During SMM in Hamburg 3 – 6 September, we are hosting and co-hosting several events in the Team Norway pavilion as well as at other locations. Below follows an overview of what is happening during the week.

Tuesday 3 September

14.30 Ship of the Year Award Ceremony

Join us for the Ship of The Year Award ceremony on Tuesday 3 September at 14.30 by Saint Gobain Marine’s stand in the pavilion – stand number B7.200. Refreshments will be served.

The Ship of the Year is a prestigious and important award for the maritime industry, especially for the shipbuilding and the supplier industry. The award is instituted by Skipsrevyen, a major Norwegian maritime magazine. The Ship of the Year Award and Norwegian Maritime Exporters have a long-term collaboration. For us it is a great honour to host the award ceremony at SMM and Nor-Shipping every other year.

You are welcome to join us in honouring all nominees and congratulating the award winner!
