Nor-Shipping announces that Vidar Pederstad has taken on the role of Nor-Shipping Director.

Although his career track includes a series of management positions at leading PR and communications agencies, Pederstad brings many years of Nor-Shipping experience to his new position. Not only was he a marketing and PR consultant to four Nor-Shipping event weeks over eight years, but he was also a founding member of the Nor-Shipping Advisory Board.

His key contributions during this period include the establishment of the high-profile Nor-Shipping conferences, which have greatly contributed to Nor-Shipping’s position as a world-class meeting place for the industry, and Nor-Shipping Campus, a valuable branding initiative for the Norwegian maritime industry.

“You could say that Nor-Shipping is ‘in my blood,’ after working so closely with it for so long, so it was a natural step to join the team,” said Pederstad.

Nor-Shipping veteran Tollef Schiander, who has now stepped into the key role of Exhibition Director, welcomed Pederstad onboard. Having put into place a strategic plan which points ahead six years, they are now already hard at work on Nor-Shipping 2013.
“It’s really motivating to have the challenge of making a world-class event even better. Expect some interesting developments for Nor-Shipping 2013,” says Pederstad.
