DSM2023 + Gothenburg Port Day, August 28-30

Attending DSM

DSM is now a 3 day event!
We start off with Gothenburg Port Day Monday the 28th of August, where you as a shipping delegate has the opportunity to network, listen to interesting speakers, enjoy dinner and entertainment. Tuesday the 29th and Wednesday the 30th of August the DSM exhibition starts, along with pre-booked speed meetings and On stage seminars.

When you register as a shipping delegate to DSM2023, you can tick the box under Additional Events stating that you want to participate in Gothenburg Port Day. As a shipping delegate the fee for participating on the 28th of August is reduced.

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.
