DIGITAL SHIP returns to Limassol on 27 March 2018 with the Maritime CIO forum


( Shipping is waking up to a new age where digitalisation is re-shaping the world and creating increased opportunity for development and innovation. Revolutionary concepts plus the evolution and advancement of existing platforms are providing unparalleled growth opportunities for shipping and 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.

In the first in our annual series of Maritime CIO Forums of 2018, taking place in Limassol, we will investigate how we can harness these opportunities and will debate which are going to stick and really make a difference. We will ask how we can identify the real digital legacy in front of us and truly re-define digitalisation in maritime and transport.

Digital Ship will host the Maritime CIO Forum in Cyprus on 27 March 2018, where you can meet and network with industry leaders and keep up with the latest trends, ideas and innovations for your industry.

With an expected audience of up to 150 of the most senior maritime executives, this event is not to be missed. Register without delay online at:

Session 1: The Maritime Satcom Summit
