The Danish Maritime Fair 2018

Do you want to be part of a success?

07 February 2018

Wednesday May 2, the fourth edition of the international maritime exhibition - the Danish Maritime Fair - will start at the exhibition centre Lokomotivværkstedet in Copenhagen. Up to 5,000 visitors are expected, not only people from Scandinavia but from all over the maritime world. The 2018 Fair has been expanded compared to the last Fair in 2016, and already now the area sold is 20 percent higher than in 2016. But there are still some attractive exhibition stands available for those who have not yet purchased one. Alongside the 3-day long Fair, an extensive maritime conference and meeting program take place at Lokomotivværkstedet.

The Danish Maritime Fair 2018 is a unique opportunity for companies to showcase their products and competences to purchase strong visitors. Many of the visitors hold management positions in the 120 shipping companies who are expected to attend the exhibition again this year.

The clarity of the exhibition makes it possible for exhibitioners to concentrate on the most important visitors, and in addition to this, our newly developed Partnercare Program will help exhibitors to get in contact with the right visitors.

The rustic facilities and the exclusive Networking Dinner will ensure great opportunities for networking and for maintaining and expanding contacts in all fields of the maritime industry, including representatives from major organizations and key authorities.

It is still possible to book an exhibition stand for your company at the fair. This can be done by contacting and by telephone +45 7020 4155

There will also be free access to lounge areas where visitors alongside exhibitioners are able to relax, meet or study some of the many maritime publications distributed at the Fair.

The last edition of the Danish Maritime Fair, which was held in October 2016, was attended by more than 4,600 visitors, of which more than every 10th person was either company owner or top manager. 120 shipping companies chose to send one or more employees to the fair. Every fourth visitor came from abroad, and 71 countries from all over the world were represented at the exhibition.
