NorShipping Logs Successful Week

Wednesday, June 20, 2007
Nor-Shipping recorded its most successful year ever, in terms of exhibitors, visitors and events. "As a source of strategic inspiration and professional opinion, Nor-Shipping this year was truly seen by the market as an opportunity to join the leaders," said Tollef Schiander, director for Nor-Shipping on behalf of its organiser Norway Trade Fairs.

Nor-Shipping had 13,745 professional visitors during the 4-day event. 828 exhibitors from 42 countries brought 6,685 representatives to Nor-Shipping 2007, adding the total number of official delegates to well over 20,000. Given the wide variety of social and professional arrangements happening in parallel throughout the Oslo region, the leading maritime event week's numbers rise to probably more than 25,000. The Nor-Shipping barbeque party in the Veritas park on the first day of Nor-Shipping, with a total of 2,500 guests, was as always a highly popular event.

Alongside the commercial dynamics taking place on the exhibition floor, Nor-Shipping 2007 featured its most impressive program of conferences and professional events ever. The opening conference, with its arctic shipping focus, explored multiple facets related to future maritime activities in polar areas. Other leading voices conferences brought influential opinions from industry leaders out into the open. "The combination of a strong shipping market with value-added events for new strategic inputs and ideas had a powerful impact on Nor-Shipping this year. The leading voices concept continues to grow and evolve, and Nor-Shipping 2009 will surely feature even more valuable conferences and ideas," said Schiander. New elements at Nor-Shipping 2007 included the Nor-Shipping regatta on Monday 11 June, the Nor-Shipping Port Club at Aker Brygge and Nor-Shipping TV on the Nor-Shipping, TradeWinds and Dagens Næringsliv web-sites. Each of these gathered a large number of visitors and participants, ensuring repeat performances in 2009.
