hosting the European Maritime Day conference, held at the Mediterranean
Conference Centre in Valletta.The European Maritime Day is

jointly by the European Council, the European Parliament and European Commission
as part of the EU's Integrated Maritime Policy launched in 2007.)

the everyday life of all EU citizens.

The EMD
2013 CONFERENCE

The main theme of the European
Maritime Day 2013 Conference will focus on sustainable coastal and maritime
tourism in the wider context of Blue Growth. It will be an occasion to reflect,
at high level, on how to make Blue Growth happen through sustainable tourism,
connectivity and coastal management. A special focus will be made on the
Mediterranean Region.

The European Maritime Day Conference
is spread over two days.  The first day
(the Political Day) is dedicated to plenary sessions and high-level discussions.  The second day is Stakeholders' Day and
consists of a series of workshops organised by stakeholders themselves on
topics related to the EU's integrated maritime policy. In addition stakeholders
can put up stands in an exhibition area at the conference venue.

The conference is a very good
opportunity to network with other maritime stakeholders not only at a local

excellent opportunity to capture market exposure and to exchange experience and
knowledge in a highly stimulating environment.
