AUGUST 10, 2016 — "Danish Maritime Days 2016 will reflect the great changes that the global maritime industry is undergoing. This includes everything from the industry's ambition to reduce CO2 emissions to the slowdown in world trade. We have high expectations for the program and look forward to welcoming participants from all over the world," says Michael Søsted, Head of Secretariat at Danish Maritime Days, which this year takes place October 24-28.More than 30 events will address some of the main challenges and opportunities facing the global maritime industry. Topics to be discussed include new solutions to climate and environmental challenges, safety and security and developments in the world economy.
Danish Maritime Days is an open platform and organizations are invited to plan independent events as part of the maritime week. The calendar of events already includes more than 30 professional and social events. Michael Søsted expects that more will be added before the September 1 deadline for new entries.
"Danish Maritime Days is a great opportunity for organizations to put the industry's global challenges and opportunities on the agenda. We hope that the many discussions will help to create a positive change to the benefit of the industry and human wellbeing," Mr Søsted concludes.
