The technological maritime summit during Danish Maritime Days in early May, Danish Maritime Technology Conference, will again this year host H.R.H. Prince Joachim as the main speaker.

“We are pleased that Prince Joachim will speak at the conference for the third time. His speech has drawn a lot of positive attention before, and the Prince’s commitment means a lot for Danish maritime companies; it is a clear sign to customers and collaborators that the maritime industry is an important industry in Denmark with great national awareness,” says Jenny N. Braat, Managing Director, Danish Maritime.

This year, the Danish Maritime Technology Conference will focus on innovative maritime technologies. The key topics are autonomous systems and digitization, technologies that can ensure a greener and more energy efficient future for shipping, and new areas of blue growth.

The Danish Maritime Technology Conference is held at The Train Workshop (Lokomotivværkstedet) in Copenhagen with support from the Danish Maritime Fund. Both in 2015 and 2016, Prince Joachim spoke at the Danish Maritime Technology Conference and subsequently visited several maritime companies at the Danish Maritime Fair, which also took place at The Train Workshop during Danish Maritime Days.
