Until recently, the opportunity to have a celebrity attend an event, attach themselves to a name-brand or endorse a certain product or idea was untouchable. The thought of paying a person to promote a product was seen as something only Fortune 500 companies could afford. Social media has changed all that with brands and businesses utilizing celebrity influencers to connect directly with their demographics and increase sales and profits.

Following the success of Shiptec China, the 10th International Shipbuilding, Marine Equipment and Offshore Engineering Exhibition for China, planning is now underway for the 12th holding of this increasingly important event which takes place between the 21st and 24th October in 2014 at the Dalian World Expo Center..
