Navarino was in attendance at this year’s Asia Pacific Maritime conference. The APM 2014, which took place 19 to 21 March 2014, received a total of 14,239 visitors from over 64 countries, an 11 per cent growth from its last edition in 2012. Beyond the exhibition floor, APM delegates also heard first-hand insights on key growth areas in the Asia-Pacific region, Asia’s impact on container shipping and dry bulk demand, as well as viable solutions to improve efficiency, cut cost and make a green impact in the face of tightening environmental and energy policies imposed on the maritime industry.
Ms Michelle Lim, Managing Director, of the exhibitions said: “This has been the biggest APM to date in all aspects. We have received very positive feedback from the floor, including strong re-bookings for the next edition of the show by exhibitors. These positive indicators mirror the industry’s careful but optimistic outlook.” The Navarino stand was staffed by our Singapore office staff, including Ms Phoebe Wang and she was joined by our Hong Kong representative Mr Spyros Georgiou. Both were on hand to show customers the latest features of Infinity and to meet the growing number of local shipping companies we count among our customers in the Far East. Mr Georgiou said ‘A very successful event in all respects. We really enjoy these kinds of opportunities to meet new companies and also to see our existing customers. It is a very good chance for us to catch up on the latest developments within shipping and also allows us to demonstrate some of the newest services available from Navarino.
