Here are NBCC’s event plans for 2021 carrying over into 2022, and as all plans this too may be subject to change at some point.

Major events will be in collaboration with our Premier & Partner members, Team Norway and Network Partners such as IKT Norge, Norwep, SAMS and Nordic Edge to mention some.

As a non-profit membership organisation with few possible revenue streams so sale of sponsorships and individual tickets for events and conferences will be very important.

Event locations: Aberdeen, Edinburgh, London, North East England, North West England.

Hybrid events from January through to May/June

We’re planning to have 2 hybrid events per month. Small network events with members, guests and speakers physically present at several locations in Norway and the UK connected virtually. For individuals who cannot attend one of the network events can obviously logon from any location.

Topics will include:

  • Energy Supply Chain Event – How to become a Supplier to Energy Operators
  • Business Ethics
  • ESG in Shipping
