Nor-Shipping 2007 already booked to near capacityNews // November 29, 2006
Nor-Shipping 2007 is already at near capacity.
With over six months to go before Nor-Shipping 2007, the eventís organisers have announced that reservations on exhibition space have already exceeded totals recorded for the 2005 event.
Nor-Shipping Director Tollef Schiander said that measured by the total amount of reserved space, the exhibition is already six months ahead of where the organisers were prior to the 2005 event.
"We believe our success is the result of the shipping industry's high level of activity and revenues and our concerted efforts to brand Nor-Shipping as the leading maritime event week," he said. "Nor-Shipping continues to strengthen its position as a vital gathering place for leading people, leading businesses and leading technologies in the shipping industry."
Nor-Shipping 2007, which is scheduled to take place June 12Ė15 June at Norway Trade Fairs located between Oslo city centre and Oslo airport Gardermoen, will be the largest in the history of the event, featuring more national pavilions, new exhibitors and larger reserved stand areas.
Countries like Italy, Turkey, Vietnam and India which earlier have been absent or marginally represented, are now actively using Nor-Shipping in their efforts to market their countries and individual exhibitors to the industry.
Schiander said that in order to manage increased attendance, the organisers have decided to erect a provisional hall, which will supplement the total exhibition area with an additional 800m2 of exhibition space.
This new area is quickly filling up, and Schiander expects the event will be fully booked before year's end.
Potential exhibitors seeking last-minute stand reservations may however still contact Nor-Shipping and Account Manager Kent Kristiansen on email@example.com for available space.
