The next stop for our European Maritime Day cruise is on 31st of May and 1st of June 2018 in sunny Burgas at the Black Sea. As usual we are working with you to offer an attractive programme and great networking opportunities. You can now apply for the organisation of a workshop (deadline 30 November).

Organise your own workshop

Thematic stakeholder workshops are at the core of the conference. Each workshop lasts 1.5 hours. For 2018 we plan to select 18 high-quality workshops (three slots with 6 workshops running in parallel).

Workshop organisers design and manage their workshop. We require workshops to have an interactive format that engages the audience into discussion and aims to deliver key policy messages / actionable conclusions.

The European Commission ensures the general coordination and information for the workshops and provides the needed logistics: rooms and equipment (computer, screen, WiFi, sound equipment). The available space in EMD 2018 in Burgas is:

  • 5 amphitheatres (400, 230, 180 and 2x150 fixed seats) and
  • 6 rooms with possible café style organisation (40 seats).

We try to accommodate as many as possible of the originally proposed workshops. To avoid overlap we sometimes ask similarly themed workshops to merge. This second step will take place in the beginning of 2018. Final information on the workshops will be finalised by the end of March.
