Headline names set to appear at Nor-Shipping’s Ocean Leadership Conference on 4 June will include9 IMO Secretary General Kitack Lim, Norwegian Prime Minister Erna Solberg, Lise Kingo, CEO of the UN Global Compact, Ann-Christin Andersen, TechnipFMC’s Chief Digital Officer, and technologist Ramez Naam, Chair of Energy & Environmental Systems at Singularity University.

Nor-Shipping 2019, taking place from 4 to 7 June in Lillestrøm and Oslo, Norway, has refined its traditional opening conference to engage with, communicate to and outline the visions of true leaders within the maritime, ocean and public arenas.

Director Per Martin Tanggaard (pictured) said: “The Ocean Leadership Conference marks a declaration of intent. Nor-Shipping has committed itself to supporting maritime and enabling our industry to claim a leading, profitable and sustainable position in the evolving ocean space. This conference will gather the people and organisations – both on stage and in the audience – that will help make that objective a reality. Together they will map global trends, deliver insights on business opportunities, and discuss the solutions that will help us all balance commercial success with environmental responsibility. We have many more exciting names to come in the following weeks, ensuring that this gathering of great minds will deliver powerful takeaways, insight and value for those in attendance, and for our industry as a whole.”

The conference will follow an international meeting in Oslo to help develop the UN Global Compact’s Sustainable Ocean Business Action Platform.

In addition to the opening conference, Nor-Shipping will offer a programme of panel debates, round table discussions, presentations and think tank talks. These will be held within the exhibition arena at Lillestrøm and at venues across Oslo.

Nor-Shipping 2019 is expected to attract over 30,000 key decision makers, with around 1000 exhibiting companies, in a 21,000m2 exhibition space.
