Nor-Shipping BBQ

Business can also be pleasure. At the Nor-Shipping BBQ on Tuesday 6th June, Norway’s biggest garden party, fine food, drinks and (hopefully) weather fuel a unique networking opportunity for prime movers within the maritime and ocean industry segments.

This is the one place where shipowners, finance chiefs, politicians, industry leaders, tech pioneers and other key decision makers from around the world rub shoulders and relax in an informal, friendly, yet still business-conducive environment. But be warned, tickets are always in demand.

Since 1989, Nor Shipping has hosted the BBQ party during the exhibition. Initially a relatively small, intimate affair, it has grown to become a sold-out highlight of Nor-Shipping Week, with around 2,500 in attendance. And finally after 4 long years we are incredibly excited to welcome you again and still following the tradition, it will be hosted on the grounds of DNV GL headquarters in Høvik, just outside Oslo.

Well known as an excellent networking opportunity, the event attracts top people from every segment of the industry – from executives to journalists, exhibitors to politicians – for a casual, outdoors “serve-yourself” dinner.

The guests mix and mingle as they are treated to tasty food and drink in a relaxed, social setting. Nor-Shipping veterans and first timers alike can easily make and renew contacts and the 2023 event will be no exception. 

According to the event’s caterers, the Nor-Shipping BBQ is the largest event of its kind in Norway. Twenty cooks prepare about 2,000 kilos of food, including grilled meats and vegetables, seafood, cold cuts and a selection of desserts, while 25 waiters will serve some 1,000 bottles of wine and 2,500 glasses of beer.
