Marine Electronics & Communications Conference
24-25 September 2012, London
The rate of change in today’s electronics and communications technologies requires ship operators to continuously evaluate the attractions on offer. Which will make their ships safer and their business more profitable? Which do they have to have, and if they have to have one, which is the best for them? Operators wanting answers to questions such as these will find them being explained, analysed and discussed at the Marine Electronics & Communications Conference being held by Riviera in association with Admiralty.
Are you even sure you know what questions you should be asking? Products and services can look great, but do you understand the small print?
VSAT for example. Do you understand contention ratios, and do you need to? Is ka-band all it’s cracked up to be? How does it differ from ku-band? What are the real VSAT market drivers? What are your VSAT options?
Or ecdis. Some companies already committed to ecdis are convinced that putting the basics in place now is the best way of managing implementation. Others have found it a hard road. Choice of equipment can be critical and quality training is vital. Getting it wrong could be a nightmare. Where can you go for help?
E-navigation may not be on your radar right now, but will it ultimately result in yet more legislation, expensive mandatory equipment and further training burdens? Perhaps you need to get involved and help drive the debate.
The Marine Electronics & Communications Conference gathers all parties to debate these issues. Case studies and shipowner panels ensure that the right questions are raised, and experience shared. Answers to these questions are a lot clearer once illuminated by knowledge, analysis and discussion, and in the light of technological pioneers’ early experiences.
Wouldn’t you like to hear informed answers, and then discuss them with the experts?
Come and see for yourself why Riviera events attract such high quality speakers and delegates. Shipowners and operators come to the Marine Electronics & Communications Conference because they know they will hear about and discuss issues that affect their business.
