European Maritime Day (EMD) is the annual meeting point for Europe’s maritime community to network, discuss and plan joint action. The EMD 2017 conference and exhibition will be held on 18-19 May 2017 in Poole, UK. In preparation for EMD, an INFO DAY meeting for Maritime Stakeholders will take place in Brussels, on 25 October 2016, at 14:00.

The INFO DAY organised by the European Commission (DG Maritime Affairs and Fisheries) in cooperation with the Borough of Poole and the United Kingdom’s Permanent Representation in Brussels, will take place at the Residence of the British Ambassador, rue Ducale 17, Brussels, Belgium.

EMD is specifically targeted at maritime stakeholders from across Europe: policymakers, industry representatives, government departments and agencies, NGOs, academics and researchers, etc. This European conference will be the centerpiece of Poole Maritime Festival, which will run from 15-21 May, and which will also be dedicated to engaging the general public celebrating Poole and Dorset's local maritime heritage and environment. As in previous years the European Commission invites all interested stakeholders to get actively involved in shaping the event by proposing their workshops. Three different workshop formats are possible: a) Policy Seminar, b) Good Practice Workshops and c) Project presentations.

Please register early for the INFO in Brussels, at https://ec.europa.eu/eusurvey/runner/emd2017-stakeholder-infoday, as the room has limited capacity.
