Planting the ‘green’ Norwegian flag

It's new territory for ‘Team Norway’ which will be planting the Norwegian flag for the first time at Seawork this year in the new Team Norway pavilion.

Organised by the Norwegian Maritime Exporters (NME), a member organisation for maritime equipment manufacturers and service providers, and hosted by Seawork, the pavilion gives Norwegian companies the opportunity to market and sell their products and services to international decision makers, gathered under the Norwegian Quality Flag

Since 1995, NME has served as a vital link between Norwegian maritime companies and the global markets with one facet being the organisation of Team Norway pavilions at international trade shows.

NME CEO Erlend Prytz says, “We do it in a cluster of Norwegian – or even non-Norwegian, if they are showcasing Norwegian products or services – firms so that they can get a good location, all the support they need, guests and so on, instead of finding themselves in a remote part of an event in the middle of nowhere,… all they have to worry about is marketing their services or products. Being in a cluster draws attention, so they get more bang for their buck.”

NME members range from large international corporations to smaller innovative companies and niche players, all sharing the common goal of making the maritime industry more effective and environmentally friendly in different ways through various solutions. They are determined to reach the sustainability goals set by the IMO and the UN.

NME project manager Nini Paulsen says, “Norway has been at the forefront of today’s ‘green shift’ with decarbonisation and sustainability on the country’s agenda for a while. Having visited Seawork last year we decided it was the right exhibition to bring that knowledge to.”

“We have [over a] thousand years of maritime history, and I think most companies sense the quality Norway brings,” added Prytz.  “This is what we want to showcase, and we want to do that by establishing ourselves in the city of Southampton at Seawork.”
