Birgit Liodden, the Director of Nor-Shipping, has decided to take some time away from the business due to personal reasons. Per Martin Tanggaard has taken on the role as acting Director of Nor-Shipping, the leading maritime event week.
The pair have worked together since 2015, with Tanggaard holding the role of Exhibition Director and overseeing organization of Nor-Shipping’s five exhibition halls and 900+ exhibitors in Lillestrøm, Norway.
This year’s event, which took place from 30 May to 2 June, and included a packed programme of business and social events in Oslo, welcomed exhibitors from some 48 countries, attracting 31,500 delegates through the doors at Norges Varemesse’s 21,000m2 complex.
“I am honoured to be chosen for this role at the head of a maritime event week that both represents the global industry, and helps drive its development,” he comments.
“The 2017 exhibition and activity programme was a huge success and I look forward to building on that, whilst retaining the key elements that have established Nor-Shipping’s leading position over the past 50-plus years. We know our audience well, and we’ll cater for them with the best quality exhibition and activities possible.”
Tangaard is a well-known face within the international maritime community, having worked with Wartsila Ship Design and Lorentzen & Stemoco, enjoying stints in both Singapore and his native Norway. He joined Norges Varemesse in March 2015.
Nor-Shipping 2019 takes place from 04 – 07 June. Alongside the exhibition of world class maritime companies it offers delegates a diverse speaker programme, an exciting array of social and business activities, and a unique meeting place for the global shipping community.
