SMM Hamburg

03. - 06. September 2024 | International trade fair for shipbuilding, machinery and marine technology

The SMM in Hamburg is the world-leading fair of the maritime economy. It takes place every two years in Hamburg, because due to the long maritime tradition as a dynamic commercial center Hamburg offers the ideal location for the SMM. It is the trade fair for shipbuilding, machinery and marine technology with the largest international character. Visitors and exhibitors from all over the world represent the current state of the maritime industry worldwide and can here present their latest technologies or receive information about the latest products, innovations, trends and services.

No other show has such a wide range of international exhibitors and visitors and so determines the success of the industry. However, the SMM is more than just a trade show. With a comprehensive program consisting of conferences, symposia and workshops held by internationally recognized speakers on important global issues, it forms the perfect setting for the entire maritime industry.

On the whole the organisers welcomed on the 4 days of the fair, from 04. September to 07. September 2018, about 2289 exhibitors from 69 countries and 50000 visitors from 120 countries on the SMM in Hamburg.
