Why Exhibit?

The Turkish maritime industry stands among the world's leading shipbuilding and shipping nations. Istanbul serves as a pivotal maritime hub, linking Europe, Central Asia, and the Middle East. Presently, the Istanbul region hosts an impressive total of 126 active shipyards in proximity to Tuzla, Yalova, and Izmit.

These shipyards are versatile, offering a range of services including conversion, repair, maintenance, and new construction projects. Many of these facilities maintain substantial forward orderbook cover, participating actively across diverse segments such as tankers, Ro-Ro vessels, fishing vessels, tugs, naval and patrol vessels, passenger vessels, bulk and container carriers, heavy lifting vessels, multi-purpose ships, platform support vessels, and super yachts.

It provides an opportunity to connect with ship owners, ship managers, charterers, ship brokers, shipyards, technical engineers, ship designers, naval architects, navy authorities, port managements, dredging contractors, surveyors, maritime associations, maritime universities, media, and research institutes.
