|Thursday, 15 November 2012 13:59|
Over recent years Singapore has become, arguably, the Centre of the Work Boat Universe.
That is why Baird Events locates its ASIAN WORK BOAT Exhibition and Conferences there every two years. The next event will be held in the world renowned Marina Bay Sands casino resort centre from February 26 - 28, 2013.
Always a concentrated gathering of high quality, serious work boat owners and operators from around the region and around the world, ASIAN WORK BOAT 2013 promises to be no different. The organisers are expecting the usual approximately 3,000 attendees of whom about 1,000 will come from outside Singapore.
The primary focus of the event is on the requirements of owners and operators of tugs, OSVs, ferries, patrol boats, pilot boats, rescue boats, construction vessels, fishing and aquaculture support boats, dredgers, tourist boats and much more.
As always, ASIAN WORK BOAT 2013 will present the latest in vessel design, materials, ship building, equipment and services from around the world. The exhibition will be supported by at least three conferences. They will focus on:-
• Training and Certification of Work Boat Crews.
• Improving Ferry Safety and Economics in S.E. Asia
• Singapore as an LNG Bunkering Hub for Work Boats.
