A brief look at the agenda

Connectivity, Data & Safety

As the industry is embarking digital transformation to achieve cost effective and safer operations, driven by the desire to collaborate, applications are growing increasingly complex. 

With connectivity and high-speed broadband communications, the data is becoming easy to generate. In order to drive more impactful digital transformation, what traits and behaviours can businesses look to prioritise? Which emerging technologies will add value to the business and how to select the most viable solution?

  • How is technology creating new job roles?
  • Can AI replace human intelligence?
  • What are creative and social skills in demand?
  • How can industry overcome anxiety of crew’s welfare?
Innovation & Regulatory Compliance

Meeting the 2020 sulphur cap mandate, fuel technology, the use of drones for detecting violations… Much of the innovation and regulatory compliance is underway already, but what tools have been used and how quickly new operative models will be able to unlock additional revenue?

We will look at how to overcome the burden of investments in new technologies and how the new fuels will affect the future asset values.

Digitalising Global Trade

The future is here. Shifting from physical to paperless is the key integrator in cost reduction and operational efficiency. 

How to do business better and create a unique customer experience and obtain the benefits of digital disruption? Which benefits will easier data exchange bring about? Could blockchain bring a renaissance to e-bills? What will be the ground-breaking approaches to future supply chain?
