The SMM in Hamburg is the world-leading fair of the maritime economy. It takes place every two years in Hamburg, because due to the long maritime tradition as a dynamic commercial center Hamburg offers the ideal location for the SMM. It is the trade fair for shipbuilding, machinery and marine technology with the largest international character. Visitors and exhibitors from all over the world represent the current state of the maritime industry worldwide and can here present their latest technologies or receive information about the latest products, innovations, trends and services. No other show has such a wide range of international exhibitors and visitors and so determines the success of the industry. However, the SMM is more than just a trade show. With a comprehensive program consisting of conferences, symposia and workshops held by internationally recognized speakers on important global issues, it forms the perfect setting for the entire maritime industry.
On the whole the organisers welcomed on the 4 days of the fair, from 09. September to 12. September 2014, about 2141 exhibitors from 67 countries and 50000 visitors on the SMM in Hamburg.
The SMM will take place on 4 days from Tuesday, 04. September to Friday, 07. September 2018 in Hamburg.
