Maritime Future Summit
Innovation and vision for shipping and shipbuilding
The first ever Maritime Future Summit, held on the day before SMM, sheded light on trends and the latest developments in automation, digitalisation and data management. Major players and decision-makers discussed the latest themes and visions in shipping and shipbuilding.
New for 2016: Exhibitors whose products and services focus on ‘Digitalisation’ were listed in a Digital Route.
The programme for the Maritime Future Summit 2018 will be announced in spring 2018.
One thing is certain: the shipping industry is undergoing massive change. The “Digital Twin” concept is an example: The ability to reproduce ships digitally, and the use of drones fitted with high-tech cameras will reduce the effort involved in ship maintenance and mitigate safety risks.
