Digital Ship’s Maritime CIO Forum Shanghai has been developed to address the issues and trends that technology leaders face in an increasingly changing and continuously developing business environment. Digital Ship is excited to be heading to Shanghai, for the first time, to deliver our Maritime CIO Forum where the focus will be on Smart Shipping and the impact of innovation and digital advancement in the maritime industry and the future of shipping.
The aim is to provide a forum for shipping industry leaders and executives to discuss initiatives, ideas, outlook, opportunities and indeed challenges that face the shipping sector – as well as a chance to talk about how we can best harness digital transformation in our shipping operations. Through an opening scene setter, and four key focus sessions and interactive panel discussions, we will ask how the industry is responding to change and investigate what technology and digital transformation can do for us.

Opening Session: China’s Marine Economy: Balancing Industrial Innovation with Sustainable Development

Session 2: The Maritime Satcom Summit Investigating the evolution of maritime mobility and connectivity

Session 3: Harnessing Maritime Cyber Resilience A look at maritime cyber security, safety and risk
