About the Show

Since 1965, Nor-Shipping has been at the heart of oceans and sustainability. This biannual event is where the ocean industries meet with key decision makers from around the world to discuss trends, connect, collaborate and make deals that unlock new business opportunities. At Nor-Shipping, maritime, tech, finance and the wider business segments cross paths to learn from one another, forge partnerships and access new economic value creation.

The world is looking to the oceans! As populations increase, consumer activity and energy demands rise, people require new solutions from new arenas. Maritime is central to realizing the huge potential on, above and below the waves – driving trade, enabling new industries and keeping the business world turning. Nor-Shipping is an official participating company of the Action Platform for Sustainable Ocean Business.

The Nor-Shipping Exhibition consists of five spacious halls housing approximately 1,000 exhibitors from over 50 different nations. Thousands of maritime decision-makers will be in attendance with the purpose of networking, learning about the latest innovations and developments and securing business partners.

Nor-Shipping is unique as it brings the entire spectrum of ocean stakeholders together in one place, with a clear focus on innovation and achieving future goals. We’re tailoring the exhibition space and activity program to showcase and enable successful partnerships. A packed activity program awaits, with networking, knowledge sharing events, lively exhibition halls and all the very latest ocean and maritime developments and innovations distilled into one unmissable event.

Why the USA Partnership Pavilion

The shipping industry has a long tradition in the Nordic Countries and is crucial for their countless economic activities. The Nordic states are heavily dependent on sea transportation to import and export goods and commodities. Marine ports, in Sweden alone, handle about 90 percent of the country’s international trade, amounting to roughly 169 million metric tons.

In Norway, the shipping industry is one of the most important industries and is a significant contributor to value creation and employment in large parts of the country. Norway is the world’s fifth largest shipping nation contributing to the total value of the world fleet by an estimated 1.5 billion. The economic forecast for the shipping industry is positive with an increased demand for ships, increased activity in the logistics chain and easier access to capital. U.S. maritime technology and service suppliers have found the Norwegian market well worth exploring for exports and joint ventures for several reasons.

A major technology transfer is taking place, from offshore oil and gas to other maritime areas.  Developing an array of new applications based on world leading offshore energy solutions opens for companies to participate.  Offshore oil and gas technology is a foundation for many cutting-edge aquaculture and ocean farming projects, set up to deal with sustainability challenges such as sea lice, big waves, fish escapes, and pollution.  Norway is dependent on input in practically all parts of the maritime value chain, and U.S. companies have found themselves relevant and welcomed.

Zero emission maritime transport is generating opportunities for a growing eco system.  Short sea ship owners have already adopted new propulsion systems for many vessels on the coast, mainly using battery technology.  Most of the 200+ ferries will soon be emission free.  Concepts for autonomous shipping is being developed, or commissioned, such as “sea buses” but also unmanned container ships such as Yara Birkeland, already in operation.  Deep sea shipping is next, with several concepts under testing, including biogas, hydrogen, and most notably, ammonia. Development in these areas require input form many high-tech disciplines internationally.

The USA Partnership Pavilion at Nor Shipping builds on America's equity in Scandinavia and Kallman Worldwide's experience in this industry to help you meet more buyers, decision-makers and influencers.

In addition to our suite of end-to-end exhibitor services, the upcoming edition of the Pavilion will feature a new turnkey stand design and materials, a robust delegation program, close collaboration with in-country and regional U.S. Commercial Service representatives to facilitate business introductions and meetings, to celebrate the American presence with attending maritime professionals.

We look forward helping you reach your marketing goals in Norway this June.

"I’ve never received such great support at a show! International shows have their added challenges, and Kallman clearly knows how to adapt and take care of the booth teams in attendance. We’ve had numerous comments from the upper management on the great booth design. All agree the custom work you did was perfect in showcasing our products and services. Looking forward to working more shows together! Thank you to you and your team."
