After almost three years of waiting, it’s finally time for Nor-Shipping again, as key industry decision makers ready themselves to descend upon Oslo and Lillestrøm.
‘Your Arena for Ocean Solutions’, taking place 4-7 April, is one of the first major international gathering of maritime and ocean industry leaders since the global pandemic began. As such, notes Sidsel Norvik, Nor-Shipping Director, it provides a much-needed platform to connect, share knowledge and build partnerships capable of tackling both the opportunities and challenges on the business horizon.
“I’m really looking forward to welcoming the world to what, I think, is going to be the most important Nor-Shipping we’ve ever held,” Norvik comments. “After such a long period of digital meetings and isolation, the energy and enthusiasm we’re bound to see from face-to-face meetings will be something special. We sense a real excitement about the prospect of the community coming together again. And we need to seize on that positivity to enable progress, now more than ever.”
Added value activities
Visitors who arrived in Norway on Monday expect a busy, and productive, week ahead. The exhibition is arguably the main draw, with four halls filled with companies from 33 countries, and national pavilions from Turkey, Denmark, Germany, Spain, USA, UK, Japan, and The Netherlands, to name a few.
Knowledge sharing is central to Nor-Shipping, with The Ocean Leadership Conference on 4 April starting proceedings with a mixture of insight, inspiration and political gravitas. Here an audience of 900 C-level executives will watch speakers including Anders Fogh Rasmussen, the former Secretary General of NATO and Prime Minister of Denmark, Kitack Lim, Secretary General IMO, Kjerstin Braathen, CEO DNB, and Håkan Agnevall, President & CEO Wärtsilä Corporation, amongst others.
