Full details

Shipping is waking up to a new age where digitalisation is re-shaping the world and creating increased opportunity for development and innovation. Revolutionary concepts plus the evolution and advancement of existing platforms are providing unparalleled growth opportunities for shipping and related transport and supply chain infrastructure. But achieving digital success requires knowledge and understanding, and an ability to drive your company's digital thinking and transformation rather than be driven by it.


Returning to Hamburg on 24 April, we will investigate how we can harness these opportunities and will debate which are going to stick and really make a difference. We will ask how we can identify the real digital legacy in front of us and truly re-define digitalisation in maritime and transport.


This one-day conference will include plenary, panel, and Q&A sessions as well as many networking opportunities, including a post-conference reception for all participants.  Sessions will include:

Session 1: The Maritime Satcom Summit
