"Back to the Future of Maritime: 2007 -2027"!
Marine industry leaders joined NAMEPA in celebrating our 10th Anniversary at our "Back to the Future of Maritime" Conference, followed by our Decennial Celebration and Awards Dinner.
The Conference examined where we were 10 years ago, how we are doing today, and what the future portends. Global and shipping markets, regulatory framework, new technologies, strategies for mitigating risk, securing mariner welfare, cyber security and more were discussed.
