Econosto UK exhibit at Seawork 2009

Seawork International is Europe’s largest port-based Marine and Commercial Workboat Exhibition and Conference, and has been established for over a decade. For three days each June in Southampton, UK, the exhibition offers a unique combination of more than 10,000m˛ of indoor, quayside and waterborne displays with live events and demonstrations.

A major event within the commercial marine industry, the show attracts hundreds of exhibitors and thousands of visitors from right across the globe. Part of the reason for this success is the incorporation of specialist areas such as DiveWork, Fluid Power, and Shipbuilding & Repair pavilions. Also new this year was a Marine Civils Pavilion.

Econosto UK made the decision to exhibit for the first time at the 2009 Seawork from 16-19 June. It proved to be the right decision according to Clive Gamble, MD of Econosto UK, “Although many people will associate Econosto with our well-established markets such as oil, gas and energy, the Econosto Group have a long history of supply to shipbuilding and other maritime industries and it is a growing area for Econosto UK. Attendance at an event like Seawork, which serves all of the commercial marine sector, is a prime opportunity to reach potential customers within the industry”.

Already well established as a preferred supplier to leading shipbuilders such as BVT, and with a project team in place who are used to dealing with the requirements of maritime industries, Econosto UK has just the right combination of experience and products to develop within this sector. Seawork 2009 proved to be an ideal platform for meeting a variety of potential customers across a broad range of maritime industries.

Throughout the three day event, our stand staff was kept busy with interest and enquiries coming from companies that already knew or dealt with us plus a good level of interest from those who had little or no previous knowledge of Econosto UK.

Overall, expectations were exceeded in terms of visitor numbers to the stand and the quality of enquiries was extremely good making this exhibition very likely to become a regular in the events calendar.
