Industry Relevance

Nor-Shipping has an incredible story to tell as the exhibition first started out as a small, local event meant to create a community among local seafarers and shine light on what they did on board their local ships. This was back at the start of the 1960s. Then Norwegian shipowner and magazine publisher Per Selvig rebranded and expanded the exhibition to be the international force that it is today! Editions take place every two years at Norges Varemesse in Lillestrøm. For convenience, the space is divided in six thematic halls – blue economy and tomorrow's business solutions today, IT & navigation, Safety & rescue, Shipbuilding & repair, Maritime services & logistics, and Propulsion & machinery. In between these halls, you see a detailed snapshot of the entire sector in one place.

It’s not an exaggeration to say that Nor-Shipping reflects trends in the entire world as the list of exhibitor countries covers all major regions – Europe, Asia, America, Africa and Middle East. In 2019, the countries with national pavilions include the USA and Canada, the UK, China, Italy, Finland, Denmark, the Netherlands, Germany, Japan, South Korea, Norway, Singapore, Turkey and Spain. As far as a breakdown of professions, you can expect ship owners and managers, shipyards, maritime organisations and port authorities. It’s also important to note that a portion of the exhibition will be open to members of the general public.
