Attending DSM

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 and not open to the public. Please make your registration before arrival. Make sure that your Shipping company is registered, then register as Shipping delegate.

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. DSM19 will have all the ingredients for a fruitful exhibition, providing ship owners with relevant, information-rich seminars, efficient “speed meetings” with exhibitors and of course opportunities for spontaneous meetings too.

With relevant keynote 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 fret, all seminars will be filmed and made public on our Youtube channel.

The festive Banquet dinner will take place in the harbor. 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.

HR and Crewing

Get inspired

To encourage HR and Crewing personnel to be a part of DSM, we introduced seminars intended for HR and Crewing Personnel at DSM17. This was well received and for DSM19 there will be a seminar and a workshop on September 3, in Donsö IS klubbstuga, situated close to the Exhibition area.

Seminar – DiscPuls Analysis. September 3, 13:30 – 15:00
Self-awareness, the understanding that we are different as individuals in the management team and employees and communicate effectively to different personality types.

With the help of personality profiles, individuals can strengthen themselves in their self-knowledge, which is important as a manager and employee in a working group. DISC PulsAnalys can help, gain an increase the  understanding of each other and see the strengths of each other’s differences. It also increases the knowledge of how to communicate effectively and successfully.

Workshop – How can we communicate clearly, motivation and driving forces. September 3, 15:30-17:00
