Honouring the local heritage was the key draw at the Tru-Marine stand at Sea Asia 2015.
In the spirit of SG50, the homegrown turbocharger specialist delighted the local palate with traditional snacks of kueh tu tu, kaya toast and kopitiam kopi.
Also gracing the Tru-Marine stand were accomplished Singaporean singer-songwriter, Tay Kewei as well as musician-songwriter Clarence Yeo, to perform a medley of songs from Tay’s albums and other perennial favourites.
Sea Asia is positioned as an international conference and exhibition for the global and local maritime and offshore communities to network and showcase maritime innovations, equipment and services. Heralded as the most successful maritime event yet, the event saw attendance by influential and respected leaders in the industry, registering traffic of over 16,000 participants from 85 countries over three days.
Another key highlight at the Tru-Marine stand was the strong showcase of its maker representations, with support in attendance by representatives from KBB Kompressorenbau Bannewitz, Mr Dietmar Neubert, Head of Service, as well as Napier Turbochargers, Mr John Owen, Senior Sales Engineer. On display were the makers’ highly regarded turbochargers ST7 by KBB and NA357 by Napier.
As one of the leading names in the maritime industry, Tru-Marine was handpicked to host the Sea Asia Youth Tour, an initiative organized by the Singapore Maritime Foundation that drew over 200 students from various Institutes of Higher Learning to explore their career opportunities within the marine industry.
The Sea Asia Youth Tour is one of the youth and community outreach programmes to attract young talent for the maritime manpower pool in the bid to promote and develop Singapore as an International Maritime Centre.
