German Innovation & Quality meets European maritime demand

What to expect?

BuyBlue is a B2B speed dating event where buyers meet suppliers. In face-to-face meetings lasting about ten minutes, both parties can get to know each other and present their offers, needs and services.

Through individually created and coordinated meeting plans, the maximum benefit from the one-day event is to be drawn for each participant. Last year, 480 meetings were held with 62 participating companies.

Take part in BuyBlue and benefit from the unique opportunity to generate business and network in one location while saving time, costs and planning activities.

Our non-profit approach will also allow the participation of smaller maritime companies, offering interesting solutions that might otherwise not be noticed by buyers and technical managers.

Your benefits!

Purchasing agents from European shipyards and technical managers from European ship-owners can benefit from the event by meeting many successful and highly innovative German suppliers in a time efficient manner and open new sourcing channels for equipment and services!

German suppliers can benfit by making new international business contacts without causing extensive travel time and costs. They also have the opportunity to meet marine buyers, to whom they normally have no access, and thus expand their network.


Take advantage of the opportunity!
