Attention on Doha for Ship & Port 2007

The second edition of Ship & Port, an international ship building, port and marine technology exhibition for the Middle East and Asia, will be held in Doha in March this year.

The second edition of Ship & Port, an international ship building, port and marine technology exhibition for the Middle East and Asia, will be held in Doha in March this year.

The three-day maritime industry event, which will feature some of the biggest names of the global maritime sector, is scheduled to take place from March 18th – 20th at the Qatar International Exhibition Centre in the country’s capital city.

“The event will offer an excellent opportunity to foster the growth of shipping and logistics industry of the country, where major multi-billion dollar maritime projects are already under way,” said show organiser Satish Khanna, general manager, Al Fajer Information & Services.

It is for the first time that Qatar will host a maritime industry event of the magnitude of Ship & Port.

“Qatar is now a major player in the global maritime industry, not just of the region. The country is set to become the world’s largest liquefied natural gas producer. Ras Laffan Industrial City, situated on the north-east coast of the country, has grown to be a thriving energy related industrial base in a very short time. The energy produced here will have to be transported in specially strengthened ships to users spread across the globe. This demand has lead to global maritime industry players flocking to Qatar. We believe Ship & Port Qatar will provide the right impetus to the development of the country’s maritime and logistics industry,” said Khanna.

“Ship & Port Qatar will feature the region’s leading port authorities and industry stake holders, and will provide an excellent platform to showcase the latest in technology, products and services, as well as offer unrivalled networking opportunities for the professionals in the industry. The event will help trade and technology seekers to network with the entire spectrum of the maritime industries suppliers from all over the world,” added Khanna.

Leading officials from the region’s marine fishing industry, shipyards, harbours and port authorities, shipping and trading firms are also expected to attend.

Exhibitors from the Middle East include IRSHAD (UAE), Marine Services Co (Qatar), Micad Marine (USA), Pacific Technology (UAE), Qatar Navigation (Qatar), Qatar Port Authority (Qatar), Radio Holland Middle East (UAE), and Wartsila Gulf (UAE).
