European Maritime Day Cork 2020

The European Maritime Day (EMD) Conference and Expo is the annual two-day event during which Europe’s maritime community meet to network, discuss and forge joint action on maritime affairs and sustainable blue economy. 


EMD Conference and Expo is the place where ‘Ocean Leaders Meet’. It provides an interactive experience to catch up on the current state of play on a broad range of issues concerning the blue economy and the marine environment and discuss ways of moving forward. It features a large number of excellent speakers, multiple breakout sessions and project pitch sessions organised by stakeholders and European Commission services as well as hundreds of B2B meetings. EMD targets professionals from businesses, governments, public institutions, NGOs and academia.

EMD 2020 is organised jointly by the European Commission, the City of Cork and Our Ocean Wealth Summit. It will be celebrated on 14 and 15 May 2020 in Cork City Hall together with Our Ocean Wealth’ (OOW), Ireland’s flagship annual event for the marine sector and will be held back-to-back with the ‘SeaFest’, Ireland’s largest free family-friendly maritime celebration.
