Countdown to European Shipping Week – book your place now

European Shipping Week will bring together the major players in the shipping industry with the primary aim of promoting the strengths, and the importance, of European and global shipping to legislators in Brussels, such as the European Commission, European Parliament and the Council.

The week will feature an array of events with high-profile keynote speakers from the world of shipping and the European institutions.


The Hotel, Brussels
17-21 February 2020

European Shipping Week is a platform where EU policy-makers will meet and engage with European shipowners and other stakeholders from the maritime sector.

The first three days of the week each have a specific theme and all events on that day will be addressing related issues.*

  • Tuesday, 18 February 2020 – Safe and social shipping
  • Wednesday, 19 February 2020 – Shipping and the environment
  • Thursday, 20 February 2020 – Flagship Conference and Gala Dinner

*Please note: ESW Flagship Conference delegates are welcome to attend many of the themed events on Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday free of charge, subject to availability. Sign up to individual events, via the event calendar.

The ESW Flagship Conference will be attended by senior officials representing European Union institutions and leading shipowners, operators and all the major European shipping organisations. With a diverse and very high-level line-up of speakers the conference will address the most pressing issues facing the industry today.

ESW Reception and Gala Dinner

Taking place on the evening of Thursday 20 February, the spectacular ESW Gala Dinner, hosted by the European Community Shipowners’ Associations (ECSA), will provide an excellent opportunity for high-level networking. The evening promises to be one of the highlights of the European maritime calendar.
