The biggest news with this year’s fair was the collaboration with Port of Gothenburg, which means that their event Gothenburg Port Day was a part of DSM and a kick-off to the fair. It also means that DSM has gone from two days to an event spreading over three days. Gothenburg Port Day started at the Gothenburg Opera and then continued at Donsö, where the port’s actors and stakeholders got an opportunity to meet and exchange experiences, listen to speakers and enjoy some entertainment.
We also added Innovation Ideas Project Workshop, held by the Swedish Maritime Administration. The focus was on maritime safety and clean shipping. The goal is to develop the best ideas into potential innovation and implementation projects and partnerships. Project themes include digital solutions to improve maritime safety, reduce emissions and tackle the challenges of winter navigation. Other are improved preparedness for maritime accidents and shore infrastructure for clean shipping. This workshop is part of a Baltic regional series of workshops aiming to catch ideas from all countries.
This year we had the pleasure to announce that, Götheborg of Sweden, the world’s largest ocean-going wooden sailing ship, was a part of Donsö Shipping Meet, as well as Tern Island, Olympus, Fure Vinga, NOS and Kvartsita. There was a lot of activities in the Harbour of Donsö and onboard the ships!
