Northern Harbour to open with pomp and circumstance

These are busy days for CMP, which together with the City of Malmö will soon be hosting a four-day series of festivities. The 7 September is the day of the official inauguration of the Northern Harbour in Malmö. Over 300 guests from around the world will attend, including ambassadors and government ministers. As the Northern Harbour is seen as a key part of the infrastructure in northern Europe, the project has been co-funded by the EU, and the event will therefore also carry the EU flag. Guests will travel to the event on chartered coaches or boats departing from Smörkontrollen in central Malmö. Accredited journalists will also arrive at the Northern Harbour on board boats along with representatives for CMP and the city governments of Malmö and Copenhagen. Once there, guests will assemble in a giant marquee offering every conceivable convenience. Ilmar Reepalu, Chairman of Malmö’s City Executive Board, and Frank Jensen, Mayor of Copenhagen, will open the event and Johan Wester will act as Master of Ceremonies. Guests will be offered entertainment, artistic performances, lunch and much, much more.

The following day, 8 September, CMP will hold its annual customer event in the Northern Harbour. 250 invited guests will be present. A difference compared with previous years is that Danish guests have also been invited. The programme includes dinner and performances.

On 9 September CMP’s pensioners will celebrate the creation of the Northern Harbour and on Saturday 10 September the Harbour will be open to the public from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. Visitors will be able to travel there by boats departing from Smörkontrollen in Malmö and take a tour of the Northern Harbour on a shuttle bus. They will also be offered refreshments and sweets and the chance to take part in a prize draw. There is no cost, but visitors need to register on the Malmö City website. Numbers are limited to about 1,600 and there has already been a lot of interest. The day will conclude with an office party for CMP’s employees and their families.
