The organizers of Tank Storage Asia, taking place on 10–11 December 2013 at Singapore Expo, have announce that the show will be 30% bigger than the previous edition in 2012.
In a statement issued on Monday (15 July), easyFairs said: "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."
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.
EasyFairs said that it was 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 full line-up of 20 speakers will be unveiled in August. However the programme is already taking shape under the themes of: ‘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 able to state almost six months ahead of time that it has expanded by 30% is 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."
