FWD 2024

Festival Day 1

Wednesday May 29th

We open the festival on our biggest stage by asking a high-level panel of political leaders the biggest questions. Costs, war, conflict and public resistance are threatening the development of renewable energy worldwide.  We challenge ourselves and our decision makers to come up with the right strategies going forward.

Day 2

Festival Day 2

Thursday May 30th

The theme on day two is industrial insights. We turn our focus from political decision makers to industrial leaders. 2023 has been a turbulent year for everyone in the industry. Let's turn things around - We'll identify the real bottlenecks and get our floaters back on track!

Our venues

The FWD Hub

The FWD Hub is made up of locations in a 2-minute radius of the main stage. Market Day and Supply Chain Day events will take place here, with a rolling programme of sessions, so you can pick and choose what and when to attend. In the heart of the FWD Hub you'll find the coffee house, Hos Carlos - a good place to meet up and network with colleagues and new contacts between sessions.

Main Stage

We start and finish each day with programme on the main stage in Maritim Hall. Look forward to a programme with international headliner speakers from the offshore wind industry, keynote speakers on sustainability, politics and the ocean industries. Visit our main partners at their stands in the expo area directly outside the main stage.
