Seatrade Maritime Crew Connect Global 2024 - Crucial crewing conference confirmed to return

Seatrade Maritime Crew Connect Global 2024 confirmed to return
In a year where major global disruption and increased sustainability pressure continues to pose more challenges to seafarer recruitment, retention, wellbeing, and training, Seatrade Maritime Crew Connect Global will bring the global crewing network together to tackle key issues.

Seatrade Maritime Crew Connect Global is the world’s leading event for professionals responsible for the recruitment, wellbeing and development of seafarers. The three-day conference provides an open forum to discuss challenges and issues while spotlighting opportunities and celebrating positive industry progress.

“We’re delighted to announce Seatrade Maritime Crew Connect Global 2024, which will provide a crucial opportunity for prominent players in the shipping industry to come together and focus on the issues, insights, and solutions that will ensure a positive future for seafarers around the world,” said Chris Morley, Group Director of Seatrade Maritime.

“Each year, our aim is to deliver an agenda that is truly representative of the crewing sector. Last year, conversations were led by over 100 industry experts, who covered a wide range of topics which included ESG, diversity, technology adoption, retention, and wellbeing. We’re currently shaping the 2024 agenda, in close consultation with key industry stakeholders and leaders, and look forward to revealing themes in the near future,” continued Morley.

In addition to its conference, Seatrade Maritime Crew Connect Global 2024 will also bring together suppliers from around the world to provide attendees with a comprehensive selection of recruitment, training, wellbeing, technology, satellite, and onboard management solutions.

“While new issues emerge and current challenges continue to cause disruption, we are witnessing forward-thinking innovation and creativity from established and emerging brands alike. We look forward to providing a platform for these suppliers to showcase their services and products in both the Supplier Expo and New to Show Zone at Seatrade Maritime Crew Connect Global 2024,” added Morley.

Seatrade Maritime Crew Connect Global will take place 12 – 14 November 2024 at Shangri-La The Fort, Manila in The Philippines. Delegate registration will open later in the Spring, while exhibitor and sponsor bookings are now open.
