The Mission to Seafarers to appear as featured guest charity at SMM 2016
Global maritime welfare chairty The Mission to Seafarers has been invited to appear as featured guest charity by SMM Hamburg 2016.

“We are delighted that The Mission to Seafarers will be our featured guest charity in their 160th anniversary year,” said Claus Ulrich Selbach, business unit director of SMM.

“The Mission’s work is vital in providing seafarers and their families with round the clock care and support in over 200 ports in 50 countries worldwide. Seafarers are the life-blood of the shipping industry,” Selbach said.

Jos Standerwick, director of development at The Mission to Seafarers, commented: “Bringing together the world’s thought-leaders and decision-makers in the shipping industry is at the heart of SMM, and they have put together an outstanding and dynamic programme around the key themes of digitalisation, green shipping, maritime security and careers.”

Every two years, representatives of the maritime industry and experts from all over the world gather in Hamburg, Germany to showcase innovative developments and leading-edge technologies, and discuss the industry’s prospects.

“All of these core subjects have a direct impact on seafarers and their families’ welfare, and the quality of the lives they lead,” Standerwick said.

The Mission to Seafarers will be at Hall FC.GF Stand 4.
