Mercator is a B2B media company with a 30-year history, serving the marine business with events, magazines and online. It publishes the pan-European commercial marine magazine Maritime Journal, and produces the Seawork exhibition, now in its 22nd year. Situated exclusively in its own dedicated exhibition arena, M&CCE will keep its own brand and identity and will run concurrently with the three days of Seawork.

Andrew Webster, chief executive of Mercator, said, ‘This is great news for visitors and exhibitors to both Seawork and M&CCE, with real synergies between the two. There is a big overlap in content and business for people involved in marine construction, from harbourmasters to consulting engineers to operations managers and anyone in vessel and marine equipment deployment.”
