RIO DE JANEIRO, Feb. 24, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- With little more than six months ahead of the event, which will take place on August 12th to 14th in Rio de Janeiro, organised by UBM Asia, Marintec South America -- 11th Navalshore has already achieved numbers only expected for April.

"Apart from a record renovation, the event is already over 80% of marketed spaces and with 13 international pavilions from countries that are considered as reference for the industry, such as Norway, Germany, and among South American countries Argentina and Uruguay have already confirmed," highlights Renan Joel, event manager.

For over a decade boosting the shipbuilding and offshore industry, the event has become a reference and spaces available are being highly contested, especially since for 2014 there are projects being developed that will add value to the general public. "For this year we have lots of news for visitors and exhibitors, we still have great spaces available for companies wishing to exhibit, but it is better to run or the company may stay out of this edition," adds Joel.

To Luiz Salgado, from Mitsubishi Heavy Industries Brazil, who has been participating in this event six years now, a presence in Marintec South America - 11th Navalshore is important because it demonstrates that the company is growing and consolidated itself in the market. "The event's format and the audience is the most suitable for our segment, if compared to other events," concludes Luiz Salgado.

Overcoming regionalism and consolidating itself as a meeting point in the industry in South America

The event has been increasing the participation of international brands with each edition, in 2013 the event closed with 11 international pavilions, for 2014 the event already counts with 13 pavilions that will bring to the event technology, best practices and solutions in products and services essential to the development of the national chain.

This aspect shows that the event exceeded regionalist barriers and became the meeting point of the industry in South America, bringing together leading international and national players in one place. "Above all, it is an event that has gained international context, as it is no longer a local fair, it does not focus only on local manufacturers. The tentacles that this administration has abroad, have brought manufacturers from places that have never been present here in our market," highlights Cesar Prata, from Abimaq.
