Copland Events are delighted to announce that our 6th MTB "Meet the Buyer" forum will be held in Copenhagen 17th - 20th October 2012.

Following the success of the highly focussed and extremely successful MTB format, we were encouraged to hold MTB Marine 2012 in Copenhagen, Denmark. The decision to hold MTB in Scandinavia for the first time was prompted by the warm support and encouragement of the Danish Marine Group, part of the Danish Export Association (DEA) and the Norwegian Maritime Exporters' Association (NME).

The reputation of both the Danish and the Norwegians as leading maritime nations, with international recognition for their high quality, smart design and reliability, will raise the profile of MTB Marine as the place for owners/operators to meet with suppliers and source products and supplies for their vessels.

Meet the Buyer Marine will attract 100 Buyers from the top European and Middle Eastern Shipowners/Operators. Everything from small containers and chemical carriers to large bulk carriers and tankers will be represented at the forum, with some of the biggest Owners already confirmed.

Suppliers will join us from worldwide to take advantage of this unique opportunity to meet and have focussed sales appointments with so many Purchasing/Technical Managers/Directors in one place over two days.

Please get in touch if you would like to see a list of attendees and if you would like further information:

Sixth MTB Marine Europe Copenhagen a Resounding Success

Copland Events’ sixth MTB Marine Europe, the first MTB ever hosted in Scandinavia, brought together Ship Owners/Operators’ representatives; responsible for Purchasing decision-making for over 4000 vessels, to meet with suppliers of a wide range of products and services for their fleets. Copland Events owe thanks to the Danish Marine Group and the Norwegian Maritime Exporters for their support and endorsement to their members.


Buyers from 22 nations joined the forum to meet with suppliers from over 20 different nations. Over the 2 day event Copland Events Ltd. facilitated a tremendous total of 3216 appointments between Buyers and Suppliers, with many more informal meetings carried out during breakfasts, coffees, lunches and the 3 evenings of networking events. The reception of the forum was brilliant with all of the attendees optimistic about the future business to come from the forum. Many of the Suppliers who joined the forum were already working on Requests for Quote’s and compiling Technical Specifications for the Buyers.


There were well over 100 new-buildings under discussion, with Buyers taking advantage of the unique opportunity to meet new suppliers, to help lower costs and delivery times, keep abreast of innovations, increase quality and provide alternative options for sourcing.
