The international maritime exhibition Danish Maritime Fair, which takes place in Copenhagen October 25th to 27th now reports all sold out. All conference rooms are booked, and finally the major networking dinner Wednesday night is also sold out.
It will be an exciting show this year. Substantial resources have been spent on developing the concept and on strengthening the unique profile of the Fair. Exhibition Manager Jakob Le Fevre says:
“In 2014, we had less than seven months to develop the fair. Selling the booths was about all we had time for. In 2015, we had the strategic partnerships in place, but we moved to a new location with logistical challenges and the timing was very unfortunate as Danish Maritime Days took place during the same week as Danfish in Aalborg. This year, we have had very good and constructive dialogues with both exhibitors and partners. We have listened to the feedback from the previous events and focus has been on the overall theme of the Fair: “It’s all about relations”. This means that we have created a structure that facilitates dialogue and communication and many relevant and exciting, professional and social, events. “
This year, the Fair presents 230 exhibitors, which is the highest number ever (find a complete list HERE)
Additionally, the Fair presents four national pavilions from Germany, Holland, Sweden and Finland, a Blue Career Lounge with 10 maritime educational institutions, Shipowners’ Lounge organized by the Danish Shipowners’ Association in cooperation with a wide range of Denmark’s largest shipowners and more than 30 events, workshops and conferences with Danish Maritime Technology Conference, organized by the Danish Maritime, as the Fair’s flagship. Participation in the Danish Maritime Technology Conference is free but requires prior registration (CLICK HERE)
Danish Maritime Fair has a large number of foreign exhibitors this year and this trend is also reflected in the visitor registrations. As many as 25% of the registered visitors (per 18-10-2016) are from abroad and by now, counting more than 50 different nationalities. Exhibition Manager Jakob Le Fevre elaborates, “We have studied all the individual registrations and I find them to be valid. We expect delegations from China, Hong Kong, India, Japan, Poland, Kenya, Singapore and the USA and we have increased the number significantly from those countries which organize pavilions. ”
The fair is open daily 09:00 to 17:00 and there are shuttle buses from Copenhagen Central Station (at DGI city) approximately every 20 minutes.
Visitor registration is open and the price is 150 kr. + VAT for accessing all three day. REGISTER HERE
