Hosted by Blohm+Voss, the 39th Propulsion & Emissions Conference Welcome Reception took place yesterday evening (9 May 2017) at the exclusive “Hafen-Klub” (Habour Club) located in Hamburg Harbour close to the St. Pauli Landungsbruecken. Delegates were treated to stunning views of the river Elbe and the Klub also overlooks the Blohm+Voss docks. The noise level indicated the networking had got off to an excellent start with delegates greeting old friends whilst also making many new acquaintances.

With two operator panel discussions and four stakeholder panels part of this year’s programme, participants will have many opportunities to network and knowledge share and the networking highlight will undoubtedly be the GE Marine conference dinner taking place at Block Brau this evening (10 May 2017).
