    6:30 p.m. - 9 p.m.

The forum will be a review of the evolving challenges and threats to the maritime trade routes and what they might mean for mariners and seaborne trade. We are reminded daily of the hazards of the approaches to the Black Sea and the Red Sea, the China Sea and there are other areas to consider. There are constant reminders of the economic impact of disruption to the maritime supply chain, but what are Government (MOD,  DfT), ship operators, lawyers, brokers, and bankers doing to protect seafarers and mitigate the disruption, and what can they share.  

We are grateful to BMT for sponsoring this event. 

The forum is an opportunity for you to share best practice with other leaders, as we work to energise the UK Maritime Sector, while meeting national and international security and Climate Change challenges. Delegates are encouraged to offer their experience, as well as ask questions. We are looking for a wide-ranging discussion, considering how we can maximise the benefits of technology while understanding the risks, including those associated with cyber technology. At the conclusion of the formal session there will be a networking reception.  

As leaders, we face shared challenges, right across the maritime sector. Trinity House and Maritime UK have recognised the need to bring leaders together to discuss their approach to shared challenges, share practicable actions and discuss future priorities for action from both government and industry. This session is designed to help businesses develop their resilience.  

The event will be at Trinity House, doors open at 1800 and the talk and discussion will begin at 1830. The panel will lead a discussion with delegates until 1945, to be followed by the networking reception, finishing at 2100. There is no charge for attending. Please use the complementary tab in the booking form.
