Annual General Meeting and 5th International Ship Owning and Ship Management Summit Notice

SUMMIT PROGRAMME – Tuesday 16 October 2018
08:00 Registration and Welcome Coffee.
  It is ‘steady as she goes’ say the economists when talking about the current freight markets but today’s owners and managers have more to worry about such as how to navigate through the regulation maze while taking advantage of advances in technology and artificial intelligence that in themselves, promise greater efficiencies and control. But how prepared is today’s shipmanagement sector in meeting these and other demands and is it a question of ‘need to have’ rather than ‘like to have’ when it comes to investing in the future?
09:00  InterManager AGM

13.40 Marine Purchasing Panel Debate: Can collaboration cut costs?

Marine purchasing is an essential and important part of managing today’s ships but is enough being done to ensure the right efficiencies are in place? Can even more cost be extracted through the effective management of the purchasing operation or are prices already too close to the bone to threaten the quality of the supply operation and of the goods themselves?

  Moderator: Sean Moloney, Editorial Director Ship Management International
