The full-day conference will gather over 150 delegates from various sectors within the shipping and maritime industry.
Themed ‘Dealing with Tomorrow’s Challenges Today’, the conference aims to provide the maritime community with a detailed road map – in preparing for tomorrow’s challenges in today’s changing landscape.
Participants will explore insights on key topics including new requirements and legislation, disruptive technology, cargo issues of today, and the upcoming challenges of loss prevention from a speaker line-up of senior, internationally recognised industry speakers.
The Conference also celebrates women in maritime, in line with IMO’s World Maritime Day theme for this year: ‘Empowering Women in the Maritime Community’ where top female industry professionals including Maite Bolivar Klarup, General Manager for BIMCO; Anushka Nair, Claims & Demurrage Manager at Ardmore Shipping; and Monica Park, Chaplain of South Korea for Mission to Seafarers, join our panels to discuss the industry’s concerns from various perspectives – the regulatory requirements, practicality, legal implications, and the impact to both shipowners and seafarers.
Capt. Yves Vandenborn, Honorary Secretary and Associate Fellow of The Nautical Institute(AFNI) said, “With prominent shipping figures leading the discussions at the conference, we hope to produce meaningful engagements and key takeaways for our valued delegates.”
