The home of innovation
Nor-Shipping is where cutting edge Norwegian and international companies showcase the innovations that deliver competitive advantage for their customers – driving new efficiencies, improving processes and enhancing performance. This is the place where the maritime, tech, finance and wider business segments cross paths to learn from one another, forge partnerships, and access new economic value creation.

Exhibiting excellence
Nor-Shipping’s 22,500 square metre exhibition space is the beating heart of the week’s activity. This is where delegates and visitors can experience the products, services and companies that will help drive a new age of ocean industry development.

Each of our five halls has a theme to help visitors navigate efficiently and access the exhibitors that best suit their individual business needs. Hall T focuses on the blue economy and “tomorrow’s business solutions today”, with IT & Navigation in Hall B, Safety & Rescue in Hall C, Shipbuilding & Repair in Hall D, Maritime Services & Logistics in Hall E, and Propulsion & Machinery in Hall E. In addition, national pavilions provide portals into the expertise on offer in countries around the world.

It is a dynamic festival of talented people and innovative products – designed to help you deliver on your ocean industry ambitions.

Many of our international exhibitors choose to be located in their country’s national pavilion.
