Young Entrepreneur Award postponed to January 2022

YoungShip International regrets to announce that the decision has been made to postpone the Young Entrepreneur Award to 2022 in line with the wider Nor-Shipping events and the opening ceremony at Oslo City Hall.

YoungShip International fully support the decision of Nor-Shipping to postpone this summer's exhibition to the beginning of next year in order to ensure safety of all attendee and maximize face-to-face opportunities.

Nor-Shipping has announced that:

"Nor-Shipping, Your Arena for Ocean Solutions, has taken the decision to postpone its planned exhibition and activity programme for June 2021, pushing the event back to 10-13 January 2022.

Faced with the possibility of a scaled down, socially distanced exhibition due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, Nor-Shipping has opted to move to retain its “personality and impact”, ensuring global decision makers have the opportunity to meet face-to-face, connect and build prosperous partnerships.

Nor-Shipping 2019 was the most successful event week in the initiative’s over 50 year history. It saw more than 50,000 participants (a 34% increase over 2017), gathering from over 85 nations, at the main exhibition halls in Lillestrøm and across venues throughout nearby Oslo. However, under the current circumstances, the planned 2021 programme could not have delivered the same industry impact, experience and value, state Nor-Shipping Directors Karen Algaard and Per Martin Tanggaard."
