Not only does the conference boast two full days of panel discussions and presentations from leading industry professionals, it also boasts excellent networking opportunities.


During the two day conference, delegates were about to meet, discuss and network during the coffee breaks which were sponsored by ABS, and also during the lunch breaks which were sponsored by DNV.

This year 160 delegates concluded the first day with a drink’s reception sponsored by Yanmar. Delegates were about to wind down with a glass of wine and digest the days presentations and discussions with other maritime experts and also cast their votes for the much anticipated Motorship Awards.

Following the drinks reception, delegates made their way to the Hamburger Elbspeicher where they enjoyed a three-course meal, of traditional German cuisine made with local ingredients including a main dish of fresh fish or pork. During the conference dinner, the Motorship Award winner, ABB Dynafin, was announced and presented to Janne Pohjalainen, Global Product Line Manager.

These are excellent opportunities to expand your contacts, and also for companies to advertise their products and services.

Photos of the conference will be uploaded on our website next week, and you can see live coverage of the event on twitter.
