The annual conference 2024 - Defining a New Era

The Norwegian Shipowners' Association's annual conference - Defining a New Era - is taking place at Sentralen, Øvre Slottsgate 3, Oslo on Thursday 14th March 2024. 

We live in a rapidly changing world. Geopolitical tensions and wars prompt industries to adapt to abrupt and dramatic changes, trade restrictions and international regulations. AI technology changes the way we work and increases productivity, but also blurs the line between man and machine. At the same time, we are in the middle of a green shift, imperative to combat the escalating environmental crisis, but also adding to the complexity of the supply chain. These combined forces will drive industry transformation in the coming years. 

At this year’s conference we will take a closer look at how geopolitical tensions, AI development and climate change mitigation, will define the future and we will explore the important role the shipping industry can play in this new era.

The conference will be held in English except a session on Norwegian maritime policy which will be conducted in Norwegian. This session will be simultaneously translated into English for our foreign speaking audience. 

Attendance is by invitiation only.
