Smart Shipping 2018

Smart Shipping Symposium 2018

City of Glasgow College Maritime Symposium
Monday 18th - Tuesday 19th June 2018
City Campus, 190 Cathedral Street

In 2017 the maritime industry buzzed with new terminology such as ‘Big Data’, ‘Disrupters’, ‘Blockchain’, ‘Autonomous Ships’.  The underlying theme was that new technology will radically change the maritime working environment.

Now in 2018, whilst keeping abreast of technological change, it’s time to focus on the human element again. In particular, how can we interact with and exploit these new technologies to help us work smarter?

  • What is changing and do we need to upskill our knowledge, behaviour, and attitudes to remain competitive in this changing landscape? 
  • Are our current business models still fit for purpose?
  • Are we training our new talent in the skills that they need now or the skills they needed 20 years ago?

Over the course of the two-day symposium, industry-leading speakers will outline their experiences and vision for the future and how we can achieve smart shipping.
