A part of Danish Maritime Days

In 2016, the key buzzwords of the maritime industry have been ‘The Fourth Industrial Revolution’. The global maritime industry stands in the midst of a market with changing dynamics, where emerging technologies give endless possibilities with an unprecedented processing power.

The emerging technologies have opened up for new products and services that increase efficiency through the entire maritime value chain. The Danish Maritime Technology Conference looked at the key drivers emerging in and from the Fourth Industrial Revolution – the technologies, the products and the services that leads this market change.

The new waves of accelerating technological development require new forms of conducting agile business, given the speed at which innovation and disruption takes place. Members of Danish Maritime are global market leaders within the maritime industry, and together with specialists they discussed their core challenges and presented their solutions to a game changing market.
