Copenhagen Shipping Summit – a new maritime Summit and Exhibition in Copenhagen reports nearly 10% exhibition stands booked in less than one week.
Exhibition Director, Shipping Summit Ltd. Jesper Åndahl elaborates: "The world is full of maritime events and the question one can rightfully ask is, why should another maritime Summit and Exhibition be introduced? Well, we have something that other shows don´t have. The worlds largest shipping conglomerate less than 10 min. away from the venue, not to mention shipowners like Torm, Norden, J. Lauritzen, Svitzer, Clipper Group, Nordic Tankers, DFDS, Scanlines, Ultraship and many more. We have just been to SMM in Hamburg and according to several sources in the Danish Pavilion, only few Danish shipowner representatives attended the fair. We believe that placing an event just next to where the Shipowner representatives work - and feature world class conference organisers like BIMCO, will attract the shipowner representatives."
The vision of CPH Shipping Summit, is to introduce a new innovative approach to the traditional trade fair concept, with strong focus on the conferences and the networking opportunities and with less cost for participating companies, both in terms of money and resources.
The Summit will be hosted in the historic venue The Øksne Hall in down town Copenhagen, in 2 full days
10-11th April, 2019.
The conferences and the exhibition both takes place in the 5.000 m2 hall that the Øksne hall contains,
resulting in close interaction between the delegates and the exhibitors. There are 3 big conference rooms,
which during the Summit will be full of activities for the benefit of everyone involved.
Target audience is the maritime business in broad terms, but both exhibitors and conference organisers
will focus on the themes for the summit.
The first day will be followed by an Executive Dinner for 350 delegates in the H C Andersen castle in Tivoli.
The official summit hotel is the brand new Scandic Hotel in the meat packing district – just 5 mins walk
from the venue.
