2020: A Shipping Odyssey
Maritime’s Monolith Moment is At Hand
We are facing shipping’s “monolith” moment now. What that looks like, and what we can do to address it forms the basis of next week’s SHIPPINGInsight 2020 conference and exhibition. Here is a thematic overview of the event:
- Day 1 (October 15th)- there is an ABS- hosted seminar in the morning which will look at how shipping can move to sustainability in order to meet 2030 and 2050 goals. The afternoon program will kick off with Dr. David Bowman, and Industrial Scientist who will give us insights on how industries win or lose and why. This will be followed by a panel discussion on being successful with the 2020 changes followed by an enforcement panel addressing HOW this will work.
- Day 2 (October 16th) starts with a Breakfast Briefing by Moran Cyber, then the conference will be opened by Lois Zabrocky, CEO of International Seaways. We will then move on to a panel discussion on transactional and operational efficiencies, followed by a presentation by Microsoft on the risks of digitalization in the future. Breakout sessions will rotate between digitalization sessions and compliance. Cayman Islands Ship Registry will host lunch and the Shipowner’s Roundtable discussion on what keeps them awake at night. The afternoon will focus on Decarbonization, moving into a discussion on the impacts for shipping of the Poseidon Principles. That evening will be karaoke and dinner, which I am sure you won’t want to miss!!!
- Day 3 (October 17th) takes us into the future with Arlie Sterling giving us a taste of what future markets will look like followed by a panel discussion on Transformative Innovations and what shipping will soon look like. We will then have our incredible SHARK TANK!!!! We have 6 judges and 8 “chum” who will all be competing for the coveted SHIPPINGInsight Innovation Award, presented at the Award luncheon following.
