The NEVA 2017 Exhibition and Conference Programme theme covered the broadest spectrum of commercial maritime topics found within the Russian event calendar. NEVA 2019 is the premier B2B platform for international companies to access and benefit from the opportunity of Russia's maritime industry boom. In 2019, join the list of participants at NEVA 2017 who benefited by engaging with one of the fastest growing global maritime markets.
Both International and Russian organisations alike answered the call of opportunity from NEVA 2017. 15000+ professionals and visitors attended the Exhibition and Conference Programme to join over 600 participating organisations and enjoy a direct networking connection to Russian maritime industry buyers who are actively seeking best-of-breed internationally-sourced products and services to fulfil their live build projects and active redevelopment requirements.
NEVA 2017 achieved full occupancy of the gross 26,600m2 space allotted within Expoforum, St Petersburg’s premier event venue. Participants included over 630 companies from 36 countries, while the parallel multi-streamed conference attracted over 1,500 speakers and delegates.
Organisers Dolphin Exhibitions reported that those booking stand space on behalf of China, Finland, Netherlands, Poland, Turkey, Germany's Mecklenburg-Vorpommern region and Iceland's KNARR Maritime grouping had already expressed plans to return, with all seeking more space. New inquiries had come from maritime interests representing Italy, Spain and South Korea, said Matthew White, General Director Dolphin Exhibitions.
“It is fair to say that NEVA 2017 has resulted in the most international exhibition in recent times, and participation at the accompanying conference demonstrated the value of overseas engagement. The feedback is that we can look forward to attracting even more international partners in 2019," said Mr White.
Inquiries are welcome now concerning NEVA 2019, which will be staged at the Expoforum conference and exhibition centre St Petersburg between September 17-20, 2019.
