Klüber Lubrication at the Donsö Shipping Meet in Sweden

Donsö is an island on the west coast of Sweden. 14 shipping companies are based there. Relative to their population of 1,400 inhabitants, Donsö has the highest shipping company density in the world.

Around 20% of Swedish tankers originate from this island.

During the DSM 2013, about 60 shipping companies, 160 suppliers and over 800 participants have met from September 3 to 4 to discuss the future of the Swedish shipping industry. Donsö Shipping Meet is the biggest shipping convention in Sweden. The Swedish Minister of Infrastructure hosted the opening ceremony.

Boat transfer was organised from Gothenburg to Donsö. It took about 30 minutes to get to the island. To reach the exhibiton place you either had to walk 10 minutes or you could take a small train. Donsö is a car-free island.

During the whole event every company had the possibility to get in touch with the visitors in speed meetings - 20 minute-appointments at the booth.

This successful concept allowed us to present our speciality lubricants suited to the individual needs of vessel owners and operators.

Thank you very much to all of our visitors for the intersting discussions.
