Pushing the boundaries of maritime innovation
The world is looking to the oceans and a new generation of ocean explorers are emerging. Students, young professionals and a growing global start-up community are pushing the boundaries of maritime innovation. They will play a major role in advancing ocean sustainable development, but they do not get the attention they deserve.
Connecting talent with opportunity
Nor-Shipping gather more than 30.000 maritime and ocean industry professionals. This makes Nor-Shipping a natural hub for key decision makers from across the world to connect, collaborate and do deals to unlock new business opportunity. By creating a meeting place where maritime professionals can connect, engage and collaborate with the next generation of industry talent, these new explorers will get a platform helping them to enable sustainable ocean solutions and create business opportunity.
Powerful arena for new business opportunities
This will be a powerful arena tailored to build bridges between new businesses, opportunities and those just starting out on their careers, and established maritime leaders from Norway and beyond. We will engage the best young minds. Supporting, promoting and enabling new business, ocean solutions and innovation, to help unlock potential in a responsible, sustainable and profitable manner.
This is where tomorrow meets today and the future begins.
