Digital Ship Athens Conference
Starting on Wednesday, 7th November 2018 until Thursday, 8th November 2018
Over the past 12 months, 15 Digital Ship events have taken place around the world - in locations such as Oslo, Copenhagen, Bergen, Hamburg, Rotterdam, Limassol, Tokyo, Singapore, and London. We have covered the full spectrum of innovation and digital transformation in shipping – including what this means from a business perspective, for your operations and, of course, for Seafarers themselves.
We have looked at how autonomous shipping is directing the maritime future; we have discussed how the changing cyber threat landscape is driving planning and decision making; we have learnt what the impact of upcoming regulations and compliance issues may be and how to manage these; we have heard from exciting new entrants and start-ups looking to find a place in our industry world; we have reviewed shipping’s position in the supply chain and how to better collaborate with our partners, and we have delved deeply into what digital disruption really means for our business bottom line.
Coming back to Greece for our 16th Annual Digital Ship Athens Conference & Exhibition, we aim to bring the year’s conversations and discussions together, to look across the board at the "digital ship". Once again, we expect to host over 300 participants, including 140+ shipping companies.
The first day will cover 3 core sessions:
The Maritime Satcom Summit - What’s next in maritime connectivity and how will this power future developments?
Blockchain in Practice -Digitising the global supply chain
iShipping: Harnessing Maritime’s Digital Future- Enabling collaboration, harmonisation and standardisation in our operations
The second day with consist of a special focus on Building Cyber Resilience– including a hackathondesigned to address the real issues your companies are facing now and may face in the future.
We will also host Roundtables on all the topics covered throughout the two days - to enable participants, speakers and sponsors to continue their discussions and ask the questions they really need answers to in an informal, interactive setting.
