Identifying opportunities for growth is critical to all businesses, and especially so in such an integral industry as shipping. Staying ahead of the innovation curve is key to this development, with the digitalisation of the maritime sector at the core of this changing landscape.
With this in mind, Digital Ship is pleased to be heading to the shores of the Mediterranean, to the famous maritime city of Marseille, for our first Maritime CIO Forum Med, where the focus is on how to harness these opportunities, and how to address the challenges and questions all these advances in technology are posing to our industry.
Through four key sessions, we will ask how the industry is responding to change and investigate what technology and digital transformation can do for us. Plus, Roundtable Sessions and a closing Networking Reception kindly sponsored by Marlink – open to all conference participants.
Session 1: The Maritime Satcom Summit
Investigating the evolution of maritime mobility and connectivity
Session 2: Managing Maritime Cyber Resilience
A look at maritime cyber security, safety and risk
Session 3: Special Focus Session – Blockchain and its impact on the Maritime Industry
Where do we see the priorities and opportunities and how do we explore them?
Session 4: The iShipping Revolution
How big data, IoT and analytics are bringing about a shift in smart operations – how can we harness
digitalisation to deliver innovation and opportunity?
