European Maritime Day 2022


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

EMD is the place where ‘Ocean Leaders Meet’. It provides an engaging and complete 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, thematic sessions, stakeholder workshops and project pitch sessions organised by stakeholders and the European Commission as well as hundreds of B2B meeting opportunities. EMD targets professionals from businesses, governments, public institutions, NGOs and academia.

The 2022 edition of European Maritime Day will take place in Ravenna, Italy, on 19-20 May. It will be co-organised by the European Commission, the City of Ravenna and the Region of Emilia-Romagna. 

EMD 2022 will offer an interesting programme (more information will follow shortly) with great networking opportunities for the maritime stakeholders: High-level plenary sessions including inspirational speakers, leadership exchanges and stakeholders’ workshops, pitch stage sessions presenting success blue projects, an exhibition, B2B meetings and networking activities.

As in the previous years, stakeholders’ workshops will be at the core of the conference. For 2022 EMD will accommodate 20 high-quality workshops (5 time slots with 4 workshops running in parallel).
