LNG and beyond: Global challenges, sustainable solutions

A trilateral matchmaking conference for pioneers in the maritime sector

This year our trilateral event, which will be hosted at Yara International ASA, will bring together specialists, market participants and policy makers from the maritime sector that aim to make maritime logistics more sustainable. We will address upcoming trends and projects from Norway, Germany and The Netherlands, technology and future business models that impact the transportation industry. Possibilities for funding projects will be introduced and an outlook on tomorrow’s short sea shipping will be given (e.g. battery propulsion, fuel cell systems, etc.).

We look forward to many lively conversations, knowledge sharing and networking opportunities at this year's event. Site visits will give you a first-hand insight from Norway.
