The place to be in 2017 was Donsö, an island in the southern part of the Gothenburg archipelago in Sweden. Over the course of 2 days, around 2,000 delegates from 33 different countries gathered to discuss shipping and shipping related topics. More than 600 representatives from a wide range of shipping companies and 260 exhibiting suppliers came to lend their perspectives, make new connections and forge new business opportunities. By the end of day one, 1700 seated guests enjoyed a three-course meal at the Banquet dinner, where Petter Stordalen was key speaker and Tommy Körberg performed.
The interest to participate in DSM17 was greater than ever and we had to expand the facilities to fit everyone in. Between pre-booked speed meetings and spontaneous meetings participants could attend a wide range of mini-seminars, and this year we introduced seminars intended for HR and Crewing Personnel. DSM17 Main sponsor Alva Laval hosted the opening seminar: The Future of Shipping Industries. All seminars and other films from DSM17 are available on our Youtube channel. We were proud to launch the Swedish Shipping Gazette DSM17 Edition, produced by Sjöfartstidningen.
