Nor-Shipping uncovers ocean opportunity with launch of Opening Oceans in Denmark in 2018
Leading global maritime event week Nor-Shipping is making its first move outside Norway, with a new initiative to help maritime and ocean industry players realise the almost limitless business potential of the ocean space. Nor-Shipping’s Opening Oceans Conference, taking place in Copenhagen from 2-3 May 2018, will bring businesses together to illustrate and discuss key opportunities, equip delegates with the tools to tackle them, and facilitate fresh collaborations.
Timed to coincide with Danish Maritime Days, Opening Oceans Conference is supported by both the Norwegian Shipowners’ Association and Danish Shipping. It is targeted at c-level executives seeking sustainable business operations below, on and above the ocean waves. Nor-Shipping’s Sofia Furstenberg is heading the initiative in the role of Strategic Lead.
The conference will focus on several key issues over the course of its two-day duration. Central themes include energy production and access to minerals, changing logistic demands, food production, and capturing, collating and extracting value from the ever-increasing flow of ocean-related data.
Keynote speakers will address delegates within a high-tech arena, while meeting rooms, glass think tanks and informal collaborative working spaces will lay the foundations for exploring ideas, forming new partnerships and exploiting commercial opportunities.
Opening Oceans Conference will act as a bridge between this year’s Nor-Shipping and Nor-Shipping 2019, taking place across a series of venues in Lillestrøm and Oslo, Norway, between 04-07 June 2019. This will also seek to engage in uncovering and seizing diverse ocean opportunities, while retaining its core focus on showcasing and supporting international maritime businesses.
