The chief executives of technology company Kongsberg and classification society DNV GL are the latest names to sign up for Nor-Shipping’s new Ocean Leadership Conference on 4 June.

The event, traditionally seen as the week’s opening conference, will this year focus on analysing, defining and enabling ocean industry leadership for a new era of business opportunity.

“This year we’ve really focused on attracting a broad range of global leaders, from a diverse array of business, political, academic and regulatory backgrounds to deliver valuable takeaways right across the board,” said Nor-Shipping director, Per Martin Tanggaard.

“We believe the industry is standing on the brink of a new age of commercial ocean activity – one that can provide immense opportunity for our traditional maritime audience,” he added.

Kongsberg’s Geir Håøy and DNV GL’s Remi Eriksen join speakers and contributors including Admiral Michael Rogers, the former director of the National Security Agency, Nobel Laureate (Economics) prize winner Paul M. Romer, IMO secretary general Kitack Lim, Ann-Kristin Andersen, TechnipFMC’s chief digital officer, and Norwegian prime minister Erna Solberg.

The two executives will take part in an onstage debate with Lise Kingo, executive director of the United Nations Global Compact, examining how shipowners, financial institutions, equipment suppliers and cargo owners can work together to take advantage of sustainable, profitable opportunities.

Nor-Shipping 2019 will be held on 4 – 7 June across a series of venues in Oslo and Lillestrøm in Norway.
