The maritime trade show, Nor-Shipping, has been postponed to January 10th to 13th 2022. Orginally scheduled to be held in the first week of June this year, the organisers have now decided to move the dates of the show due to the corona pandemic. The decision has been taken in consultation with all Nor-Shipping partners and a number of exhibitors, who supported a move to enable greater contact and connection.
“Nor-Shipping is renowned as the global gathering point for ocean stakeholders,” said Nor-Shipping director Per Martin Tanggaard. “A place where they can meet in person, connect, share knowledge, build relationships, and really enable the strategies to unlock sustainable success in the ocean space. 2019 demonstrated that appeal, and it was our plan to build on that in 2021, giving this unique community even more support, even more value, and even more success. It’s now become clear we can’t deliver on that ambition.”
“Health and safety comes first,” Nor-Shipping director Karen Algaard added. “We are committed to following stringent standards with regards to minimising the risk of infection, and, at present, that means fewer people, less interaction and more distance between exhibitors and participants. We believe that isn’t in keeping with the essence of Nor-Shipping. However, by delaying the programme a little we can offer everything we have become known for, and more, with a uniquely Norwegian flavour in January 2022. It gives us and, we hope, the entire industry something very special to look forward to.”
