A vibrant and intimate bay forms the Festival Street of Nor-Shipping Island, creating a melting pot for social networking throughout the week. We welcome you to experience the open and social atmosphere that characterize our maritime community and clusters.
Festival Street is open for all official delegates, and is our way to honor and celebrate the thousands of people who man the exhibition stands throughout the week. With no entrance fee for official delegates, special Nor-Shipping prices on selected items and a low-key atmosphere, you will not need a special invitation to enjoy the conversations and entertainment of this social hub.
Nor-Shipping Island offers a prime city center location within easy walking
within easy walking distance distance of anywhere in central Oslo.
Tjuvholmen is known for its contemporary architecture, high-quality restaurants and art and now also its brand new design hotel, The Thief. The popular Aker Brygge wharf area is also right at its doorstep.
PACKAGE DEALS & PLANNING
Our venue partners will offer various packages of wining, dining and additional elements you should require to set the right atmosphere and touch to your event. In addition to the land-based venues, there will be a number of yachts and day-cruisers of various sizes available for full- or part-day chartering alongside the Festival Street.
We know how busy our partners & exhibitors are prior to Nor-Shipping, and aim to enable you to enjoy the facilities of a professionally organized festive area, at the same time reducing costs and workload associated with your client events.
