"Meet the Buyer" Workboats Barcelona 2014 will be the first "Meet the Buyer" Workboats forum that Copland Events have held in Barcelona. The decision was made to take the forum to Spain, following encouragement from the Workboat community and with Barcelona's central and easily accessible location from Europe and the Middle/Far East providing a convenient, historic and very beautiful meeting place for the forum!

Meet the Buyer Workboats will again attract 70+ 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 over 70 international vessels owners/operators joining MTB Workboats 2014 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.

The Workboat market continues to remain in a very stable position. Workboat Owners/Operators have been in high demand in recent years and most service craft have been able to find a wide array of employment opportunities, especially in the new and exciting offshore wind farm installations. Also the demand for Offshore Support Vessels is continuing its positive growth; driven by strong international demand for even deeper offshore rig fleets and higher levels of spending continuing to stem from steady growth in exploration and production.

MTB 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.
