Organization: European Commission / Maritime Affairs
European Maritime Day was created by a tripartite declaration by the Presidents of the European Commission, the European Parliament and the Council of the EU on 20 May 2008. It is celebrated every year around 20 May and aims to raise the visibility of Maritime Europe. The previous editions of European Maritime Day were held in Brussels (2008), Rome (2009), Gijon (2010), Gdansk (2011), Gothenburg (2012), Valetta (2013) and Bremen (2014) respectively.
The 8th edition of the European Maritime Day Conference is organised by the European Commission in partnership with the City of Piraeus, the Port Authority of Piraeus and the Greek Ministry of Shipping and the Aegean. The theme for this year’s conference is “Ports and Coasts: Gateways for Maritime Growth”.
