Euromaritime ultimate show for marine economy
The second edition of the European marine business show Euromaritime in February in Paris is a decidedly European show for all those involved in the marine economy and perhaps it is the only business show dedicated to European marine business.

Coastal and marine industries, including shipbuilding and shipping, ports and fisheries and energy, along with coastal tourism, represent 5 million jobs. Coastal regions contribute to 40 percent of Europe’s GDP From the 3rd to 5th of February, Porte de Versailles, Paris, will be host to two professional biennial events dedicated to the European civil maritime and waterway economy: The date is set for all those involved in European marine business, the organizers having once again decided to make Europe the central focus of the project. Euromaritime, created in 2013 and Eurowaterways, a new event for 2015, to enrich the existing maritime exhibition with its waterway offer. Leaders in these sectors, equipment manufacturers, solution finders etc. will have access to a comprehensive showcase, allowing them to exchange and discuss the future of Blue Growth in Europe. For the first edition of Euromaritime there were 180 exhibitors, over 5,000 professional visitors, and 140 key speakers in the conference and workshop programme. Euromaritime 2015 will of course build on the fundamental elements that proved so successful in the first edition, with relevant showcases for each sector of activity.
