DIGITAL SHIP ATHENS 2016 announces Agenda and Speaker Line-up


Following the enormous success of last year’s Digital Ship Athens, Digital Ship is pleased to announce our return to this shipping hub, with the 14th Digital Ship Athens conference and exhibition, taking place on 9 & 10 November at the Metropolitan Hotel.

Digital Ship Athens has long been synonymous with learning, networking, discussion and, above all, a look to the future of shipping. This year’s event will be no different and, across two packed days, will once again address both the strategic and practical challenges that our industry is facing at present. As well as covering innovation in maritime communications, technical developments and of course issues around risk and safety, we will also be looking at drivers in the maritime business.

Topics on the Agenda for discussion include:

• How is evolution in maritime communications driving the future of shipping?
• The Digital Age – maximizing efficiencies with next generation solutions for the maritime market
• What is the future of unmanned vessels?
• Big data and analytics to drive innovation, competitiveness and growth
• The evolving cyber challenge: Risks and implications
• Future-proofing your IT infrastructure
• Planning for disruptive innovation and influence
