Welcome to Copland Events

Having successfully organised similar events over several years, we are delighted to bring you the MTB - 'Meet the Buyer' programme.

These meetings have changed the way companies conduct their business as they offer both buyers and suppliers an opportunity to meet, network and conduct business in a way that is simply not possible in other forms of marketing.

MTB Workboats

MTB Workboats

19th - 22nd September 2018

"Meet the Buyer" Workboats Rhodes 2018 will be the 9th MTB Workboats forum. The decision was made to take the forum to Rhodes, following encouragement from the Greek Workboat community to return to Greece, Rhodes’s central location in Europe and the accessibility from the Middle/Far East; making Rhodes a historic and beautiful place for the forum!

Meet the Buyer Workboats will again attract 60+ Buyers (responsible for over 2500 Workboats) from Europe, the Middle and Far East. This will include some of the world's biggest Workboat Owners and Operators who continue to support the forum and our highly successful and time efficient "Meet the Buyer" concept. 


With international vessels owners/operators joining MTB Workboats 2018 to have focused meetings with suppliers to help them with their Supply Chain Management, Fleet Operations/Management, New-builds and Maintenance programmes; MTB Workboats has become the event of choice for both Suppliers and Workboat Owners/Operators worldwide.


Boskalis (900+ vessels), SOCAR (200+ vessels), Pacific Basin (200+ vessels), Solstad Offshore Asia (60+ vessels), VLOOT dab (40+ vessels) and Zahker Marine (70+ vessels) are amongst the Owners/Operators already registered to attend.


The Workboat market continues to remain in a stable position. Workboat Owners/Operators continue to see high demand and most service craft have been able to find a wide array of employment opportunities, especially with offshore wind farm installations. The demand for Offshore Support Vessels seems to be growing positively again; driven by growing international demand for even deeper offshore rig fleets and spending continuing in exploration and production.


MTB Workboats remains the only highly focused programme of one-to-one appointments between Senior Directors, Technical Purchasing Managers, General Managers, Operations Managers and other individuals responsible for purchasing decision-making within Workboat Companies; together with Supplier Companies from all areas of the industry.


Workboat Owners and Operators include supply boats (OSV/PSV), dredgers, MPSVs, WFSVs, tugs, AHTS, survey vessels, fishing vessels, pontoons, cranes, floating cranes, barges, jack up rigs, ROV’s, river / coastal / short sea barges etc.
