Den Helder to host 2021 European Maritime Day.

Every year up to one thousand European maritime professionals from both the public sector and the corporate world flock to a hosting port city to discuss the latest news in maritime development and shape future action. The 2021 edition will take place in Den Helder.

The theme for the 2021 edition will be decided by the province and the municipal in collaboration with the European committee and the ministry of infrastructure and environment. Deputy Cees Loggen: “the province Noord-Holland would like to pay attention to the changes necessary for the harbours to better satisfy the needs of the vast growing number of vessels using the sea”.

What kind of events?

  • Workshops

  • Conferences

  • Seminars

  • Exhibitions on maritime themes

  • Site events and site visits

  • Networking social gatherings

  • Maritime festival

In short, many activities, lectures, excursions and visits to the region about everything related to the sea, eg energy at sea (ECN, Port of DH), research into the maritime climate (NIOZ), tours, visits etc. a big happening with possibilities for tour operators and shipping companies and partners to view facilities and excursion opportunities in the Kop van Noord-Holland / Holland region above Amsterdam. Because Den Helder is surrounded by sea on three sides, the sea is of great importance for the creation and development of this region (the battle against water).

As far as we are concerned, in 2021 you are most welcome in Den Helder during the EMD!
