“Hosting Seatrade Middle East Maritime again was a proud moment for Dubai and the UAE whose sea-faring traditions underpin the strong fundamentals of the shipping business in the region. The high quality of the 2010 edition was reflected in the views expressed and shared by the expert delegates as they discussed the state of the industry in the Middle East. DP World cherishes its participation in this showcase event and will continue to be an active member of the Seatrade community to work towards enhancing regional awareness and maintain our presence as the key player in the UAE’s maritime sector.”
Mohammed Al Muallen, Senior Vice President and Managing Director, DP World, UAE region.
“ 2010 was our first year at Seatrade Middle East and what a great success! Quality visitors to our stand resulting in new customers with some very interesting business opportunities, all of which are now being fully developed. Our time, resources and energy were not waste. Will definitely be exhibiting next year – that’s for sure!!! ”

Although we do not sell the typical product to be marketed in an exhibition, we found Seatrade Middle East Maritime an excellent method to enhance our brand in the Region: the number of contacts participating to SMEM is simply incredible and so is the business opportunity the presence there can create. We are at our second participation and already looking forward to the next one!”
