Digital Ship events around the world have been developed to address the issues and trends that technology leaders face in an increasingly changing and continuously developing business environment. Technical innovators in the maritime sector are expected to deliver strategies capable of both driving revenue and reducing costs for their organisations - while remaining at the forefront of technological breakthroughs and making smart decisions about maritime technology and satellite communications selection, investment and implementation.

This 13th Annual Digital Ship Athens will address strategic and practical challenges that all companies are facing at present. As well as covering innovation in maritime communication, technical developments and of course safety, training and navigation, we will also be looking at strategic drivers in the maritime business, such as:

  • How is innovation and technology in maritime communications driving the future of shipping?
  • The Digital Age - maximizing efficiencies with next generation solutions for the maritime market
  • The future of unmanned vessels
  • The evolution of maritime data
  • Big data and analytics to drive innovation, competitiveness and growth
  • Evolving cyber risks and implications
  • Future-proofing your IT infrastructure
  • Planning for disruptive innovation
  • And more

This year’s Digital Ship Athens will provide an opportunity for some of the industry’s leading technology experts and business heads to discuss and debate the on-going role of IT and communications in the shipping industry and help to solve the technology, leadership and business challenges ahead.
