The 27th of July was designated as a B2B event, where ASEAN companies were able to visit the booths of participating Korean companies to learn more about their products. These participating companies also conducted one-on-one discussions with their chosen companies and had a more private environment to talk about their companies and endeavors in more detail.

The hosts of KAMW hope to continue to organize these events annually, in order to expand collaboration opportunities between Korean, ASEAN, and Oceanian companies in the marine, offshore, and shipbuilding industries.
