With more than 500 participants the NEVA is the biggest exhibition of its kind in Eastern Europe and the CIS.

The exhibition comprises the areas of shipbuilding and ship repairing, marine equipment, design, offshore technology, oil and gas extraction, marine exploration of the Arctic regions and the Northern Sea Route, safety, navigation and hydrography.

In May 2015, the cancellation of the official German pavilion at the NEVA 2015 in St. Petersburg was announced. The German Shipbuilding and Ocean Industries Association (VSM) regrets this decision.

However, even more we welcome the strong support of the German industry through DOLPHIN EXHIBITIONS in organising a private German Pavilion. Despite the difficulties caused by the cancellation of the official German contribution and the current diplomatic situation, many companies decided to represent themselves as reliable partners and showcase their innovative products on the Russian market. Including independent exhibitors, about 25 representatives of the German maritime sector are now participating in the event.

The VSM supports the continuous participation of German enterprises in the exhibition in St. Petersburg.

“We specifically welcome an ongoing economic and civic dialog. What better than an international civilian maritime exhibition to support this? We hope there will be an official German pavilion in 2017 again”, states the VSM.
