July 5 - One month since plans were unveiled for the 1st Heavy Cargo & Equipment Exhibition in Macao from 16-17th March 2011, the organisers have announced that Rickmers Linie, Beluga Shipping and SE Shipping have already signed up to exhibit at the event

Sales and marketing for the exhibition are now under way, lead by Horseshoemedia Ltd of London, assisted by the team behind the event, American Journal of Transportation (AJOT), and the directors from the Worldwide Project Consortium (WWPC) and Cargo Equipment Experts (CEE).

Stuart Murdoch of WWPC and CEE said: "The Venetian was the first and only location that came to mind when looking for a suitable venue for this type of exhibition. Not only is it situated at the doorsteps of the world's largest and fast growing market but it has huge potentials for conferences and exhibitions such as ours. Travellers do not need to go through lengthy visa applications or time consuming queues at immigration points when going to Macao"

Fellow director of WWPC and CEE, Wolfgang Karau, added: "The professional support and friendly welcome at our venue inspection a few weeks ago left all of our team with a great feeling that this exhibition will be a success and has potential to become an institution in Macao with a yearly opening. To bring technology and expertise for moving heavy cargo to China in a market specific exhibition is the goal we like to achieve and we are confident to succeed in our aim."

The exhibition will also be the host for a special conference forum on heavy cargo, which will feature guest speakers from various lines which serve this particular business segment.
