NorShipping is coming up in the end of May. As you prepare for your trip to Oslo, here are three topics I think would be top-of-mind for participants:

  • Environmental impact
  • Disruption and business models
  • Big data and Digitalization

1. Environmental impact

A significant pressure from the society and regulators forces shipping to lower environmental footprint. Global Sulphur Cap and Low-Carbon pathways will be in focus for the DNV GL Conference, trying to answer the many uncertainties ahead and the solutions already available. If you are a provider of fuel reduction technology, you may ask yourself how well you are explaining your technology to your target audience.

Here is some inspiration from Silverstream Technologies on how they promote their air lubrication system:

2. Disruption and new business models

Experts disagree to which level disruption will alter the shipping industry. Still, as Carsten Hemmingsen, Chairman of the Danish Shipowner’s Association, says; Disruption is on everyone’s mind. CEO of DFDS, Niels Smedegaard echoes his sentiments: – Some of the great shipping companies might not be here in 10 years, he told Berlingske Tidende. Perhaps you should join Lloyd’s List for a panel discussion on the topic, or join Disruptive Talks?

3. Big Data and Digitalization

There is no way around it: No fair or seminar without a Big Data discussion. Rather than just talking about it, you will need a structured approach. For inspiration in Oslo, consider visiting Digital Ship Maritime Big Data Forum, or visit some of the other digital presentations. For a structured framework on Big Data, I would advise you to study this brilliant article from Oleto Associates: Big Data: The Six I’s To Value
