New technologies, shifts in the global economy and demographics, rapidly evolving consumer demands and environmental pressures are reshaping the market for shipping serves worldwide, including the Middle East and Subcontinent. The industry’s regulatory structure, communications, financing, commercial and operational practices are all out of synch with the digital age and are thus failing to optimise its benefits, many believe.
A new event, taking place on 22-23 March in Copenhagen, Shipping2030 Europe, aims to bring innovation to the forefront to provide the platform that the shipping industry needs to locate and share cutting-edge ideas and information. This event will provide what it describes as “a laser-focused look at the transformative technology entering the market” and provide industry professionals with exclusive insights into new opportunities and digital models of doing business.
This year Shipping2030 is co-located with the Green Ship Technology conference (GST), one of the leading environmental shipping events in the industry calendar.
Key topics to be discussed include big data and data management, smart and autonomous ships, smart ports, ballast water & waste management, ship design, connectivity, new emerging technologies, vessel tracking and cyber security, air emissions, sustainability and much more, delivered by experts at the forefront of digital and innovation in the industry.
Shipping2030 will be chaired by the chief executive of Futurenautics, KD Adamson. Other speakers include: Oskar Levander, Vice President Innovation, Engineering & Technology, Marine at Rolls-Royce; Niels Bruus, Head of Future Solutions, Fleet Management and Technology at Maersk Line; Edmund Hughes, Head, Air Pollution and Energy Efficiency, Marine Environment Division, IMO; Morgen Schrøder Bech, Director, Maritime R&D, Danish Maritime Authority; Heiko Kunst, Director General, Climate Action, European Commission; Ulf Siwe, Communications Officer, STM Validation Project, Swedish Maritime Administration; Tom Strang, Senior Vice President, Maritime Affairs, Carnival Corporation; and Kristi Tikka, Executive Vice President, Global Marine, American Bureau of Shipping
