Countdown to ESW 2017
ESW 2017 is now underway
European Shipping Week 27 February to 3 March 2017, Brussels
The first European Shipping Week took place over the course of the week of 2-6 of March 2015 and featured a variety of events. The second will take place in Brussels from Monday, 27 February to Friday, 3 March 2017 and promises to be an even greater success.
European Shipping Week is intended to be a platform where policy-makers from the main EU institutions will meet and engage with European shipowners and other stakeholders from the shipping sector. The focus is on shipping, in all its different aspects.
European Shipping Week is the brainchild of the European Community Shipowners' Associations (ECSA) and is run by a Steering Group made up of Europe's main shipping organisations as well as the European Commission and Shipping Innovation. The shipping organisations involved on the Steering Group include: ECSA; Cruise Lines International Association (CLIA) Europe; European Community Association of Ship Brokers and Agents (ECASBA); Interferry; the European Dredging Association (EuDA); the World Shipping Council (WSC); the European Transport Workers’ Federation (ETF); the European Tugowners’ Association (ETA); as well as the European Maritime Pilots Association (EMPA).
