This is the fourth time that WISTA Germany has the pleasure of welcoming you in Hamburg, including the very first WISTA International AGM and Conference, which took place here all the way back in 1981.
Since then, not only has the shipping industry changed enormously, but the pace of change and pressure to adjust is accelerating. Therefore, we are tailoring the conference to highlight new trends in the maritime industry and where these might take us in the near future.
We will keep our theme, Shipping 2025 – Today’s actions for tomorrow’s business. The included topics sustainability, digitization, and infrastructure remain import and due to covid-19 digitalisation is accelerated and potentials in supply chains came to the fore. We will also draw inspiration from the IMO World Maritime theme for 2020 “Sustainable shipping for a sustainable planet” and latest developments displayed at the SMM taking place Feb 2nd – 5th 2021 in Hamburg.
