According to Danish Shipping (The association of Danish Shipowners), the Danish fleet is growing in leaps and bounds. Between April 2017 and April 2018, the Danish flagged merchant fleet has grown by 25 pct. in size. This corresponds to a growth in gross tonnage by 3.8 million GT in just one year – the largest leap ever for the Danish fleet. By April 2018, 703 ships fly the Danish flag.
More than half of these are offshore vessels and specialized vessels - but measured in gross tonnage, the container segment by far accounts for the largest part of the fleet.
In just one year, Denmark has advanced from number eight to number six on the global list of operator nations. Denmark is now ahead of both Germany and South Korea – and only 1.5 million GT away from the global top five.
TOP TEN OPERATOR NATIONS (GT)
8. South Korea
9. Hong Kong
With this in mind, it only seems natural that Denmark position itself with a recurring event that facilities networking and business between the Danish maritime cluster and the global maritime business.
CPH Shipping Summit, will not try to be another Nor-Shipping, Europort or SMM. The vision is to introduce an innovative approach to the traditional trade fair concept, with less cost for participating companies, both in terms of money and resources and strong focus on the conferences and networking opportunities.
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 first day will be followed by an Executive Dinner in the H C Andersen castle in Tivoli.
The Summit will present several conferences, based on the main themes, that will be revealed later.
