And this year the focus is on The Future of iShipping and how to address and harness the opportunities, challenges and questions advances in technology are posing to our industry. How are advances and new channels in satellite operations changing the face of communications, data usage and sharing?

Then bringing it all together - how are all of these innovations in the maritime cloud and the Internet of Things influencing The Future of iShipping?
