The maritime industry enters a new decade filled with change and uncertainty. From complying with the most profound global shift in shipping as the industry meets the IMO2020 requirement, to preparing for new cyber regulations effective in 2021, to examining strategies for reducing CO2 emissions, maritime leaders are searching for answers and solutions.


With increasing regulatory requirements, accelerated technology development, and a changing society, there are no stones being left unturned as industry evolves. While we cannot control the future, we can certainly work towards understanding the changes and stabilizing known elements while innovating for the future.


Join industry colleagues as we discuss the implications of change, and address action that can be taken now to position maritime for success as we enter a new decade.


We are looking forward to seeing you in Houston on March 3rd!
