Following a successful series of events in 2014 and 2015, we are very excited to be bringing the Maritime CIO Forum to Cyprus – one of the most influential maritime hubs for ship management services and ship owners. We are very honoured that Mr. Marios Demetriades, the Minister of Transport in Cyprus will deliver the Closing Keynote Address, and Mr. Andreas Chrysostomou, Director, Department of Merchant Shipping, Cyprus will do an opening Welcome Address.
The global challenge facing the shipping sector is to meet the ever-increasing demands of a dynamic and fast changing world in a sustainable and responsible manner. Clearly “business as usual” will not be enough to meet these demands. Innovation in products, services and processes holds the key to achieving safe, reliable, cost efficient solutions that also achieve economic, social and environmental sustainability targets.
With an expected audience of up to 150 of the most senior maritime executives from both within Cyprus and further afield, the Maritime CIO Forums have been developed to address issues and trends that leaders in the shipping community face in an increasingly demanding environment; expected to deliver strategies capable of both driving revenue and reducing costs - all while making smart decisions about technology selection, investment and implementation. Throughout this one-day high-level forum, regional and international industry leaders will share their strategies to address the challenges presented by the new maritime landscape, and the key roles played by innovation and the drive for sustainability.
As well as a focus on technical developments, this forum will address challenges that companies are facing at present - such as:
Sessions will be led by panel discussions and interactive discussion with the audience.
Highly targeted, this year’s Digital Ship Maritime CIO Forum – Cyprus will consider the future of shipping and how the CIO’s role can influence sustainability and competitiveness in a fast paced and ever changing maritime environment. It will provide an opportunity for some of the industry’s leading technology experts and business heads to discuss and debate the on-going role of IT and communications in the shipping industry and help to solve the technology, leadership and business challenges ahead.
