and the Chinese Society of Naval Architects & Marine Engineers; organised and managed by UBM and the Shanghai Society of Naval Architects & Ocean Engineers (SSNAOE).
