MCN at SMM 2018

More than 2,200 exhibitors from 66 countries took part in last year’s SMM fair in Hamburg. This year, the leading international trade fair for the maritime industry is returning to Hamburg. Some 50,000 visitors are expected. The Maritime Cluster Northern Germany (MCN) is represented at the SMM 2018 fair with two booths. Discover what we have planned and how to find us.

MCN is an exhibitor at the SMM fair. You can find us at the InWaterTec joint booth in hall B6, booth 148. Exciting exhibits from our maritime start-ups Ankron Water Services, Humatects and NautilusLog await you there. We look forward to your visit!

Cooperation partner of the Maritime 3D Printing Show Area @ SMM

For the first time ever, there will be a special 3D printing show at the SMM fair, planned by Hamburg Messe und Congress GmbH in cooperation with MCN. In addition to various exhibitors from the area of additive manufacturing, exciting lectures and live demonstrations await you there. Learn more about the creation process of a 3D component: from engineering, including software use and CAD drawing creation, to the actual printing and finishing processes and checking the component for approval regulations and suitability. A selection of experts from the 3D printing sector will be on hand to answer your questions throughout the entire trade fair. In addition to the MCN, the MCN members Mecklenburger Metallguss, Rolf Lenk Werkzeug- und Maschinenbau and Treo – The Laboratory for Environmental Simulation will also be present in the 3D Printing Show Area. Visit us in hall B6, booth 224. Discover more

The guests will learn more about the cross-state projects of the maritime industry and get to know innovations of maritime start-ups at the MCN booth. Afterwards, the ministers and senators will be available for press photos before they go on individual tours of the SMM fair.

MariMatch supporter

Trade fairs are a good opportunity to find out about innovations and trends, but also to make new contacts and meet future business partners. So how do you find out who would be a good match? The Enterprise Europe Network (EEN), MCN and other cooperation partners are sending out an invitation to participate in the international B2B contact exchange MariMatch. Meet future business and research partners in prepared meetings directly on the fair grounds, but away from the hustle and bustle of the trade fair itself. The goal of MariMatch is to support you in establishing international contacts. Afterwards, the tours “Maritime Innovations from Northern Germany” organised by the EEN and the MCN will take you on a journey of discovery. You can expect selected, exciting companies. Further information and registration

6-7 September 2018 | Hall B4, upper floor, directly in the staircase of the east entrance lobby | Registration by 31 August 2018
