Hamburg - 3 May

Plus Pre-Event Seminar - 2 May

Identifying opportunities for growth is critical to all businesses, and especially so in such an integral industry as shipping. Staying ahead of the innovation curve is key to this development, with the digitalisation of the maritime sector at the core of these changing landscape.

With this in mind, Digital Ship is pleased to be returning to the famous maritime city of Hamburg, this time with our Maritime CIO Forum, where the focus is on how to harness these opportunities, and how to address the challenges and questions all these advances in technology are posing to our industry.  

Through the four key sessions, we will ask how the industry is responding to change and investigate what technology and digital transformation can do for us.

Sessions to be covered:


Session 1: The Maritime Satcom Summit
Investigating the evolution of maritime mobility and connectivity


Session 2: Managing Maritime Cyber Resilience
A look at maritime cyber security, safety and risk


Session 3: Special Focus Session - Blockchain and its Impact on the Maritime Industry
Beyond the hype: The long-term advantages and opportunities



Session 4: The iShipping Revolution
How big data, IoT and analytics are bringing about a shift in smart shipping – and how can we harness disruptive influence to deliver innovation and opportunity.

Plus, Workshops, Roundtable Sessions and a closing Networking Reception, kindly sponsored by Marlink – open to all conference participants.

We are also pleased to announce Hamburg as the venue for our tailored pre-conference seminar (on 2 May, from 1400-1730) looking at "Harnessing Digital for Vessel Optimization".
