Closing Report: INMEX SMM India 2019 proofs its status as South Asia’s leading maritime tradeshow

  • More than 5.000 high quality trade visitors
  • Over 260 satisfied exhibitors from 20 nations
  • Next episode from 11.-13. Okt 2021 
The 11th edition of South Asia’s leading maritime trade show, INMEX SMM India, has been a huge success for both visitors and exhibitors. More than 5.000 top level trade visitors joined the show at the Bombay Exhibition Centre in Mumbai, from 3 to 5 October 2019. Over 260 exhibitors from 20 nations presented the latest trends and innovative products in the maritime industry. After three fully packed days the exhibitors showed themselves very satisfied with the high quality of visitors at their booths. The trade fair was flanked by a high quality conference programme on the current topics of the maritime industry such as solutions for a more sustainable shipping. This was particularly discussed at the second and successful edition of the CIMAC Circle India. Several networking events gave decision makers room for business talks and new contacts. In the end INMEX SMM India 2019 served once again as the ideal springboard for maritime suppliers that want to enter the South Asian market or are willing to exceed their existing business relations in the region.
The joint venture of Hamburg Messe und Congress GmbH and Informa Markets was launched in 2015 and happens every two odd years. The next episode will take place from 11 to 13 October 2021 at the Bombay Exhibition Centre in Mumbai.

Hamburg Representation Mumbai looks back on a positive fair
INMEX SMM India enjoyed a particularly positive response in 2019, which is reflected in the increasing number of visitors. The fair was characterized by the quality of the premises, the wide range of exhibitors from all over the world, as well as the professional high-quality events, conferences and well-organized networking events. This has certainly made a great contribution to the satisfaction of visitors, exhibitors and organisers.
Peter Deubet, Chief Representative of the Hamburg Representation Mumbai and Lea Miram, Hamburg Business Manager, conclude: „We were delighted to take this opportunity to raise awareness of Hamburg as a maritime location. By actively participating in the Sales Lounge and the various evening receptions, we were able to promote the efficiency of the Port of Hamburg as well as further highlights such as SMM or WindEnergy in 2020.“
The positive impressions of the past few days are certainly a good pulse generator for intensifying the Indian presence at upcoming events in Hamburg next year.
„We are taking part in SMM Inmex for the third time. The quality of the event and the visitors has increased steadily. This trade fair is our main starting point for the Indian subcontinent and the Arab states,“ underlines Paul Holstein, CEO of Techno Trade GmbH.
