Australian commercial marine businesses set to showcase their innovation and expertise at APM 2020

The 16th edition of Asia Pacific Maritime (APM) titled ‘Your Future Starts Here’ will be held at Marina Bay Sands, located in down town Singapore from March 18-20, 2020 with the Australian Pavilion once again being a strong contributor to the exhibition.

The Australian Pavilion at APM has continued to provide Australian commercial businesses the opportunity to showcase their premium products to international key stakeholders with the primary interest coming from their neighbours in Asia. Australian contingents have always left a valuable impression promoting their high quality and innovative products and services garnering interest from the first days of the exhibition.

Regarded by the industry as the region’s premier maritime event, APM combines a comprehensive exhibition, high-powered conferences and seminars, and a host of networking sessions that connect quality Asia Pacific buyers to international maritime suppliers. With 14,158 trade visitors along with 1,432 brands from 60 countries, APM 2018 was represented by over 644 booths, exhibiting their innovations for the industry.
