South West coastal town Poole to host European Maritime Day Conference in 2017

Monday, 1 July 2013
The large coastal town and seaport of Poole, Dorset has been successful in its bid to host the two-day European Maritime Day conference in 2017.

The event, held annually on 20 May, will feature a host of maritime experts from all over Europe with topics addressed including renewable energy, sustainable fishing and coastal erosion. It is jointly funded by businesses and the EU. This year's event took place in Valletta, Malta and Bremen in Germany will host the 2014 edition.

South West Conservative MEP Julie Girling was delighted at the news. She said: "This is an opportunity to really put Poole on the map in Europe and showcase what a great place it is."

European Maritime Day was created by the Presidents of the European Commission, the European Parliament and the Council of the EU on 20 May 2008.
