Danish Maritime Fair reaches 100 exhibitors
Despite the summer heat, interest in purchasing a booth at Denmark's new major maritime exhibition - Danish Maritime Fair - remains high. The number of registered companies and organizations has just passed 100. More and more foreign companies are also choosing to represent themselves.
"Although the show is primarily intended as a showcase for Danish companies, the interest from foreign companies to participate is far bigger than we had expected," says Jacob Le Fevre who is responsible for the sale of the fair.
"In addition to the Danish exhibitors we have now sold stocks to companies from Sweden, Norway, Iceland, Finland, Germany, Netherlands, UK, USA, Singapore, Japan, Switzerland, France, Greece and Japan. I think that's impressive, "says Jacob Le Fevre.
But most of the exhibiting companies are still Danish. Market-leading companies such as MAN Diesel & Turbo, Wärtsilä, ABB, Hempel, Lyngsø Marine, Navteam, Furono, Bureau Veritas, Codan, Marsh, Skuld, Pres-Vac, Vestergård Group, PJ Diesel, Viking Life Saving Equipment, Atlas Incinerator, and Ironpump have all announced their arrival.
"Unlike many international fairs, in Copenhagen it is not only equipment manufacturers who are represented. At the Danish Maritime Fair we have exhibitors from all parts of the Blue Denmark - organizations like the Danish Shipowners 'Maritime Officers, Engineers' Association, Ministry of Foreign Affairs, IDK, Oil Gas Denmark, Danish Ports, Danish Shipbrokers Association of Danish Industry, Ministry of Foreign Affairs, Trade Seamen, MS Museum of Maritime and Ulykkesforsikingsforbundet for Danish Maritime have all chosen to participate. The same applies to educational institutions such as SIMAC, University of Aarhus School, Aalborg School of Engineering and the Copenhagen School of Engineering, "says Jacob Le Fevre.
The latest addition is the oil and gas sector which will get its own section at the exhibition after the signing of a partnership agreement with the trade association Oil Gas Denmark. The organization represents 63 companies which are all active in the Danish offshore sector.
