Nor-Shipping is a globally leading exhibition and event programme based in Norway. This is where the maritime and ocean industries meet to connect, collaborate and facilitate sustainable success in the ocean space.

Taking place every two years, Nor-Shipping operates as a hub for international decision makers from both the private and public spheres. This is where shipowners and operators mix with politicians, equipment suppliers, NGOs, innovators, investors, business leaders and a broad range of ocean stakeholders in a unique environment designed to enable deals, build relationships and spread knowledge.

In all more than 30,000 delegates, from over 75 nations, attend Nor-Shipping’s exhibition, conferences, seminars, executive meetings and social events. All are united by a desire to plot a successful and sustainable – both commercially and environmentally – pathway into the future.

Together we create an arena full of possibilities: A place to showcase innovation, excellence and business potential, and a collaborative platform to help realise it.

Nor-Shipping is Your Arena for Ocean Solutions.

Nor-Shipping 2017 in numbers

Nor-Shipping 2017, which took place across a series of venues in Oslo and Lillestrøm from 30 May to 2 June, held more events than ever (220), gathered a greater number of speakers than past programmes (150), and welcomed exhibitors from some 48 countries. Despite on-going tough market conditions, overall visitor numbers were maintained, with people from some 75 nations making the trip to Norway.


The Nor-Shipping Conference is a unique event attended by those that set the agendas, rather than following them. The world is looking to the ocean space to solve some of its most pressing challenges and requirements, but without the necessary leadership, its immense potential may never be realised.

The Conference examines the impact global changes have had on trade and infrastructure and how these changes have created risks and opportunities for shipping in the wider ocean industry. The Conference attracts business leaders, public figures, politicians and key ocean stakeholders by providing them with perspectives on leadership, competence and technology. Conference speakers and panellists will include global influencers, top executives and stakeholders representing the maritime and ocean industry.

Please contact Knut Erik Dahle for more information, ked@nor-shipping.com

Please use this link for criteria or see below: http://www.nor-shipping.com/next-generation-ship-award/

Application form: http://www.nor-shipping.com/nomination-form-shipping-next-generation-award/


Combining the two categories from previous years (Next Generation and Energy Efficiency Awards), the Next Generation Ship Award is open to vessels delivered since the 2017 Nor-Shipping Exhibition or scheduled for delivery within three years of the 2019 event.

The New Generation Ship Award is awarded to the ship project demonstrating the greatest advances and innovation in design. The design is assessed with respect to energy efficiency, innovation, suitability and flexibility, technology utilisation, safety and security and environmental sustainability.

Since innovative efficient designs often emerge through active collaboration between companies, collaborators may jointly apply.

The Jury will consider all aspects of each ship entered taking into account cost effectiveness / life cycle cost perspective of new and innovative features. With regard to sustainability, the impact on the environment will be considered as will vessel versatility ensuring employment under a wide range of market conditions. Where pioneering new technologies are incorporated into the design or construction of a ship, these will be assessed for their contribution to the overall efficiency of the vessel.

In recognition of the fact that ships are required to be commercially viable, all factors will be considered and no single factor will determine the winner. All ship types will be given equal consideration, regardless of size or segment.

Please contact Jury Chairman Malcolm Latarche for additional information.

Young Entrepreneur Award

Part of ongoing efforts to further develop Nor-Shipping as an arena for the next generation, the Young Entrepreneur Award was launched in 2013. Open to nominees in all industry segments, it honors an under 40-year-old professional who has founded a successful company that addresses challenges or solutions in a new way.

Nor-Shipping er en av verdens viktigste møteplasser for shippingbransjen spesielt og maritim næring generelt. Nor-Shipping ble etablert i 1965 og samler annet hvert år over 30.000 delegater fra mer enn 75 land i Oslo og på Norges Varemesse.

Nor-Shipping er “Your Arena for Ocean Solutions” og vårt mandat er å bidra til å identifisere bærekraftige forretningsmuligheter for martitim næring i havrommet. Vi er en arena for maritim kompetanse, digitalisering og verdifulle nettverk, hvor det løftes frem lønnsomme, bærekraftige løsninger som tar maritim næring, havnæringene – og verden – videre.

Nor-Shipping’s 21,000 kvadratmeter utstillingsområde på Norges Varemesse på Lillestrøm er selve hjertet i Nor-Shipping. Her kan besøkende få innsikt i de siste trendene, teknologiske løsningene og rammeverket for shipping og de globale havnæringene.

Nor-Shippings satsninger er basert på FNs Bærekrafts mål og maritim nærings sentrale rolle i å bidra til realisering av disse målene. Næringen trenger sunne hav å operere i – og det er et stort forretningspotensial i teknologi og forretningsmodeller som kan åpne helt nye inntjeningsmuligheter.

Nor-Shipping 2019 vil sette fokus på dette gjennom tiltak som «Ocean Solutions Festival» i Oslo, som inviterer unge til å bli med i jakten på fremtidens løsninger, samt satsningen «Blue Economy” hvor vi løfter frem aktører og løsninger som praktiserer bærekraftig vekst i havrommet.

Åpning av Nor-Shipping i Rådhuset

Offisiell åpning av Nor-Shipping med gjester fra nasjonalt og internasjonalt næringsliv, samarbeidspartnere, regjering og kommune, utvalgte gründere, foredragsholdere og ambassadører. Programmet vil bestå av taler, underholdning og to prisutdelinger: Next Generation Ship Award og Young Entrepreneur Award

Nor-Shipping konferansen

The Nor-Shipping Conference – Ocean Leadership – Der ledende internasjonale figurer fra shipping, havrommet, politikk, næringsliv, økonomi og gründere står på scenen og er i salen. Konferansen feirer suksesser, skisserer utfordringer og bidrar til å sette kursen for bærekraftig utvikling av den maritime industrien. Globale visjonærer deler sine tanker om noen av dagens og morgendagens muligheter.

Blue Economy

Nor-Shippings spydspiss-event, hvor vi samler utstillere i en konsept-hall, som eksemplifiserer det nye mulighetsrommet innenfor Blue Economy. Med fokus på maritime muligheter vil hallen vise frem løsninger som støtter FNs bærekraftsmål, og samtidig åpner for nye forretningsmuligheter i den blå økonomien.  Her vil det også være en åpen scene, hvor vi gjennom key notes, intervjuer og panelsesjoner, og med en moderator som er ekspert på området, gir publikum en dypere innsikt i muligheter og inspirasjon til positiv forandring i industrien. I denne hallen vil det også være en startup Lounge, med tjue oppstartsvirksomheter som stiller ut.  Det er også satt opp en tenketank, hvor industriekspertise diskuterer løsninger innenfor den blå økonomien med tilstedeværende publikum.

Ocean Now- Ocean Solutions

Løsningsfestival for og med gründer- og innovasjonsmiljøet

Nor-Shipping vil med Ocean Solutions Festival sette fokus på de unge og gi utviklermiljøer innen havrommet en sterk synlighetskanal. Gjennom festivalen skal unge og utviklermiljøer jobbe med reelle problemstillinger og sammen skal vi inspirere til bærekraftige havromsløsninger. Synlighet for eksisterende eller kommende start-up selskaper og det å inspirere nye start-ups vil også være en viktig del av festivalen. Hvis vi skal inspirere en ny generasjon til å jobbe innenfor et bærekraftig havrom, må vi vise at vi tar de på alvor og gi de verktøyene de trenger for å lykkes. Festivalen utvikles i samarbeid med de fremste havromsinkubatorene i landet, på de unges premisser.
