Recent years have taught the shipping industry that each industry player can succeed only provided that all stakeholders enter a dialogue and work together. The shipping industry is peculiar and, nonetheless, exciting because it comprises a number of parties who hold a different and very significant role within the sector. It is critical to hear from all of them. At the Forum you will find out from the regulators, government bodies and major ports’ representatives what the near future holds for ship builders and operators as well as learn about latest innovations and modern technologies from top technology developers.
