Digital Ship are excited to be returning to Singapore – for the 8th year in a row. We have once again developed the programme to reflect the important developments in the Singaporean – and Global - shipping market, as well as to provide the region’s owners and managers with a forum to learn more about the products and services that can ensure their companies remain at the forefront of the shipping industry.

Digital Ship Singapore will also provide an ideal meeting point for users to learn from each other and meet potential business partners. An interactive two day forum of presentations and panel discussions at the most senior level will investigate developments in maritime technology and look ahead at the challenges and opportunities in this sector. A concurrent exhibition will showcase solutions and innovation in maritime communications and technology.

This year the key topics that will be covered are:

  • Developments and Lessons in Maritime Communications
  • Efficiency in Vessel Operations
  • Big Data Analysis for Business Optimisation
  • Developments in eNavigation and ECDIS Performance
  • Solutions for Enhancing Safety & Training          
  • Plus – new for 2014 – a focus session hosted by The Maritime Data Optimisation Initiative– which will look in more detail how the use of data from ships systems can and will change the modern maritime industry.
