The two monumental challenges that the seafarers’ industry faces today, and probably shall face more in future are:

• A shortage in the supply of skilled seafarers worldwide, and

• Predicting future skills needs due to digital revolution

The Future Skills Maritime Global Conference 2020 shall be focusing on identification and analysis of future skills requirements in the maritime industry. The focus shall be to bridge gaps between the trainings offered and the actual need of the industry as an outcome of industrial revolution 4.0

The COVID19 pandemic has unleashed chaos that has also dealt a death blow to physical events. However, we have shown resilience and in fact glad to get this opportunity to scale new heights. Pivoting our approach to envision a global view, we have conceptualised FUTURE SKILLS MARITIME 2020. This is a great virtual platform for maritime professionals from across the world to contribute ideas, share experiences and vision for the new world order ahead.

Our collective focus is to make shipping safer and cleaner. This will be possible only when we visualise the future of maritime operations and its demands from professionals. The FUTURE is NOW and the world expectantly looks at us to see how we embrace it.

We are fortunate to have an amazing team on board. Besides, the virtual event would be a wonderful networking opportunity to explore new horizons and to enhance existing standards. Come aboard, all hands on deck!
