The Week replaces the planned live Podisonia event and brings together leading media for a series of web conferences and forums taking place from 26-30 October 2020.
Seatrade Maritime – which this year also celebrates its 50th anniversary – will bring a series of webinars to the Week looking at ‘Why Digital is the way forward for shipping’; ‘Reducing the environmental footprint of shipping’ and ‘Future fuels – including LNG’.
“All of our friends and colleagues in the industry have faced challenges this year and we are pleased to be able to support this great initiative by providing our community with some great content from speakers including ABS; Isle of Man Ship Registry and Liberia Ship Registry,” said Emma Howell, Marketing Director, Seatrade Maritime, Informa Markets.
“We also have firm commitment from eminent shipping correspondent, Dr Martin Stopford, who will headline the ‘Why Digital’ session.”
According to Theodore Vokos, Managing Director, Posidonia Exhibitions S.A: “The global disruption of COVID-19 has had a significant impact on the shipping industry, compounded by the cancellation of conferences and events that would normally be offering a platform for meetings and debate. Now, more than ever, is the time for the shipping industry to talk again and re-open the channels for exchanging ideas and exploring solutions.
“We are delighted that Posidonia Web Forums Week will be taking place in October with a programme of exciting web events hosted by our partner organisations. Posidonia is bringing the maritime communities together. That’s what Posidonia is all about”.
