Digital Ship iShipping Conference Copenhagen, 27 & 28 February 2018
Achieving Differentiation through Digital Innovation
27 & 28 February 2018 - Copenhagen
Given the speed of change in the maritime market, it’s no longer enough to look just one year, or even five years, ahead. There is a fundamental shift taking place, with shipping now facing a new landscape, thanks to the Fourth Industrial Revolution, where technology is creating even greater resilience in connected spaces, and those companies that want to maintain competitive advantage must find ways to adapt in order to compete. And in times of turbulent change, strategy and differentiation matter.
Demands for increase in efficiency, safety and sustainability can be only achieved through innovation. But what does innovation really mean, and how should the shipping industry truly look to the future? What can maritime learn and harness by “creative swiping” from other sectors, and from new entrants to the market. How can Maritime really make digitalisation part of the business agenda?

Session 4: The Pioneers’ Showcase – Accelerating Maritime Transformation
Shipping is still one of the most traditional industries, but the speed of change in the maritime sector is providing a real opportunity for new entrants to the market. With even CMA CGM creating their own start-up incubator, it is clear that we need fresh influence to accelerate much needed maritime transformation.
This session will provide a platform for start-ups with demonstrable traction and pitch to join the discussions around Maritime’s digital future. With the opportunity for first-mover advantage, this is the time for new entrants to make themselves known, and demonstrate how they can help the shipping sector harness all that digital innovation has to offer.
