AllAboutShipping’s Top 25 Conferences for 2018

by admin

AllAboutShipping’s  Top 25 Conferences, Forums, Debates et al for 2018 was a tough, possibly the toughest process from all  our surveys given not only the distance to travel to the one or to the other end on Planet Ocean but imperatively the attendance issue. You just can’t go for a day or for a session; a must to be from the  very beginning – normally the pre-conference reception until the good bye drinks and dips so you have a full view/picture – you network, you “add” more questions !!! With too many regulations and deadlines on many issues in an ever changing world, except their importance, they serve as a “tool” / “platform” for Maritime Education and Training to all intents and purposes.

Many Congratulations to all the organisers, moderators, speakers, delegates and venue owners and also to all those in choosing the themes and relevant subjects. We also take the opportunity to:

a) Urge politicians to devote time to attend and  be able to stay until the end or the minimum: remain after their presentation to response at the Q&A time!!!!

b) To ask the organisers to use the traditional way for questions and not the electronic way / application on the electronic screen / board with whatever this entails for security/privacy  and “justice” / impartially reasons! It is not nice to spend all the time to listen to the speakers and not have the time, sometimes for not even ONE question…

c) When asking a Question do please state  c l e a r l y  and  l o u d l y  your Name, Company ; don’t be “shy”… you dead well know what we mean…!!!  and

d) The organisers must ensure that there isn’t another major event even on a worldwide basis so prospective delegates and speakers can attend!
