Profiling the seafarer of the future - essential knowledge, essential networking
Solutions for recruitment, training and welfare for seafarers in the digital age at the only annual meeting of the crewing industry in Europe
What to expect?
Profiling the seafarer of the future
With the changes in the industry such as more sophisticated equipment, and changing seafarer mindsets, the central question of the conference will be what does the future seafarer profile look like?
Seafarer driven technology
The future is no longer just an exercise of imagination - cutting edge technology and processes are being tested each day. From collision avoidance, speech recognition and overarching tech trends, we’ll paint a picture of controlled disruption in maritime
A new approach to recruitment & retention
The difference between efficient recruitment & retention can skew the profit & loss balance severely to the loss side. It’s time to consider marine HR in terms of total management approach and build a map for the career path maze
Training for the seafarer of the future
In a reality governed by exponential technology, what does it mean for seafarer training, given that competency is safety-critical and business-critical? Explore traditional & future techniques, learn to engage & employ tech to stimulate and train the seafarer of the future
The wellness ROI
Seafarer welfare is no longer enough. We need to move beyond conventions, beyond regulation and the immediate costs, to a corporate wellness approach. Join us to find out what this means and most importantly, what the ROI is and why and how you can measure it
The future of regulation: redesigning standards
Almost a decade needed to pass & implement a set of standards that meet the minimum requirements for competency of crews, regulatory leadership is generally not the first port of call when we consider a better way. So, can design thinking be employed to instigate change and progress from within the industry?
Free industry review paper
