Four themes at this year’s Danish Maritime Days will highlight some of the most important challenges and opportunities which the global maritime industry is facing, organizers said.
Open markets, innovation, sustainability as well as security and safety will be high on the agenda when the global maritime industry comes together for Danish Maritime Days, October 24-28. Decided in close collaboration with the independent organizers in the open platform, the topics will form the thematic framework of the maritime week.
“Danish Maritime Days aims to set a global agenda which makes a real difference and is relevant to an international audience. For example, it will have major consequences for the entire maritime industry if countries and regions begin to close more in on themselves,” said Michael Soested, Head of Secretariat at Danish Maritime Days, with a reference to the theme open markets.
The calendar of events for Danish Maritime Days already counts more than 30 independent events. A review of the many events shows that there will be something for everyone who is involved in the maritime industry.
“The calendar of events includes everything from how innovation can create significant reductions in CO2 emissions, to trade in Africa
, and how security information creates value for the shipping industry,” Søsted said.
