Danish Maritime Days is back with open doors and an international agenda

Danish Shipping, Danish Maritime and the Danish Maritime Authority have been looking forward to once again welcoming everyone to this falls big maritime event: Danish Maritime Days – now finally without restrictions.

DMD 2022 will be held on 4-6 October, and will, as always, present an exciting and packed schedule of all the most important maritime topics, from both a Danish and an international perspective.

DMD 2022 will gather maritime stakeholders from all parts of the industry, both domestic and international, who will share insights, create new relations and strengthen the cooperative spirit across the entire maritime sector. As always, stakeholders can prepare events as a part of DMD 2022- and we hope that the days will be filled with maritime activities across the country.

Danish Shipping, Danish Maritime and the Danish Maritime Authority are having the joint event Danish Maritime Forum – Being at the sharp end, which will take place at the Korsør Naval Base on the first two days of DMD; 4-5 October. During this event, we will focus on the challenges of the post-COVID era, how to manage the necessary green transition and regulatory challenges, as well as the role of Denmark in international maritime security and current security threats.

DMD is a biennial event. Two years ago it was held on a much smaller scale and virtually due to the pandemic, but this year we look forward to inviting the maritime industry to join us and to welcome everyone to both formal and informal physical events. Everything will begin with a welcoming reception, which will take place in Korsør.

Andreas Nordseth, Director General of the Danish Maritime Authority, says:

“The importance of shipping in relation to global supply chains has been especially prominent throughout the pandemic. Furthermore, the green transition of shipping has made its way to the top of the international political agenda – recently at COP26, where Denmark alongside the Unites States and 17 other countries placed climate neutral shipping at the center of attention. Meanwhile, the developments within autonomous shipping and other technological solutions are happening at an increasingly faster rate, and it is our duty to make sure that neither the green transition nor technological developments are hindered by outdated regulation. This, and much more, will be discussed at Danish Maritime Days 2022.”

Jenny Braat, CEO of Danish Maritime, adds:

“I hope that many of our international partners will have the opportunity to join us once again, so we can discuss the current possibilities, challenges and needs of the maritime world. The crisis has put on in a strange situation, which we now need to move on from. At the same time, we need to find solid, international solutions in regards to the green transition, the issue of energy and other big topics. DMD has a tradition for encompassing broad as well as narrow events, and I am looking forward to spending some good and inspiring days with our members and other parts of the industry.”

Anne H. Steffensen, Director General and CEO of Danish Shipping, finishes:

“There are several sharp turns ahead of the shipping industry, which need to be managed in coming years. The green transition is a huge challenge, but the safety of our people at sea in a world of increasing tension for different reasons, is also top of mind. That is why I am looking forward to gathering industry people and experts, both domestic and from abroad, to inspire one another with new knowledge and discuss how to create a joint solution and international support for the challenges we need to face in the coming years. With the unpredictable world we live in, it is therefore very appropriate to meet at the Naval Base in Korsør.”
