European Maritime Day

Held for the first time in 2008, European Maritime Day (EMD) is a prestigious international two-day conference and exhibition hosted by a different country each year. Former host cities include Brussels, Rome, Gothenburg, Athens and Bremen.

The conference is the heart of the project, bringing together around 1,000 industry leaders and policy makers including ministers, EU Commissioners, MPs and MEPs, academics, scientists and maritime experts. The conference themes address the EU’s Integrated Maritime Policy promoting economic growth, skills, technological innovation, environmental concerns and sustainability across Europe.
