Danish Maritime Fair 2018, which takes place at the event location Lokomotivværkstedet in Copenhagen from the 2nd – 4th of May 2018, has just signed a contract with their first Turkish exhibiter ever, at the international Danish exhibition.
The exhibiter is the cutting edge Turkish shipyard Özata Shipyard, located in Altinova, approximately 80 kilometers southeast of Istanbul. The shipyard is capable of delivering a variety of different ship types up to 30,000 DWT. In addition to traditional steel ships, the ship yard also manufactures carbon fiber vessels.
”We are both happy and proud to present our first Turkish exhibiter at the Danish Maritime fair”, says Martin Uhlenfeldt, Partner at Media Group Maritime Denmark, who organizes the Danish Maritime fair.
”Naturally, we have a lot of Danish exhibitors at the Danish Maritime fair, which we are very happy about” says Martin Uhlenfeldt.
”But we do strive to reach the world, and we are therefore very pleased that we have made contact with the big Turkish market.”
Özata Shipyard was founded in 1985 and until the year of 2002, the ship yard was based in the city of Tuzla, but moved to new facilities in an 60.000 square feet area near Altinova.
Özata Shipyard produces various ship types, including rare Carbon Fiber Catamaran Ferries - a production in which highly specialized knowledge is needed, and a process where proficient employees are key. Other ship types include luxury yachts, passenger ships, tankers and a number of special ships as for example rescue SAR boats.
Danish Maritime Fair was founded in 2014 by the Danish Media Group Maritime Denmark, and the exhibition taking place in the beginning of May 2018 is the fourth edition. The exhibition is part of Danish Maritime Days, which was also established in 2014.
From 2014 to 2017, the Danish Maritime Fair and Danish Maritime Days was held every year in the month of October, but from now on, both the exhibition and the maritime days will take place every two years – with the next time being in May 2018.
Meanwhile the exhibition takes place, two big maritime conferences as well as a number of smaller events and seminars will take place at the fair venue – Lokomotivværkstedet - an industrial building rich in history located in Copenhagen's Sydhavn.
