The Nor-Shipping conference and exhibition is set to be one most important meeting places for companies from the maritime, shipping and associated oil and gas value chains. More than 40 seminars and conferences are held during Nor-Shipping. Since 2015 two additional events are complementing the event calendar: the offshore maritime segment and the Ocean Industry Podium.
