Nor-Shipping celebrates ‘most important’ event week

June 19, 2017 - Nor-Shipping believes that its 2017 outing marked a watershed moment for the leading global maritime event week, with strong visitor numbers, more international participants than ever before, and a speaker programme that will help set the industry agenda for years to come. Nor-Shipping 2017, which took place across a series of venues in Oslo and Lillestrøm from 30 May to 2 June, held more events than ever (220), gathered a greater number of speakers than past programmes (150), and welcomed exhibitors from some 48 countries.

Despite on-going tough market conditions, overall visitor numbers were maintained, with people from some 75 nations making the trip to Norway. However, as Nor-Shipping Director Birgit Liodden explains, the figures only tell part of the story. “It goes without saying that we’re happy to attract strong visitor, delegate and exhibitor numbers,” Liodden states, “but what we’re most proud of is the depth of content, insight and innovation on show throughout the week. “From the revolutionary transport system of Hyperloop Transportation Technologies, to clean energy pioneers and planners, to major league shipowners, equipment and service suppliers, regulators, governments, cargo owners, and tech trailblazers, Nor-Shipping 2017 was the meeting place for the people that matter to maritime.

“Our conferences tackled the big industry issues – such as promoting diversity, sustainable shipping success, and the opportunities, and challenges, of increased digitization – while our podiums delivered unique insights on the key hotspots of Africa, Asia and Brazil. From the exhibition floors to the networking opportunities down by the water in Oslo, there really was something for everyone – and something of lasting value.” Liodden sees many highlights from the week, with the decision to dedicate the whole of Hall A to the new industry concept of Disruptive Sustainability as a standout.
