The Luxembourg Maritime Cluster will organize the fifth edition of its 𝗕𝘂𝘀𝗶𝗻𝗲𝘀𝘀𝘄𝗼𝗺𝗲𝗻 𝗶𝗻 𝗦𝗵𝗶𝗽𝗽𝗶𝗻𝗴 𝗘𝘃𝗲𝗻𝘁 on March 5th, 2024, at 18:30, to celebrate International Day of Women’s Rights, at Come à la Maison (70 route d’Esch, L-1470 Luxembourg).
The number five is always particular, even more, when discussing rights. For this fifth edition, the Luxembourg Maritime Cluster wants to reinforce its voice, to resonate for the cause, and to make this Businesswomen in Shipping initiative more impactful. This year, the event will not be a cocktail and dinner only. It will be an evening of experience sharing and empowerment. A moment of inspiration with a guest speaker who will discuss her struggles and motivations. A time to grow, to be inspired, and of new hopes.
That evening will also be under the sign of charity. International Day of Women’s Rights calls for solidarity between all of us, to be able to receive but also to give. The Luxembourg Maritime Cluster will raise funds for the Luxembourgish association ”Femmes en détresse asbl”, which has done an incredible work for more than 40 years. We count on your support to help the association to have more impact in the coming year.

On March 7th, 2023, the Cluster Maritime Luxembourgeois organized the fourth edition of its traditional 𝗕𝘂𝘀𝗶𝗻𝗲𝘀𝘀𝘄𝗼𝗺𝗲𝗻 𝗶𝗻 𝗦𝗵𝗶𝗽𝗽𝗶𝗻𝗴 𝗡𝗲𝘁𝘄𝗼𝗿𝗸𝗶𝗻𝗴 𝗘𝘃𝗲𝗻𝘁 at Come à la Maison. More than a networking event, it became a convivial time where all the participants share their passions, life-interests and create friendships through a cocktail and dinner.
The 𝗕𝘂𝘀𝗶𝗻𝗲𝘀𝘀𝘄𝗼𝗺𝗲𝗻 𝗶𝗻 𝗦𝗵𝗶𝗽𝗽𝗶𝗻𝗴 𝗘𝘃𝗲𝗻𝘁 gathered 34 people from the Luxembourg maritime sector. The community is growing yearly, and the Cluster is delighted to have welcomed people from shipowners’ companies, insurance companies, banks, law firms, the finance sector, the Maritime Affairs, and more. This event was also a moment to highlight together International Women’s Day, celebrated on March 8th. We thank all the participants for having made this event happen, which was memorable! ↓ Pictures of the event below ↓
How has the maritime sector has evolved regarding the inclusion of women in the past 20 years?
During this interview, Ms. Julie Sottiaux talks about her professional and personal experience during many years abroad. She crossed the world working for international missions of Jan De Nul Group. In the second part of the interview, she talks about the new initiatives of the company. The Cluster tried this new concept for the first time, and the Working Group Marketing is currently working to improve it.
In March 2020, the Luxembourg Maritime Cluster organized for the first time a networking event dedicated to businesswomen. It was a cosy and friendly evening and the meeting of people that did not know each other. They had the opportunity to exchange about their own experiences in the maritime sector and more!
