The Maritime CIO Forume Cyprus 2018 to be held in Limassol, March 27
The Maritime CIO Forum Cyprus 2018 is slated to be held in Limasol on March 27, 2018. The even organiser Digital Ship says the Forum will focus on digitalisation of shipping and how it may re-shape the sector and create increased opportunity for development and innovation.
"Revolutionary concepts, plus the evolution and advancement of existing platforms, are providing unparalleled growth opportunities for shipping (including related transport and supply chain infrastructure). However, achieving digital success requires knowledge, and understanding, and an ability to drive your company's digital thinking and transformation rather than be driven by it," the Digital Ship said in a press release.
The Digital Ship's Maritime CIO Forum in Cyprus will bring experts together to address the outlook for the sector and innovations to drive efficiency and differentiation.
Sessions will include:
· The Maritime Satcom Summit – Investigating the evolution of maritime mobility and connectivity
· Blockchain and its Impact on the Maritime Industry – How will Blockchain streamline trade and transport?
· Harnessing Cyber Resilience and Managing Risk – A look at maritime cyber security, safety and risk
· The iShipping Revolution – Redefining Digitalisation in Maritime
