Now entering its fourth year, SHIPPINGInsight is the premier annual maritime technology forum in North America. The 2015 event will take place Oct. 13-14 at the Stamford Marriott Hotel in Stamford, Conn. It brings together shipping companies, classification societies, regulatory bodies, consultancies and technology suppliers to address technical solutions for the challenges facing today’s maritime industry.
“SHIPPINGInsight has achieved impressive growth every year since it started and 2015 will be no exception, ” said Frank Soccoli, conference co-director. “We expect upward of 200 registered delegates, including more than 25 shipping company executives, with 25+ industry sponsors and 40+ exhibitors. We are moving into a much larger hotel at a convenient location at Stamford city center with more space to accommodate our growing event.”
“The agenda for 2015 includes a full session dedicated to Ship Telematics, one of the hottest subjects in the international maritime community, ” said conference co-director Jim Rhodes. “It will include panel discussions of experts in maritime satellite infrastructure and big data solutions, as well as a roundtable discussion of transformative technologies and their impact on future shipping operations.”
