Face-to-face conferences and trade shows are starting to take place once again, following nearly two years when such events have either been cancelled, postponed or changed into cyber format. Although the threats of the Covid-19 pandemic are far from over, this is surely a positive sign after a long period of lockdowns, vaccinations, isolation and work-from-home.

Steinar Draegebo, our Chairman & CEO recently represented ICE at the Defence and Security Equipment International (DSEI) conference and trade show in London, one of the world’s premier defence industry events. The same week, he also attended events at the London International Shipping Week. The week before, Coen Landa, ICE’s Business Development Director, represented ICE at the maritime-focussed Envirotech event in Rotterdam.

ICE has traditionally been exhibiting at between two and four trade shows each year and hopes to be able to do so again soon. As travel restrictions ease, ICE also looks forward to seeing customers in person, and not only through Zoom and MS Teams.
