Danish Maritime Forum 2015 in maritime surroundings

The new cruise terminals at North Harbor provide the innovative setting when global key leaders meet for the Danish Maritime Forum on 7-8 October.

With just five meters to the blue waves of Oresund the World’s maritime key leaders will feel at home when they participate in the Danish Maritime Forum 2015. And if they get the time to take a glance out of the windows, they will be greeted by the view of the Copenhagen skyline, the Three Crowns Sea Fortress and an offshore wind farm. It is the cruise terminals at North Harbour that were inaugurated in May last year that will provide the innovative setting when global key leaders, policymakers, experts and other influential decision-makers and opinion shapers meet at this year’s maritime summit on 7 – 8 October.

“The Danish Maritime Forum will challenge and inspire global key leaders to come up with new ideas and solutions to some of the most important challenges that the global maritime industry is facing. This requires a unique setting that we have found in The Terminals at the new cruise quay at North Harbor,” says Michael Soested, Head of Secretariat of Danish Maritime Days and the organizer behind the Danish Maritime Forum.

During summer The Terminals are the center of the large number of cruise ships that every year dock in Copenhagen. Moreover, the architects have designed the premises so that they can accommodate events with specific requirements such as the Danish Maritime Forum.

“The Terminals provide us with a unique opportunity to create a space where participants firstly can collaborate and exchange ideas and secondly can be inspired by the discussions on the main stage. At the same time The Terminals’ maritime distinctiveness is ideal for the purpose,” says Michael Soested.

Danish Maritime Forum is part of Danish Maritime Days which will take place from 5-9 October.

Danish Maritime Days is a public-private partnership between Danish Maritime, the Danish Maritime Authority and the Danish Shipowners’ Association and  supported by the Danish Maritime Fund, D/S Orients Fond // D/S NORDEN, the Hempel Foundation, the Lauritzen Foundation, the Ministry of Business and Growth and the Torm Foundation
