Feedback always confirms that networking is as important as the knowledge gained at conferences. Participants at this year’s Propulsion & Emissions Conference will benefit from multiple opportunities to meet with industry experts and peers from across the world to discuss and share solutions to the current economic pressures and environmental challenges.

As well as providing technical solutions for compliance with emission regulations together with cost saving and performance enhancing solutions, this year’s Conference will provide additional opportunities for networking and discussion. Delegates will have more knowledge sharing opportunities during a number of panel discussions built into the programme, as well as networking throughout the refreshment breaks and lunches, and at the Welcome Reception and Conference Dinner.

The Welcome Reception, hosted by Blohm & Voss on 9 May 2017, will serve as an ice-breaker and participants can meet other participants, in the relaxed environment of the Hafen Klub, and get to know fellow delegates. The Conference Dinner, sponsored by GE Marine and taking place on 10 May 2017 at Block Brau, will further enhance networking opportunities in a relaxed, social environment.

All networking events are included in the delegate fee – book your place now to join ship owners, operators, ship designers, engine manufacturers, suppliers and classification societies to network, discuss, debate and share information on the pertinent issues facing these key stakeholders at this crucial time for the shipping sector.
