Past events

Nor-Shipping 2017

Nor-Shipping is the leading maritime event week in the Nordic region and is probably one of the most noteworthy events within the maritime and ocean industries in Europe. Our top-quality exhibition, high-level conferences and prime networking opportunities attract the international maritime industry to Oslo every other year. For over 50 years and with visitors from around 80 countries, Nor-Shipping has provided a platform for the maritime world to explore the future.

Africa@Nor-Shipping 2017 will be the very first instance in which a parallel program during the Nor-Shipping week will be dedicated towards developing a platform that promotes mutually beneficial business opportunities between Africa and Europe in the maritime and ocean industries. It will cover a range of topical issues that not only represent key challenges and opportunities, but also highlight avenues for improving sustainable business practices in the maritime and ocean industries in both geographies.

The Nor-Shipping week is filled with an incredibly diverse array of activities, with the exhibition at the heart of it all. The exhibition showcases approximately 22,500 sq. meters of the best and latest in maritime technology, services and solutions spread across six halls. The Nor-Shipping exhibition with a dedicated Africa Pavilion (for the African continent) will run for the entire Nor-Shipping week (i.e. from 29 May to 2 June, 2017). Many of our international exhibitors choose to be located in their country's national pavilion.

A nine square meter stand at the Africa Pavilion will cost NOK 62.160 (with today's exchange rate that is USD 7480)

As only 120 sq. meters are available for the Africa Pavilion in 2017, we ask that you make your booking and payment quickly to secure a space.

The Africa podium comprising a plenary seminar session followed by 3 parallel seminar sessions focused on key business opportunities and challenges in Africa’s maritime and ocean industries will take place on the 1st June, 2017. The day will be concluded with an exclusive (“By-Invitation Only”) Africa Night, that will double as a social and high-level networking event.

Norway represents a world-leading maritime and ocean industry cluster that is capable of delivering cutting edge innovation, technology, competence and commercial solutions and thereby paving the way for greener and more sustainable business practices within the global ocean and maritime industries. Africa@Nor-Shipping 2017 will provide an ideal platform for exploring new opportunities and partnerships between Africa and Norway (and the Nordic region) and for combining Norway's technical expertise and strong history of making long-term commitments to Africa’s enormous growth potential.
