  • European Maritime Day is the annual meeting point for Europe’s maritime community to network, discuss and forge joint action. The EMD 2017 conference and exhibition will be held on 18-19 May 2017 in Poole.

    Registration for the conference is now open

    Stay tuned on the preparation of EMD.

    European Maritime Day (EMD) is the most prestigious event organised by DG MARE, the European Commission's maritime/marine division. Designed to bring together Europe's community of maritime professionals in order to share knowledge and forge partnerships, the prestigious annual event has been hosted by some of Europe's major maritime locations since 2008. This year, in 2017, the honour has been awarded to Borough of Poole.

    This one-off opportunity will promote Poole as a springboard to promote local and regional business to an international audience.

    In support of EMD 2017 we have built a Business Programme and Public Festival that forms part of the week of activity collectively known as Poole Maritime Festival (PMF).

    The European Maritime Day (EMD) is the annual meeting point for Europe’s community of maritime professionals to come together, exchange knowledge and forge the partnerships needed for joint action. It was created in 2008 by the EU institutions in order to provide a forum for people from different areas of the ocean economy, from the world of science, from public government and administration to showcase their activities, learn from each other, discuss cross-cutting issues and develop joint visions.

    EMD Conference: The main event of EMD is the European Maritime Day Conference, held in a different region with a different theme each year. The EMD Conference includes plenary and thematic sessions (with the participation of high level and key-experts) as well as workshops that are self-organised by interested stakeholders. The EMD conference regularly attracts more than 1000 maritime stakeholders for a unique, creative and motivating experience.
