Call for videos

This year, more than any other, we feel it is important seafarer voices are heard.

We would like to hear from you if you are an active seafarer. Send us a brief video message and we will broadcast it during the plenary sessions at CrewConnect Global. 

Your video can include either a message or question(s) to our audience of crew managers and ship managers, or you can simply share your thoughts on the future of the industry. 

Contact Joanna with your video message.

The CrewConnect Global community is 500+ strong to date. But, on the advice of our members and supporters, we want to provide more opportunities to diversify and provide a stronger platform for meaningful conversation and opportunities.
