Anchor Your Presence at Sea Asia 2019

Widely recognised as Asia's anchor maritime and offshore event, Sea Asia 2019 will return to Singapore for the 7th edition, from 9 to 11 April 2019 at the Marina Bay Sands®.

Co-organised by UBM (Seatrade) and the Singapore Maritime Foundation, Sea Asia is the anchor maritime event held in conjunction with the Singapore Maritime Week. Over the years, it has established strong working relationships and support from the Maritime and Port Authority of Singapore and key industry associations. Sea Asia is recognised globally as the leading platform for the maritime industry to interact, explore business opportunities, hear the latest insights and find new products and services.

The highly acclaimed Sea Asia conference takes place alongside the exhibition over three days. The conference features an extensive gathering of industry heavyweights and high-profile international speakers sharing thought leadership and addressing critical issues and potential solutions from a commercial perspective. In addition, the well curated conference programme and the high level delegate participation further reinforced Sea Asia's role as a leading forum for analysis and debate in the global maritime industry.

The last edition of Sea Asia featured five new pavilions from Denmark, Greece, Japan, Korea, and the United Kingdom in addition to those from Singapore, China, Holland, Norway and Panama, with a participation of close to 15,000 international participants and 448 exhibitors occupying 8,428sqm net exhibition space.
