An important element of Danish Maritime Days is the Danish Maritime Forum, a global summit which will bring together leading maritime decision-makers from all over the world to propose new solutions to the major challenges faced by the maritime industry. The aim is to create a recurring international event building on Denmark's role as a natural hub in maritime Europe.

Chairman of the Danish Shipowners' Association & CEO of DS Norden Carsten Mortensen said :
- “Denmark is one of the world's leading maritime nations. Therefore, it is quite natural for us to establish the shipping industry's version of the Davos summit and to bring together the world's maritime decision-makers for discussions not only on the challenges facing the industry, but also on proposals for solutions.”

Strategic government focus on growth in the maritime sector

The maritime sector is a major engine for growth, innovation and economic development in Denmark which has a long heritage as a maritime nation. Last year, the Danish Government launched an agenda for growth in the maritime cluster to build on the maritime strongholds and offer even more competitive framework conditions. Danish Maritime Days is part of the outcome of this strategic focus.

President of Danish Maritime & CEO of MAN Diesel and Turbo Thomas Knudsen said:
-“Danish maritime companies supply innovative solutions that are among the best worldwide. Consequently, we contribute to setting the global maritime agenda. By means of Danish Maritime Days we build on this tradition and cement Denmark's position as an important player when debating the future of the maritime sector.”

Danish Maritime Days will be held 6-10 October 2014.
