Over the past several years Japanese ship owners, ship builders and marine equipment manufacturers have ridden out a 'perfect storm' caused by a fiercely strong yen, intense international competition and unfavorable economic conditions. The result is that they are now leaner, fitter and stronger than ever before.
They are well placed to take advantage of the improving economy and a weaker yen, the emergence of new cargos & trades, and heightened technological and environmental requirements. The Japanese maritime market is mature, established and reliable. If you have outstanding products and services to offer you will find highquality buyers in Japan. Meet them at SEA JAPAN 2014.

IRN will host the inaugural West Africa Oil & Gas Security 2014 Summit, the latest addition to IRN’s well-established oil and gas security portfolio.
This timely Summit will be held in Lagos, the fastest growing city in the African continent, on 18th- 19th June. Nigeria is oil rich and soon to be the continent’s largest economy; however, the country is beset with security incidents that threaten the stability of the oil industry and communities in vicinity of it; Nigeria is thus the ideal setting for this crucial forum.
The meeting will be a discrete platform where delegates can share intelligence with other senior level experts in the oil and gas industry and relevant Governmental bodies on how to effectively cooperate with local communities, deflect bribery demands, improve information sharing between neighbouring states, secure ports and offshore assets, develop defence plans for vessels transiting through high risk areas, select the most advanced security systems, and prevent pipeline sabotage.
There will be a number of high- profile security case studies, panel discussions, and presentations concentrated on the threat posed by expanding terrorism and extremism; oil theft; offshore infrastructure attack, and piracy prevention, to name a few.
Attendees will also benefit from a number of networking opportunities including the Private Gala Dinner and Brandy & Cigar Networking, to allow them to forge valuable business relationships in a relaxed and informal fashion.
