iShipping Copenhagen: Investigating the Innovation Curve in Shipping

iShipping Copenhagen 2017 has been developed by Digital Ship to take a bird’s eye view of the technical and digital developments and drivers we have seen emerging over the last few years. Across two days of keynote presentations, plenary sessions, panel discussions and round tables, we will look at how these are going to continue transforming the maritime industry.
