We also focus on introducing various white papers that cover the latest smart technologies in the maritime sector and their impact on the operational and commercial activities of maritime companies. '

'However, the most important value that we provide to the strategic sponsors and participants is launching the “Maritime Business Leaders Forum” which transforms the conference into a networking platform for trade relations and sharing opportunities among decision makers and maritime entrepreneurs.
