WORLD SHIPPING FORUM - 2017

MARITIME INDIA - PROPELLING GROWTH AMIDST DISRUPTIVE TECHNOLOGIES

ABOUT THE FORUM

"World Shipping Forum – 2017" offers an opportunity for promotion of your company / product through sponsorship of the programs / delegates / lunch / dinner / conference package / or through advertisements in the souvenir to be released on the occasion. Exhibition Stalls have been provided for product displays that will help the delegates familiarize themselves with the product on exhibit & interact with you.

The concept of disruptive technology extends beyond engineering or manufacturing to encompass a range of marketing, investment and managerial processes. Innovations can be a process of change in any of these technologies.

"It is not the strongest of the species that survives, nor the most intelligent, but the one most responsive to change".

"In a global economy, the government cannot give anybody a guaranteed success story, but you can give people the tools to make the most of their lives"

Phillip Bobbitt

INVITATION

"WORLD SHIPPNG FORUM – 2017, ( WSF ­ 2017 )" is the flagship event of The Institute of Marine Engineers (India), Chennai Branch. It is held once every four years and provides a unique platform for participating delegates and stakeholders in the Industry to explore potential business opportunities.

Shipping is at crossroads today amidst dire market conditions rife with over-capacity, low margins and slow growth. Maritime India debates the threats that exist in world shipping and explores avenues for sustainable growth in an age where innovation or sustaining technologies perhaps need to step away in favour of disruptive technologies. Needless to suggest, it is not business as usual, as we welcome you all to soul wrenching sessions encompassing critical areas such as digital sector, robotics, satellite communication, changing environmental regulations or sharing information.

We attempts to find solutions to build, market, finance and manage the ships and ports of tomorrow, when Govt. of India is intent on heavy investments towards development of Indian maritime sector & Ports/Terminals under the umbrella of maritime growth. Shipping Ministry has identified two major maritime clusters similar to Japan and Korea, with scope for developing various components like maritime and ancillary services for these clusters as part of its efforts to cut logistics costs, enable competitive trade and boost India's economic growth.

"WSF - 2017" with its theme "MARITIME INDIA – PROPELLING GROWTH AMIDST DISRUPTIVE TECHNOLOGIES" will serve as a platform for discussion on wide ranging topics connected with the shipping industry. On behalf of the Organizing Committee and The Institute of Marine Engineers (India), Chennai Branch, we extend a warm invitation to you and your organization to actively participate in the "WORLD SHIPPING FORUM - 2017" to be held in Chennai from November 23 – 25, 2017.

With your wholehearted support we sincerely hope an eventful interaction on the various topics will fine tune our focus to offer our participants with wonderful opportunities that are available in India to expand with rapid growth of their maritime businesses.
