Twenty-two years of Seawork
From the outset Seawork filled a gap in the market as the only showcase for operators, builders and equipment suppliers of small to medium-sized commercial vessels. When it was founded in 1997, by Mercator Media’s CEO Andrew Webster, the only existing commercial shows were in mainland Europe, and these were primarily aimed at larger ships. By focusing on workboats and the smaller end of the shipping market, Seawork filled a niche and also created a new platform for products which crossed over from the leisure marine market.
After two decades Seawork has grown to become one of the most important commercial marine shows in Europe, catering for smaller vessels. It offers a unique combination of covered exhibition space, open-air demonstrations and floating displays, as well as conferences and an awards ceremony. Each year it attracts over 600 exhibitors and around 7,7000 attendees from around the world.
The Saltwater Stone team will be on hand throughout Seawork and available for informal meetings with any visitors or exhibitors looking for new ways to communicate with their customers and the media.
