Maritime Security Conference
Two day Conference - 13 - 14 November 2013
The wellbeing of the global economy is dependent upon the secure movement of vital commodities across oceans, but with acts of piracy on the high seas an ongoing issue, maritime transportation industries remain locked in a quest to identify and organise adequate protective measures.
Deployment of a significant naval force off the Horn of Africa has done much to quell the activities of pirates operating within the area, but a sharp upswing in acts of piracy off the West African coastline has brought a fresh set of challenges that maritime operators must contend with.
This mission critical annual conference provides deep insight into the issues faced by mariners and the shipping industry globally, detailed strategic advice to help mitigate threats at sea or in port, as well as a wealth of other information vital to secure operating in an increasingly hostile world.
As well as hearing from government agencies, think-tanks and trade associations such as the European Commission, ADS, NATO Shipping, IMO and NYA the 2013 conference also featured speakers from leading international private sector operators such as: Suez Canal Container Terminal.
