About the event

Covid-19 Update

Nor-Shipping 2023 will take place as a live exhibition between 06.06.2023 - 09.06.2023. The event will be held at the NOVA Spektrum. Currently, Norway does not have travel restrictions or event venue safety measures pertaining to Covid-19.

Calling Card 

Norway has become a natural centre for the maritime industry in Europe and Nor-Shipping has a stellar reputation for innovations, policy and sales around the world. The international exhibition is based in Lillestrøm, Norway and operates out of Norges Varemesse/NOVA Spektrum. Editions are held every two years and programming runs for four days, which gives government officials, the general public and professionals to network and conduct business. Nor-Shipping usually arrives in early June on odd years and is always the biggest meeting point for the big players on the scene. It’s where you are able to meet buyers with the right budgets and also gain a deeper understanding of new trends. Groundbreaking technologies and developments in the maritime industry are usually broken here first than anywhere else. 

Business Profile 

Nor-Shipping showcases the very best alongside the entire value chain and the exhibition space is divided into easy-to-navigate thematic halls. Product groups are organised in IT & navigation, blue economy & tomorrow's business solutions today, propulsion & machinery, shipbuilding & repair, safety & rescue, and maritime services & logistics. Fengshun Marine Service, Hi Air Korea, Helsinki Shipyard, HAT-SAN SHIPYARD and SRC Group are some examples of the exhibitors that showcase at Nor-Shipping. Visitors come from all over the world. You have the mainstays like Norway, Sweden and Finland, but also USA and Canada, China and South Korea. Exhibitors can hope to meet with professionals from all over the industry – ship owners and managers, shipyards, maritime organisations and port authorities. The general public has also shown interest in the exhibition. 

Did You Know? 

The maritime industry is well aware of the impact they pose on the environment, so sustainability has become a chief goal for organisers. Nor-Shipping is making concentrated efforts to inspire a more responsible ocean development and they do this by supporting UN Sustainable Development Goals. One of the most important events in the exhibition’s programme is The Ocean Leadership Conference, because it invites top experts to discuss the ways in which the industry has to change in the near future in order to survive. Exhibitors can spark conversations about innovation and the best possible practices at the Technical Seminars. Other events worth checking out include the Blue Talks and the Nor-Shipping Awards.
