In parallel with the annual EMD Conference, a series of local EMD events are organised all over Europe for the public at large.

Thematic workshops organised by maritime stakeholders are at the core of the conference. Workshop organisers design and manage their session.



The EMD exhibition space is an ideal place for stakeholders to meet, exchange experience and discuss the latest developments.
