Seawork Connect is the brand new, free to attend, virtual Seawork exhibition, running from 5-7 October offering the incomparable networking opportunities and full online conference programme that visitors to the ‘in person’ Seawork are so used to.

Seawork Connect and Seawork Connect Marine Civils run from 5th to 7th October

To help you stay ahead and keep you connected within the commercial marine industry until the next live Seawork returns to Southampton in June 2022, Seawork Connect will provide a valuable insight into the current innovations and developments in the commercial marine business.

The event will include the ever-popular MoD Session, USV Applications in Commercial Marine, Hybrid & Electric Propulsion Solutions as well as the next in the popular CMN Commercial Marine Network Workboat 2050 series. It will also host Seawork Connect Marine Civils, the event formerly known as Marine and Coastal Civil Engineering Expo (M&CCE).

Browse over 300 exhibitors and the latest products they have to offer. An AI matchmaking system pairs visitors with the correct equipment, exhibitors, online conferences and other visitors. Use Seawork Connect as a platform to network with other professionals in your sector, as well as the wider commercial marine industry.

It's well worth spending a few minutes some days ahead of the event getting underway to register, become familiar with the format and set up an effective profile. I've just done the full profile setup for myself and it took under 5 minutes.

In case three days is not enough, the Seawork Connect platform will also be open for two weeks after the virtual exhibition has closed to allow for follow up calls and contacts as well as access to information.
