About Africa @ Nor-Shipping

Nor-Shipping is the leading maritime event week. Its top-quality exhibition, high-level conferences and prime networking opportunities attract the international maritime industry to Oslo on a bi-annual basis. For more than 50 years and with visitors from around 80 countries, Nor-Shipping has provided a platform for the global shipping maritime industries to explore the future.

Following-up on a successful first-outing in 2017, Africa @ Nor-Shipping 2019 will provide an ideal platform for exploring new opportunities and partnerships between Africa and Norway in the shipping and maritime sectors, and for matching Norway’s ocean industries expertise with the enormous growth potential and forward leaning business climate of the African continent.

Connecting African and Nordic Maritime Spaces

African economies are growing and becoming more connected to the world economy than ever before. Still, many Nordic and international companies are yet to discover the excellent business opportunities on offer in Africa. Norway is host to a world-leading maritime and ocean industry cluster featuring cutting edge innovation, technology, competence and commercial solutions and is a spearhead in implementing greener and more sustainable business practices in the global ocean and maritime industries. In 2019, Nor-Shipping, which is one of the world’s leading maritime events, will again put Africa squarely on the agenda, in order to promote mutually beneficial linkages and exchanges between the African and Nordic Maritime sectors.

Organizing Partners

The basis for the Africa @ Nor-Shipping program in 2019 is an agreement between Nor-Shipping and three influential organizations: The Norwegian-African Business Association (NABA), AO Energy Consulting (AOEC), and the African Shipowners Association (ASA). Under this agreement, NABA, AOEC and ASA will partner with Norway Trade Fairs/Nor-Shipping in order to: “support and facilitate more business activity and improved business relations between the maritime and ocean industries in the Nordic countries and the African region, leading up to and during Nor-Shipping 2019”.
