Minister Michael Creed has announced that Cork City has been chosen to host the European Maritime day for 2020.

The Minister for Agriculture, Food and the Marine, Michael Creed T.D. has congratulated Cork City on being designated as the host city for European Maritime Day in 2020.

The event is organised by the Council of the European Union.
The European Maritime Day is the flagship event in the European Union’s maritime calendar, consisting of a two day conference with over 1,000 stakeholders from across the European Union coming together to discuss the development of this sector.Â
It will be the first time that Ireland has hosted this flagship event.

SeaFest, Ireland’s national maritime festival, will take place in Cork in conjunction with the conference.
Speaking on foot of the announcement, Minister Creed congratulated the city on being chosen and spoke of how perfect the location is to host the event.

He said “My congratulations to Cork City on securing this prestigious event for the city. Cork is the ideal location for European Maritime Day and it was my honour to support the nomination. Cork is a vibrant, bustling port city with a dynamic and energetic marine community, as well as rich maritime history.”Â

The Minister continued by pointing out one of the oldest yacht clubs in the world which just happens to be in Cork.

He said, ”European Maritime Day in 2020 will coincide with the 300th anniversary of the Cork Royal Yacht Club, one of the oldest yacht clubs in the world. 2020 also coincides with a target date set in our national integrated maritime plan, Harnessing Our Ocean Wealth, and so presents an opportunity to demonstrate to our European colleagues how Ireland has developed this vital sector of our economy. In conjunction with the conference our national maritime festival, SeaFest, will take place in Cork. This festival has truly captured the public imagination with an attendance of 60,000 in Galway in July in 2016. It is this enthusiasm, this embracing of our maritime culture that we can bring to the hosting of European Maritime Day in 2020.”

European Maritime Day consists of a series of events across Europe,with the main event, the European Maritime Day Conference.
It is organised each year by the Commission in a different European country every year.Â
