The shipping cluster gathers - DSM2023


Opens in September/October 2024

DSM2023 , August 29-30, 2023

Attending DSM

DSM2023 will take place on August 29-30, 2023. The registration will open in October 2022.

Donsö Shipping Meet aims to elevate Swedish shipping in the international arena, to be a rewarding and productive event for all involved, and to serve its time-honored role as a meeting point for the entire maritime cluster. Unlike the bigger exhibitions in Europe, DSM wants to offer all participants a more intimate event where the priority is placed on making genuine connections.

DSM is a trade fair. Please make your registration before arrival. 

Shipping companies/Ship owners, i.e companies with a fleet, choose sign up as Shipping company/Shipping personnel when register.

Meet the business

Making connections and forging opportunities

We strive for all participants to feel welcomed and taken care of. Our mission is to create a fantastic environment for all participants to network with customers, clients and colleagues, and to support exhibitors and shipping companies in doing business. DSM2023 will have all the ingredients for a fruitful exhibition, providing shipowners with relevant, information-rich seminars, efficient “speed meetings” with exhibitors and of course opportunities for spontaneous meetings too.

With relevant speakers talking about the future of the shipping industry, we are confident that DSM will provide you with useful, actionable knowledge. There will be a lot of activities going on at the same time, but don’t worry, all seminars will be filmed and made public on our Youtube channel.

As registered shipping delegate you are free to take part of all seminars and the Commercial & Financing Meet, the Fire Safety Meet, the Fishing Meet and the HR Meet. You do not have to register separately!

The festive Banquet will take place in the exhibition area. An outstanding three-course dinner will be served along with entertainment. It is a great way to socialize with customers, colleagues and friends in a friendly atmosphere.


DSM HR Meet on DSM2023, August 29
The shipping industry is an important part of Sweden’s infrastructure. Within the industry we see a great need for competence in the coming years. Guidance counsellors from Sweden are invited to take part in a seminar, where they will  learn more about different professions in shipping and possible educational paths. The HR meet program starts at 12:00. Representatives from the industry, schools and universities will together tell and answer questions about the shipping industry and education for future work within it. A panel consisting of representatives from the shipping industry, unions, universities and seafarers participates. There will also be a guided tour in the Donsö deep harbour including Open ship visit.

If you are not present on the Island of Donsö, it will be possible to follow the seminar via Live Streaming, August 29 at 12:00. You don’t have to register!

Below you can take part of a film from the DSM2022 HR Meet.
