European Maritime Day Cork

The 2020 edition of the European Maritime Day (EMD) will take place on 14-15 May 2020 in the City of Cork, Ireland. EMD 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 growth. The opening session will target the “EU Maritime Policy towards 2050” and the plenary session will focus on ‘Empowering Future Ocean Leaders’.

EMD will be celebrated together with 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.

The event and exhibition will take place on 14-15 May 2020 in the City Hall of Cork and is co-organised by the European Commission, the City of Cork and ‘Our Ocean Wealth’ Summit. As in previous years, stakeholders’ workshops are at the core of the conference. A call for stakeholders' workshops has been launched with plans to select 20 high-quality workshops (four slots with 5 workshops running in parallel) for the event.
