Embracing the burgeoning offshore marine market, Middle East Workboats has been renamed Offshore Marine & Workboats Middle East in time for the 5th chapter of this 3 day exhibition and conference held biennially in Abu Dhabi. The focus of the event will now be on not only the workboat sector, but the offshore marine market taking into consideration the growing demand for a new generation of offshore support vessels to support infrastructure expansion both on and offshore. The event has also expanded its reach into new geographic territories, in particular the Caspian and Africa. Each geographic region of the offshore sector offers particular challenges and complexities for companies looking to invest in the region and a comprehensive conference programme tackles many of the most topical concerns. Looking at the latest innovations in the workboat sector, the Seatrade Technology Forum is a day-long programme of presentations from international experts exploring new technologies. Alongside the exhibition, these three days in Abu Dhabi present the region's only platform to network and do business in the workboat and offshore marine sectors.
