Iran to Make Debut at German Maritime Trade Fair

For the first time Iran will have a national pavilion at SMM Hamburg, the leading international maritime trade fair, according to its website.
“An industry fair is a great platform for building new relationships and getting to know each other,” says Bernd Aufderheide, president and CEO of Hamburg Messe und Congress GmbH–the city’s fair complex.
Held from 6 to 9 September 2016, SMM will highlight Green Propulsion—alternative, low-emission propulsion technologies such as LNG, methanol, hybrid and dual-fuel—and fuel cell systems, along with big data and digitalization.
“We are setting the stage for the formation of new international business contacts, providing opportunities for fair participants to become acquainted with Iranian companies and potential customers,” says Aufderheide.
A delegation from Hamburg Messe had visited Iran in December 2015 to attend Iranimex, an international marine industries exhibition.
During that visit, the group invited potential Iranian visitors, exhibitors and delegations to Germany.
“Iranian businesses are showing a lively interest in European products and German knowhow,” says the CEO.
“SMM is the maritime sector’s most important platform for face-to-face networking and closing business deals,” says Hauke Schlegel, chairman of the German engineering industry association VDMA.
“Following the lifting of trade sanctions, the country is in great need of innovation and new ships. We see great potential for collaboration with Iran.”
Schlegel stressed that since Iran continues to procure its shipbuilding equipment and technology from Germany and Europe, the country is of strategic importance to the supply industry.
