Not to be missed at SMM 2022: NL day

5 september 2022

During the NL Day on Wednesday, 7 September, the NL Pavilion will revolve around Dutch heritage.  The NL Day will be opened at 10 am by NMT's Managing Director Roel de Graaf and Alderman Simons of the city of Rotterdam. Transformers will be walking around all day and the orange balloons cannot be missed.

Innovation Tours

New this year are the Innovation Tours. Visitors can join a special tour along the participants of the NL Pavilion. A guide will bring you up to speed on what the Dutch maritime technology industry has to offer. Moreover, there is an inspiration wall about the future of the North Sea. How do visitors of the NL Pavilion think we will use the North Sea in 2050? The answers are made visual by a professional illustrator. Curious about what that it will look like? Come and see!

Chat 'n Snack

At 4 p.m., we'll take it a step further.  With typical Dutch snacks and Dutch icons at various locations throughout the Pavilion. Nothing is too crazy at the Chat 'n Snack. You almost get a King's Day feeling!
