The maritime industry is a people business, and we may deal with technology, services, and solutions but it´s the human interaction that drives the success. Nor-Shipping events provides unique experiences, and it is a great arena to connect and get updated, meet the right people, and make profitable relations.


AfterWork@AkerBrygge is free for all participants and the networking area and the social hub where the industry gathers to mingle every evening. The new Nor-Shipping After Work main venue is Lekter`n. It is Oslo`s largest open-air restaurant located on the water along the quayside opposite Restaurant Louise on the Aker Brygge promenade. Lekter´n will be accessible for all Nor-Shipping delegates with available food, drinks and plenty of entertainment.

Since 1989, Nor-Shipping has hosted the BBQ party which was initially a relatively small, intimate affair but which has grown to become a sold-out highlight of Nor-Shipping week with around 2,500 participants.
We welcome you to an upgraded, better and developed BBQ on Tuesday June 3 at the spectacular grounds of DNV’s head office at Høvik, just outside Oslo.
