Out and about at international spring shows
Attending international trade exhibitions and boat shows is a vital part of our work at Saltwater Stone and this year seems to have been busier than ever so far. The spring season kicked off with Ocean Business in Southampton, followed by Palma Superyacht Show and MYBA Charter Show in Barcelona. This may give the impression our focus has been centred on the leisure sector, but the balance will be redressed in June as we are preparing to support our commercial clients at Nor-Shipping and Seawork. Of course, not forgetting our attendance at the Ocean Business subsea expo in April too.
Not only do we sponsor the Seawork press office, Saltwater Stone is also responsible for organising and running the European Commercial Marine Awards, held in conjunction with the show. Our work involves sitting in on the judge’s deliberation time to collate comments on the winners, working with the presenters to write scripts and create the awards, liaising with the AV and catering teams and generally ensuring everything runs smoothly on the night.
The Saltwater Stone team also puts together the presentation to run alongside the winners’ announcements and our Non-Executive Director Clive Bartlett will be joining Maritime Journal editor Jake Frith to host the awards on behalf of Mercator Media.
