"I am proud that we have managed to gather a wide range of top people in the maritime industry to the Danish Maritime Days and Danish Maritime Forum. It shows that the Blue Denmark can lead the debate on the future challenges and I look forward to even more good discussions and events next year," says Andreas Nordseth, director of The Danish Maritime Authority.

The flagship of the Danish Maritime Days was the big international conference Danish Maritime Forum, which took place on 8 and 9 October at the dock in Copenhagen Harbor. Here it was possible to assemble the absolute elite in the maritime area for discussions and workshops on future maritime challenges.

Divided into small groups, top political leaders and directors came in their work clothes, got a magic marker in their hand and had to come up with concrete suggestions for a way forward - a format that many of the guests were unfamiliar, but was a great success.

As part of the Danish Maritime Days, the fair Danish Maritime Fair was held at the Bella Center, where more than 150 companies, including Thome Ship Management and AP Møller Maersk, were represented.

The Danish Maritime Authority was also present at the fair and held, among other Paper "Come Fly the DanishFlag," which focused on the beneficial Danish framework conditions and made it clear that it is not so difficult to sail with quality Danish flag.

The Danish Maritime Authority also focused on e-navigation, as many fair-goers were interested in learning more about. In addition, the Board even hosted a networking event where the future of e-navigation was discussed - meetings will continue to take place in the future.

In addition to the Danish Maritime Fair, Danish Maritime Days offered a wide variety of events. Aalborg University in participation with the Ange optimazation and Maersk Line participants the chance to play with Lego containers, M/S Museum of Maritime featured a Special openings and Danish Shipowners invited to the debate on corruption in the maritime industry - just to name a few of the many possibilities the days offered.

The Danish Maritime Authority held in collaboration with 3F, CO-SEA and the Danish Shipowners event "Conference on the Seafarer as part of Global Quality Shipping" and the Agency hosted an offshore arrangement in Esbjerg and open vessel Poul Løwenørn.

Danish Maritime Days has been a success for The Danish Maritime Authority and the Maritime Denmark as a whole, and it creates high expectations for next year's maritime days.
