Connected Future

Thank you all for joining us!

Thank you all for joining us!

The ‘must attend’ London International Shipping Week 2023 didn’t disappoint!

A big thank you to everyone who joined our Connected Future Conference, where we gathered valuable insights on paving the way towards smarter and more profitable operations and how collaboration and sharing data are key to the maritime industry in achieving its sustainability goals and targets.

We extend a huge thanks to all our speakers, moderators, panellists, our conference partner Smart Maritime Network, and our special guest, Helen Sharman CMG OBE, Britain’s first Astronaut – who blew everyone away with her inspiring stories and knowledge on how to develop a deep level of trust, teamwork, and the call-out culture needed when embarking on a shared goal, in her case - travelling into space!

To be continued….see you all again at LISW 2025.

It's a wrap
