  • Transformational technologies- what shipping will soon look like
  • Transactional and operational efficiencies
  • The Enforcement Conundrum
  • Pathway to Decarbonization
  • Fuel, lubrication and bunkering
  • Energy alternatives
  • Managing risk through change
  • Implications on shipping of the Poseidon Principles
  • Fleet optimization strategies
  • Connected ships
  • Ballast Water Challenges
  • Digitalization and cyber security
  • Age of Autonomy
  • The Human Element
  • Regulatory Compliance

In addition, we will be hosting the popular Shark Tank where industry gets a first hand look at new technologies and services that are looking for funding and partners.
