Marintec Innovation Series 2020

Launched in 2017, Marintec Innovation is dedicated to covering important topics in the global maritime industry, and to let the ‘sparks of inspiration’ fly to create new ideas.

Following “Cruise Shipbuilding” in 2017, “International Marine Intelligent Energy Efficiency Technology” in 2018, and “Marintec Interiors” in 2019, this year’s theme is “The Fourth Industrial Revolution at Sea”. A one-day conference which will be taking place at the Shanghai Renaissance Zhongshan Park Hotel on 3 December 2020. Advanced digital technologies I4 is powerful and experienced in automobile and aviation and can show how much can be achieved. If the same technologies are applied in the maritime industry, it will transform sea transportation and lead to the fourth industrial revolution at sea since the 19th century.

And against the backdrop of the global pandemic, social distancing and the postponement of many of the world’s leading maritime events, we think connecting quality buyers and exhibitors to create meaningful connections has not changed, but rather adaptation is called for.

The finale in December Marintec Innovation Conference will put the spotlight on the importance in the I4 demand and with the shared mandate, drive the maritime industry to the environmental agenda.
