New for 2013

18 February - Pre-Conference Workshop: Amending an OSV Charterparty to meet the requirements of the MLC 2006
This half-day workshop is designed to bring you up to speed with how the standard OSV Charterparty may need to be amended to address the effects of the MLC 2006. There are many clauses impacted by the ratification of MLC 2006, failure to understand the potential risks and ramifications of these is not to be taken lightly. This crash course will ensure you’re aware of the risks and can take suitable corrective actions as necessary. For more information click here.

Information Zone
We have added an additional area to the conference this year that will provide an opportunity for suppliers to present their latest products or services to their clients and prospects. There will be just 15 of the 15-minute presentation slots available over the course of the second day of the conference and they will be held in a dedicated 50-seater theatre adjacent to the main conference room. Presentations will be scheduled so as not to clash directly with any of the topics being covered on the main conference stage to ensure that delegates can remain focused on the event’s main strategic issues.
