The Digital Future for Maritime

We’re delighted that this year our friends over at Isle of Man Maritime are supporting London International Shipping Week 2021 as bronze sponsors. Affectionally known as LISW21, and being hailed as the must see event of the year, we’re even more delighted that our very own Dr Ben Hextall will be amongst the IOMM panel members at the first of their webinar events: The Digital Future for Maritime, a fantastic free event being held at 10:30am BST on Wednesday 15th September.

As international suppliers of maritime communications and IT solutions, the team here at OceanWeb are all too familiar with the fast pace at which the industry grows. Key to remaining ahead of the game is keenly following digital innovation and always being prepared to adapt your processes at the drop of a hat. Nothing has demonstrated this clearer than the COVID-19 pandemic.

Having founded OceanWeb back in 1997, Ben has watched the industry change, grow, and adapt over the years. He’s seen digital communications become as common on board vessels as the bridge itself, and officers as reliant on IT networks as the very engines they work on. With this vast experience and wealth of knowledge, Ben joins other key members of IOMM from every aspect of the industry to discuss the digital transformations already impacting the maritime sector and what we can expect from the future.

Don’t miss out on what is sure to be an insightful and engaging discussion and book your place at LISW21 today.
