A boost for Danmark as leading maritime technology destination

More than 1,000 guests will be coming to Denmark in 2021 when Copenhagen opens its doors to the world leading maritime technology conference WMTC (World Maritime Technology Conference) showcasing the latest innovations within maritime technology at the three-day conference.

A trendsetting conference
The conference was first held in 2003 and has since then been conducted every third year, most recently in 2015 in Rhode Island, USA, and again in December 2018 in Shanghai, China, before it hits Denmark in 2021. In the amazing setting of Tivoli Congress Center in Copenhagen, Danish and international guests will experience not only the conference tracks but also more than 150 academic posts along with activities for students as well as an exhibition with all the latest in maritime technology.

Former CEO from DNV-GL to head the conference
The conference will be organized by MDC (Maritime Development Center) in collaboration with the professional conference organizer MCI. To head the conference in Denmark, Henrik O. Madsen, former CEO of DNV-GL, has been appointed by DSNAME Foundation.

”The execution of a major international conference of this caliber within maritime technology is ideal for the further strengthening of the profile of the Blue Denmark and will help cement our position as an international maritime force. Our planet is facing enormous challenges and it is my clear expectation that one of the driving themes on the conference will be sustainability as the very ambitious goals in our industry must be honored”, says Henrik O. Madsen

A strong international network
The international organization behind World Maritime Technology Conference, is World Maritime Technology Congress, which consist of 21 sister organizations of DSNAME from 17 countries.
