Announcement of Cancellation

Due to concerns over the continued increase in the number of COVID-19 infections, the city of Imabari and the Imabari Maritime City Promotion Commitee have requested that Imabari Maritime Fair should not be held as scheduled in October. In view of the fact that Imabari Maritime Fair 2021 had already been postponed once from May to October, it is with deep regret that we have decided that it is not possible to hold the exhibition this year. We hereby confirm the decision to cancel Imabari Maritime Fair 2021, which was scheduled to be held in 7-9 Octover 2021.


We thank you very much for your warm support of “Bari-Ship” and request your kind understanding of this decision.
We look forward to your ongoing support for Sea Japan 2022 and Imabari Maritime Fair 2023.


Yours sincerely,

Bari-Ship Secretariat Office

SHOW Highlights

Bari-Ship exhibition and conference is held in the city of Imabari, home to the largest cluster of maritime-related industries in Japan. The city’s importance in this sector cannot be overstated – shipbuilding companies headquartered in Imabari account for one-third of all commercial tonnage built in Japan each year, while its shipowners control one-third of Japan’s ocean-going fleet. That’s why, every two years, Japan’s shipping industry gathers in Imabari to see the latest developments in maritime technology and to talk business. If you want to meet senior leaders and key management from some of Japan’s most important shipbuilders and ship owners, make sure you join them at Bari-Ship 2021.
