Nor Shipping 2022


Nor-Shipping is today an important meeting place for companies from across the entire maritime value chain and from around the globe. The strong history of ship ownership and management makes the exhibition a natural fit for the local industry. It showcases 22,500 square meters of the best and latest in maritime technology, services and solutions spread across six halls. The four day event comprises an exhibition, conference and is open to exhibitors world-wide from companies or groups of companies which design, manufacture, maintain, repair or modernise maritime equipment and promote, sell or provide maritime services.




The Society of Maritime Industries is organising and managing the UK group of exhibitors in a dedicated high traffic space in Hall D.  The 2019 exhibition built upon a quiet 2017 exhibition and a lot of late interest was received to exhibit.  SMI only get a limited amount of space to offer companies so please don’t delay if you’re interested in exhibiting.

  • UK Pavilion exhibitors are co-located in a prime location in Hall D.  This Hall is home to the major yards and the space is next to UK shipbuilder Cammell Laird.  The space sits either side of the main thoroughfare between the Halls.
  • SMI as the group organiser, deals direct with the main exhibition organisers, co-ordinates payments, appoints agents and stand contractors and briefs the exhibitors.
  • A new arrangement is in place so UK companies can reclaim the 25% Norwegian VAT worth over £1,000
  • he UK Pavilion includes an information centre for the exclusive use of exhibitors in the UK Pavilion for refreshments.

For further information on the exhibition/UK Group, please contact Tom Chant, on 020 7628 2555 or email

Stand Design

The open stand design used in 2019 was very popular with the exhibitors as it encourages better flow of visitors between stands and increased visibility from all directions.  Extra Items such as display monitors and further cupboards can be ordered via the standbuilder.


Once the booking form for a stand is received SMI will invoice for the Management Fee and notify the Nor Shipping organiser who will also issue the space/standbuild invoice.  This means you will have two invoices (SMI & Nor Shipping organiser) for the event but this will enable to reclaim a significant amount of VAT after the event.
