Live Webinar | Thursday 25 June 2020 | 12:00 PM BST
Over 1.6 million seafarers keep the world’s merchant fleet at sea, delivering fuel, vital medicines, food and equipment globally. However, closed borders and quarantine restrictions due to the current COVID-19 pandemic are hampering crew changes, creating a potential seafarer welfare crisis which threatens to interrupt world trade. What role can technology take in easing this deadlock and thereby safeguarding the future wellbeing of crew?
In the meantime, maritime training and crew welfare services are being radically reformed to capitalise on the rapid advances in shipboard technology.
This webinar will bring together leading maritime experts and analysts to provide you with an insight into:
- The impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on our seafarers
- Where technology has the biggest potential to ease the current deadlock
- How tomorrow's technology is shaping today's seafarers
This webinar is free to attend and is created by Seatrade ShipTech, as part of Digital Maritime Week, which runs from 22 - 26 June 2020 and features live webinars from leading Informa Markets maritime brands.
