Opening Oceans Conference
02.05.2018 @ 08:00 - 03.05.2018 @ 17:00
Nor-Shipping, the leading strategic meeting for shipping and maritime professionals, has a new initiative that creates a unique level of sustainable economic collaboration across the many ocean industries.
Opening Oceans is the first meeting of its kind to bring together sustainable goals of the ocean economies with the solutions, services and skills of the maritime sector, a sector that is rapidly evolving to meet societal expectations of the future.
The OECD describes the oceans as the new economic frontier. They offer a chance to address many of the global challenges being faced by society and planet, but such an achievement comes with responsibility.
There is the responsibility for these new ocean industries to accord with recognised sustainability goals as they meet the increased calls for food and energy security, of dynamic transport models. Shipping and maritime industries are part of these ocean industries, and can offer expertise and skills as sustainable ocean economies develop.
The Opening Oceans, 2 – 3 May, multi-strand programme will take place in a dynamic theatre for collaboration that will be created especially for the event alongside the Danish Maritime Days exhibition in Copenhagen.
The interactive programme ensures that that there is something for everyone happening at all times with three distinct types of event spaces created to facilitate the exploration of ideas, formation of partnerships and the creation of commercial opportunities.

With multiple sessions going on at a time, set alongside relaxed networking zones there is something for everyone at all times.
