Tank Storage Asia 2013 Set to be Bigger and BetterMonday, 16 September 2013
SINGAPORE (SG) - Tank Storage Asia, taking place on 10–11 December 2013 at Singapore Expo, will be 30% bigger than the previous edition in 2012, with major names signed up to exhibit, new areas of focus and a top flight conference programme already taking shape.
The show floor has been expanded by almost a third to accommodate the growing number of manufacturers and suppliers who want to exhibit at the event. Emerson, Endress + Hauser, Kanon and Vacono are among the industry leading exhibitors already onboard, furthermore, Horizon Terminals is supporting the show.
Many of these big name companies, such as Veolia, Akzo Nobel and Shiva Engineering, have not exhibited at the show before. They recognise that Tank Storage Asia is the prime way of meeting the leading terminal operators, oil majors and petrochemical companies operating in the fast developing Asian market - a sector which is expected to grow by 45% by 2015.
Matthew Mear, Business Manager – Jet Mixing Solutions, Veolia Environmental Services (UK) Plc says:
“We have committed to exhibit at Tank Storage Asia for the first time. Asia is a critical market for us, and we are confident that Tank Storage Asia will be a key part of a targeted campaign to drive our growth in this region.”
The mix of established and new exhibitors will span tank maintenance, through to innovations in metering & measuring, pumps & valves, automation & loading equipment and inspection & certification services. The organisers are also developing certain aspects of the show, including tank design and construction, biofuels, lightning prevention, liquefied natural gas, unconventional gas and underground storage, with more exhibitors than ever before covering these supply areas.
Running alongside the exhibition will be a paid for, two-day conference covering the whole Asia region - from the Middle East to China and New Zealand. The world-renowned line-up of 20 speakers will cover themes such as: ‘understanding the local market,’ ‘preparing for market changes,’ ‘why the interest in China’ and ‘improving terminal profits, efficiency and safety.’ The talks will explore issues such as the outlook for the bulk liquid storage market in Asia, developments on Jurong Island, growth of chemical storage in Asia, recent changes to regulation and where the demand will be for LPG through to financing greenfield developments, opportunities in China and how to make your terminal appealing to a possible investor.
Commenting on the show, Matt Benyon, Managing Director of Tank Storage Asia says: “With almost 80% of exhibitors at the last Tank Storage Asia re-booking on the spot, I always thought the 2013 show would be bigger, but to be at least 30% bigger tremendous. All the industry decision makers from across the region are set to attend the show, and when they do they will find a bigger and even more content rich show than ever before.”
