Q&A with Chris Ashington – Service Engineer
June 20, 2019

Seawork 2019 was a great success for Watermota, the three day exhibition resulted in the team receiving numerous quotation requests for the full range of products as well as meeting with existing clients and suppliers. The Europe’s largest commercial marine and workboat exhibition created a unique opportunity to showcase the products and services to the international market with positive results.

The new stand, designed by Quadrant2design looked fantastic with everyone commenting on the superb display. Quadrant2design live and breathe exhibition stands, its all they do. They think about every angle of exhibiting, not just the design of the stand, to provide the most comprehensive service possible.

The event hosted several speakers and conferences that focused on innovation, trends and industry insight. Our Managing Director, Alison Merrick, joined the “dedicated Women in the Marine Industry networking event” on the Wednesday. The speakers were, Sue Terpilowski, Chair of Maritime UK’s Women’s Task Group and president of WISTA UK, and Zella Compton, playwright, librettist, lyricist, author, poet and columnist. The event saw over 70 people attend and offered women working in the commercial marine industry the opportunity to get together, network and learn about key industry developments; hot news was the imminent formation of WISTA Southampton.

James Wyatt, Sales Manager, said “Seawork is a fantastic show and is a great opportunity to bring the marine industry together. This year our stand made a huge impact and the new products we showcased received great feedback. The new digital panel on the Doosan propulsion engine drew a lot of attention. The fact that this is the manufacturer’s own supply panel makes it unique and also creates a complete solution with 100% compatibility. As always at Seawork, we were able to meet with our customers and suppliers which gives us opportunities to discuss ongoing needs and future projects. We now have a large number of enquiries for us to follow up over the next few weeks and are already looking forward to Seawork 2020.”
