The event provided a platform for insightful discussions on crucial topics that are shaping the future of inland and coastal marine operations.

One of the focal points of the trade show was the discussion on upcoming shipyard projects. Attendees gained valuable insights into the evolving landscape of shipbuilding, with a focus on innovation, sustainability and efficiency. ExxonMobil actively engaged in conversations about the industry's future and the role it plays in supporting advancements in ship construction.

The event also delved into the dynamics of mergers and acquisitions amongst harbour tug operators. Our team recognises the importance of a seamless transition and the level of support from a technical perspective the industry needs to navigate these challenges. The working sessions at IWBS also extended to small business resellers and their support for government-related business.

Now, more than ever, it is essential to foster collaboration between small businesses and government entities, thereby contributing to the overall growth and resilience of the maritime industry.
