Team Norway was well represented during Sea Asia in 2017. The Norwegian pavilion represented the exhibitors Ulstein Asia Pte Ltd, Autronica Fire & Security AS, Saint-Gobain Weber, AUTO MASKIN AS, NAVTOR and VARD. NME had as usual a lounge area related to the Team Norway pavilion, where food and drinks were served. We have an impression that exhibitors and visitors have been pleased with the exhibition- with everything from quality at the fair, service level and number of visitors to the Norwegian Pavilion.
In total, 80 countries were represented on Sea Asia 2017, and the Norwegian pavilion was among ten national pavilions at the exhibition. More than 16,000 visitors were expected. The final figures from the trade show organizers will be announced later.
Norwegian Maritime Exporters were represented at the grand opening of the fair, together with Andreas Sohmen-Pao, State Secretary Dilek Ayhn, Ambassador Tormod Endresen and Micheal Duck. Based on the seminars and conferences NME attended, we have a good impression of the presentations and the interesting themes that were chosen.
Finally, we would like to thank Susanna Quek and Torun Taralrud from Innovation Norway Singapore for great help. When we travel around the world, clever and supportive people are much appreaciated.
