Nor-Shipping to postpone January 2022 event

Share this post with your friends

In the face of increasing coronavirus infection rates, driven by the Omicron mutation, Nor-Shipping has taken the decision to postpone its upcoming exhibition and event programme.

The management team is currently working with stakeholders to decide on the optimal way forward, with an announcement on the timing of the next Nor-Shipping expected before the end of this week.

Scheduled to take place from 10-13 January, Your Arena for Ocean Solutions normally gathers up to 50,000 international decision makers in Oslo and Lillestrøm, Norway, with around 900 exhibiting companies. Director Sidsel Norvik says the time has come to make “a responsible decision”, even though current national restrictions allow for large-scale exhibitions.

To serve and support

“In a very fluid pandemic situation, with rapidly rising infection rates here in Norway and elsewhere, we believe the time has come to postpone our January programme and try and create some clarity for our exhibitors and participants,” Norvik comments.

“With that in mind, we will be spending the coming days carefully assessing the situation and planning the best route forwards. Our job is to serve and support this great business community, and we’re committed to doing so in a safe, responsible and considered manner. We’d like to ask everyone for their patience at present, and will return with a final decision on the next Nor-Shipping this week. Thank you all for your continued understanding and support.”

Close collaboration

Nor-Shipping and its owners NOVA Spektrum are in constant dialogue with a variety of stakeholders – from local authorities, to exhibitors, partners, and delegates – to keep abreast of developments and industry sentiment.

The exhibition and activity programme encompasses the entire spectrum of ocean businesses, with a key focus on showcasing and enabling the innovations, ideas and partnerships capable of driving sustainable industry success.
