CMA Shipping
37th Annual Expo & Conference
March 29-31, 2022Hilton Stamford | Connecticut, USA


Connect with the shipping industry ahead of the show by scheduling meetings through our brand new app.

The CMA Shipping app has been designed to offer attendees more than just a list of who is going, and will enable you to book meetings before the event and suggest people you should connect with based on your business interests.

The app will be available to CMA attendees two weeks before the event so that you can start planning your time, and remain live for two weeks after CMA Shipping has finished so you can make the most of any follow up conversations. 

High impact networking at CMA Shipping

  • Save time and connect with the right people - More than just a delegate list, the mobile app (available on desktop too) is powered by AI matching. Everyone who signs in will be asked a series of questions to help the algorithm find people of interest and enable you to get the most out of your meetings.
  • Pre-arrange quality meetings with ease - Start networking and organizing your schedule two weeks before the event. It is easy to contact other attendees and also politely decline meeting requests which are not of interest.
  • Everything you need for success - The app will host attendees, the full agenda, event announcements, the list of sponsors and exhibitors, and the floor plan. All of the event information you need will be available at the touch of a button. 


Conference delegates, exhibitors, speakers and sponsors will receive login details to the app platform with a unique access code two weeks before the show. The app can be accessed on your desktop* or mobile. Simply fill in your matchmaking categories, create a profile and start getting to know your fellow attendees by booking meetings and sending messages ahead of the event. You can also link your profile to social media channels.

Please note that the free exhibition pass holders will only be able to receive messages (you must upgrade to the CMA conference pass to view the full attendee list and send messages).

*Please note that for the best online experience, use Google Chrome or Firefox. If you use other browsers, the experience may be limited. Internet Explorer is not supported.


Once registered, it's important to properly set up your profile to make the most of the app's capability. Answer the short list of questions and let the matchmaking algorithm recommend people to connect with. The more complete your profile is, the more helpful the tool will be.

Your personal introduction is also a vital part of your profile, as it helps you stand out. Other attendees can also search for keywords in your intro, so do include your unique offering and what you’re looking to achieve from attending CMA Shipping.


If you see someone you would like to speak to, reach out and schedule a meeting to connect face to face at the event. 

Time slots where both parties are available are displayed to enable you to quickly set up 1:1 meetings.

Once you have made a connection, you can choose to share your contact details with people you have chosen to connect with, and it's also easy to politely decline meeting requests that aren’t interesting to you.
