Seatrade Parliamentary-Style Debate
SMART Shipping and Automation Comes Under the Spotlight
NEW for 2019!
Witness engaging debate; learn from key maritime leaders and be a part of something remarkable as Seatrade Awards welcomes you to our first live content creation.
How does it work?
The Seatrade Parliamentary-Style Debate will put two critical matters under the spotlight - SMART technology and shipping automation.
Two teams of Maritime thought-leaders will rise to the occasion - and each will keen to prove their argument in a lively, frank and honest debate on the official motion.
Who will come out triumphant? That decision will lie with our guests for Seatrade Awards.
