SMM Hamburg postponed to February 2021


SMM Hamburg, the world’s largest international shipbuilding and marine industry fair, which usually takes place in September has been rescheduled due to the coronavirus pandemic measures still in place.


“Looking at the restrictions on major events as well as the international travel bans due to the dynamic course of the coronavirus pandemic, we took a decision that will benefit everyone. Instead of running SMM as planned in September, we are postponing it to the beginning of next year,” the announcement from the organizers reads.

Hence, SMM is now scheduled to take place from 2-5 February 2021. The period of eight months is expected to provide ample time for global travel operations to resume to normal.

According to the organizers, the trade fair is fully booked and all hygienic and safety requirements would be met to secure the health of visitors and exhibitors.

Over 2,200 exhibitors are set to take to the exhibition floor to showcase their technology and connect with industry peers.

As informed, the tickets bought so far remain valid.
