A COMMERCIAL boat show is set to expand again next year, following the most successful event in its 16-year history.
Seawork International is run by Fareham-based Mercator Media, taking place at the Port of Southampton each summer.
It is a chance for those companies working within the commercial marine sector – as opposed to the leisure marine industry – to show off their new developments, meet existing customers, and find a bigger customer base.
This year the exhibition expanded into part of Hall C within the port’s fruit terminal, and now organisers have revealed the event will take all of the extra hall over in 2014.
A spokesman said: ‘The high level of exhibitors returning for next year, many – including Bainbridge International, Marine & Industrial Transmissions and Strategic Marine from Australia – requesting bigger stands, has contributed to the Seawork management expanding the boundaries of the exhibition once again.’
Seawork 2014 will be on June 10.
