The Maritime Transportation 2020 conference (MT2020), set up by the Arab Federation of Chamber of Shipping (AFCS), the Arab Institute of Navigation and ITOLEAD Consulting/MarconHouse partner have developed with remarkable speed – strongly indicating that there is a need for:
- A collective picture of what is the future challenges and possibilities of the maritime industry
- More time for open discussions among speakers, participants … and exhibitors
- A better understanding of the present attention to the development of the Arab region, Egypt and not least the Suez Canal (and its surrounding areas)
What originally was meant to be a smaller conference focused on the maritime industry’s future development (set up quickly after the launching of the Blue Valley initiative)1 , has with a remarkable speed developed into something much more, as the number and level of speakers has grown significantly.
The speakers list now includes some of the industry’s most influential, visionary and powerful maritime experts and innovators but also the list includes a significant numbers of the region’s most influential authorities, maritime bodies, politicians and ministers (including the newly appointed Egyptian minister of Transport who is ready to share Egypt’s Vision for Transport 2030)
Due to this positive attention to MT2020 the organisers promise to share the most important outcome(s) and conclusions of the presentations and discussions with the industry, once the conference is over.
