Denmark's new major international maritime event Copenhagen Shipping Summit can already now present three strong partners who all support the event and present each of their conference programs. 

BIMCO will present a Power Panel, with experts discussing the new 2020 sulfur rules and presenting their forecast for the market. Michael Lund, Deputy General Secretary, BIMCO states: “BIMCO is very much looking forward to be part of the first Copenhagen Shipping Summit. BIMCO will contribute with a Power Panel Discussion addressing key developments impacting shipping business today, with the focus on challenges and future prospects for the dry-bulk and oil tanker shipping markets, including the 2020 global sulfur cap experiment.”

Jakob le Fevre, Managing Director of the Shipping Summit, states: "We are extremely pleased with the cooperation. BIMCO is the world's largest shipowner association. With over 2,000 members in 120 countries, including over 1,000 shipping companies, I cannot imagine any other organization that better matches the ambitions we have with the summit." 

The Engineers' Association is planning a conference for the first day, focusing on Sustainable Shipping. Jan Rose Hansen, Chairman of Danish Engineers' Association says “Danish Engineers' Association welcomes and supports the new initiative Copenhagen Shipping Summit. In 2017 several Danish organizations, companies and research institutions joined forces within a partnership labeled the Ocean Plastic Forum. Partners are at present five industry associations, six companies, three universities and two NGOs operating within one legal frame. Danish Engineers' Association act as secretariat for the partnership, and we are planning a conference about this topic at the Summit.”

Maritime Development Center (MDC) will conduct an event focusing on HR & Management. Mikkel Navarro Hansen, MD of MDC, said: "MDC contributes to MARPROS new initiative with an event that emerges from the work of MDC's HR & Crew Management Forum. MDC continuously supports the work of developing the maritime workplace of the future across the maritime value chain. Recently, MDC kicked off the debate on More Women at Sea. MDC is pleased to meet the business on the Copenhagen Shipping Summit platform - about this and other relevant topics that can support our business' positive development."

The venue for Copenhagen Shipping Summit is The Øksne Hall and it takes place April 10-11. The Summit is aimed at maritime businesses in broad terms, but with keen focus on the Summit themes which are: The future for Shipping, Maritime Recruitment Trends - ashore and at sea, Empowering Women in the Maritime Community and Sustainable Shipping. A large Executive Dinner in the H C Andersen Castle in Tivoli will take place after the first day of the conference.
