Reactions from Participants in SHIPPINGInsight 2015:

“This was my second SHIPPINGInsight conference, and I was very pleased to see how it has grown since my last visit. The conference sessions were valuable, and I was especially interested to learn more about cyber security and the U.S. perspective on LNG as a marine fuel. I enjoyed the open-dialogue roundtable sessions addressing pressing topics for the shipping industry, and networking with technology suppliers to help me better understand available solutions.” Angus Campbell, Managing Director, Bernhard Schulte Shipmanagement (U.K.).

“I have participated as a panel moderator at SHIPPINGInsight for the last three years. It is clearly one of the top maritime technology forums addressing ship and fleet optimization in North America. As Technical Director for a large fleet of ships, I always learn something useful at the SHIPPINGInsight conferences, and the networking receptions provide a great opportunity to meet with technology companies and learn about their products and services.” Ravi Singh, Technical Director, Northern Shipping Funds.

“We were very impressed with the format of SHIPPINGInsight 2015. Good discussions, not too ‘salesy,’ good networking, and from our perspective it gave us a strong sense of what keeps our customers awake at night. All in all, a productive few days. We will definitely mark our calendars for SHIPPINGInsight 2016.” Philip Bannerman, Vice President, Innovation, Strategy and Communication, Callenberg Technology Group.

“An excellent conference. Our networking with shipowners at SHIPPINGInsight led directly to three new sales leads, and we have established follow-up meetings. We are looking forward to expanding our participation at the SHIPPINGInsight 2016 conference.” Capt. Tim Park, Sales Manager, Marine Technologies, Transas Americas.
