Maritime world meets at Europort Istanbul

The 11th Exposhipping Europort Istanbul International Maritime Exhibition (Europort Istanbul) will bring together the international maritime sector in the Istanbul Expo Centre between 23 and 26 March.

Since 2002 Turkey has risen from the 23rd to 5th place in the shipbuilding industry worldwide, and to 7th place in mega yacht building. The number of shipyards has increased from 40 to 107. This number will rise to 175 with completion of ongoing investments.

In the maritime world, Istanbul occupies a central position. It is the centre of the Turkish shipbuilding industry and the link between Europe, the Balkans, the Middle East, the Black Sea region and North Africa.

The 10th edition of this trade fair created a positive business environment, with 217 exhibitors representing 610 brands from 34 countries and 7,869 high quality visitors from 48 countries participating. Most of the international visitors came from the EU region with the Netherlands, the United Kingdom, Spain, Germany and Greece in the Top 5, but there were also visitors from Bulgaria, France, Japan, Belgium, Italy and Scandinavian countries.

The event was accompanied by a high quality conference and workshop programme, covering many of the genuine issues in the Turkish maritime industry. The 2011 edition of Europort Istanbul is set to again provide it with a complete platform.
