Digital Ship Hamburg 2016

Innovation and Technology Transforming the Maritime Landscape

The maritime industry is evolving to reflect a dynamic and ever changing world. Forward thinking companies have a desire to enhance their operations and maintain competitiveness – and a clear path to this is by taking a flexible and resilient approach – using advances in technology to unlock exciting business potential and tackling organisational challenges.

So how can the industry adapt to these new technologies, and harness innovation to build sustainability, agility and efficiency into their businesses? How is technology changing the way we operate and do business?

Through plenary presentations, open forum Q&A sessions, and dedicated workshops, this year’s Digital Ship Hamburg will be a platform, to both look back at recent developments and discuss how these have changed the maritime landscape, as well as to provide a snapshot into how technology advances are driving the evolution of shipping and review the game changing impact of innovation on the maritime world.

This year, the 7th annual Digital Ship Hamburg will focus on 10 core areas:

  • Reviewing Key Developments in Maritime Technology in the Last Decade
  • How is Innovation Driving the Future of Shipping?
  • Beyond Connectivity - Evolution or Revolution?
  • Focus Session: GVF Maritime Satcoms Focus Panel – a briefing on the latest satellite communications innovations and trends in the connected maritime ecosystem
