Significant increase in size of Singapore pavilion at Asia Pacific Maritime 2006News // October 17, 2005
The Singapore Pavilion, led by the Association of Singapore Marine Industries (ASMI), at Asia Pacific Maritime 2006 (APM) shows a remarkable jump in pavilion size as compared to the last showing in 2004.
With six months to the show, the Singapore Pavilion size at APM2006 has already surpassed that of the last event by 40 per cent, with more industry players confirming their participation at an encouraging rate.
The Singapore pavilion will also be the largest national contingent at APM 2006.
APM features a strong following of national pavilions including China, Germany, Japan, Korea, Norway, Singapore and the UK. APM will also welcome Taiwan and Malaysia as the new additions to the country contingents.
“We are pleased to see stronger member participation at APM 2006 since the industry is experiencing positive market conditions,” said ASMI President Mr Michael Chia.
Encouragingly, 70 per cent of the last event’s Singapore participants have already confirmed their return to APM 2006, with more leading industry players joining the pavilion.
The Singapore Pavilion boasts the presence of major local shipyards that will serve to boost the shipbuilding, ship repair and conversion component of the APM exhibition.
This, the organisers believe, will serve in turn to draw more regional ship owners and ship managers to the event.
Some of the industry players confirmed include ACeS, ASL Shipyard, Codar, Griffin, Industmarine Engineers, Jason Electronics, Keppel FELS, LH & MH, Modern Automation & Engineering, Nitti, Power Instruments, Rico, Saab Marine Rosemount, SembCorp Marine, Shipnet, Teho Ropes and Viking.
