Who else visited the show?

"As a ferry operator, we attach particular importance to ensuring that passengers feel comfortable on board our ships. A very decisive factor in this is the interior design, i.e. room design, furniture, and wall and floor coverings. At MARINE INTERIORS, we can get inspiration when it comes to freshening up older ships or giving newbuildings an appealing design. Since the show is specifically tailored to the needs of the ferry and passenger shipping industry, we find the right partners there. The exhibitors know that it's not just a matter of the right design, but that safety aspects also play an important role in the choice of materials, for example."

Axel Meynköhn,
Geschäftsführer/CEO, W.D.R. (Wyker Dampfschiffs-Reederei Föhr-Amrum GmbH)

"Trade shows focused on specific subject areas, such as MARINE INTERIORS, have a special appeal for many of our member companies because the target group is more pointed than at the major events. This is true here for the ferry and cruise ship segments, in which German shipbuilding companies have a strong market position. In Hamburg, trade visitors will be able to experience the different facets of cabin and common area design and read about current trends. We as an association are pleased with the opportunity for exchange between shipping companies, shipyards and suppliers that this provides."

Dr. Reinhard Lüken,
Managing Director, German Shipbuilding and Ocean Industries Association (VSM)

"Environmental aspects are of great importance in the maritime industry today. Our 'Aurora Botnia' was the most environmentally friendly RoPax ferry in the world when it entered service in 2021 - and we want to keep that title in the future. At MARINE INTERIORS we find suppliers and interlocutors who share our points of view."

Peter Ståhlberg,
Managing Director, Wasaline

"Ferry operators must provide a seamless experience that makes passengers feel valued and understood. The fact that MARINE INTERIORS is focusing on ferry interiors this year is insanely exciting for us. The interface between design and shipbuilding has been missing on the market so far. I'm happy to be playing an active part in the conferences and I'm looking forward to the input of the other panelists."

"Ich freue mich, an der Konferenz-Session "Conference on Ferry Design" auf der MARINE INTERIORS Expo teilzunehmen, um die Möglichkeiten für Designer zu beleuchten, das Kundenerlebnis zu verbessern. Mit meiner Erfahrung in der Gestaltung einer breiten Palette von Touch-Points an Bord hoffe ich, dass ich einige Erkenntnisse und Beispiele weitergeben kann, die für die Zuhörer hilfreich sein werden."

Jason West,
Founder, WDC Creative

“To be truly sustainable, we have to have some kind of guidelines. We would very much welcome the opportunity to work with classification societies and get guidance from them on sustainability. With MARINE INTERIORS, it results in this unique interface with various ship classification societies. It's absolutely a win-win for us.”

MARINE INTERIORS and Hamburg Messe und Congress GmbH is not in any way associated with the sender of these emails and does not engage in the sale or trade of any of its customer lists whether exhibitor, sponsor or attendee. We are taking all available steps to investigate and minimize these emails, but it is almost impossible to eliminate this risk entirely, as the emails come from numerous sources and, often, cannot be traced.

In addition, Hamburg Messe und Congress GmbH has NOT appointed any company to call you directly and sell attendee lists.
