Sales and Business Development for the Maritime Industries, Commercial Products & Services

Welcome to The Reference Point

We have reason to celebrate! This year is our 21st anniversary, we have come of age, we are in business and weathering the storm.

And we have more good news: we are expanding!

We are increasingly being asked to represent maritime companies from the commercial marine and superyacht sectors. This includes sales support, setting up distribution networks and raising awareness for their products and services.

We have spent years building our networks for SMM (shipbuilding, marine technology, machinery) and WindEnergy Hamburg, the global on- and offshore expo and experience, which is  why we have been appointed the official UK and Ireland representative for ACHEMA, the world forum for the process technologies in Frankfurt.

These are three world-leading international technology trade shows in Germany.


With many years of experience in the international trade fair sector, focussing on world-leading technology and manufacturing shows, we are happy to lend you a hand when it comes to planning your own participation from inception to completion.

Our business generation service centers on facilitating sales, marketing, and distribution for companies that wish to expand into Europe or the UK.
We focus on the maritime sector and have undertaken many similar projects in the past, also for the tourism and legal sectors, from arts, antiques and publishing projects to the promotion of scientific topics, services and products and overseas missions.
