Leading Brands from crewing sector join Seatrade Maritime CrewConnect Global


Anticipation is growing for Seatrade Maritime CrewConnect Global, which will bring the global crewing and manning industry to Manila for a three-day experience where a curated collection of industry-leading suppliers will have the very best in crewing services, solutions, and products on showcase.

From 21 – 23 November 2023, attendees will have the opportunity to connect with an impressive array of exhibitors, including providers of training, welfare, technology, satellite, administration, and travel services. Influential names including OSM Thome, KONGSBERG, Mintra, Wartsila and Ocean Technologies Group are among those confirmed to feature within the Supplier Showcase at Seatrade Maritime CrewConnect Global.

“As with the general shipping industry, the crewing sector finds itself at a crucial point of development. New, never-before-seen challenges are on the horizon; the traditional method of crew management is now shifting towards requiring a more holistic approach; and the requirements of tomorrow’s seafarer are continuously evolving,” said Chris Morley, Group Director – Seatrade Maritime.

“The Supplier Showcase at Seatrade CrewConnect Global is a unique group of innovators and forward-thinkers, each bringing with them a unique perspective and commitment to driving industry progress. This is a great opportunity for attendees to connect with high quality suppliers, build productive relationships and discover the latest developments,” continued Morley.

In addition to established industry heavyweights, attendees will also discover forward-thinking newcomers and startups within the brand-new ‘New to Show Zone’.

“The New to Show Zone is dedicated to supporting those businesses who are either new to the crewing industry or Seatrade Maritime CrewConnect. I would strongly encourage attendees to explore this area at the event as it features some fantastic names including Onboard Maritime, Port Medical Management and Tilla,” added Morley.

Registration is now open for Seatrade Maritime CrewConnect Global, which will take place 21 – 23 November 2023 at Sofitel Philippine Plaza Manila and feature a three-day conference, supplier Expo and the ever-popular CrewConnect Global Awards. Early bird rates will end on Friday 13 October.
