In June, Hydrex and Subsea Industries took part in Nor-Shipping, together with our agent for Norway, GearConsult AS. The exhibition was a very successful one for everyone involved and we are already looking forward to the next edition.
According to the exhibition’s post event press release, initial analysis shows a total of 30,000 entries into the exhibition halls, where visitors were introduced to around 892 exhibiting companies, and total participant numbers of over 50,000, including those at conferences, networking events and official social gatherings. These figures do not include those attending the huge array of partner and exhibitor events in Oslo.
Nor-Shipping 2023 proved to be one of those “you had to be there” moments. From the second the bell rang at Oslo Stock Exchange on Monday morning, announcing the beginning of this year’s packed program, through to the final delegates leaving the Lillestrøm Exhibition Center on Friday afternoon, this year’s Nor-Shipping delivered on every expectation.
Sidsel Norvik, Director of Nor-Shipping said: “It’s been an unforgettable week. The numbers speak for themselves, but what you can’t quantify is the incredible enthusiasm and sense of opportunity – the real desire to connect and do business – that defined the whole week. It’s been a joy to watch so many diverse industry stakeholders, from all around the world, seizing this chance to learn from, partner with and inspire one another.”
Hydrex Head of Technical Services, Timo Verhoegstraete was present during the entire event. He told us that he had many networking opportunities throughout the exhibition and that the GearConsult booth was bustling with activity from start to finish. “Nor-Shipping 2023 was a great success for us. I met many interesting people from the shipping industry,” said Timo. “We reinforced existing relationships while new business opportunities presented themselves.”
We would like to thank all of you who visited us there for coming and look forward to working with you on an ongoing basis. We would also like to invite you to come and visit us during Europort 2023 at the Holland Pavilion in Hall 1, booth 1225.
