SAFETY4SEA is happy to announce that SAFETY4SEA Events are going global. Since 2010, all SAFETY4SEA Events have been focusing on fostering safety excellence and sustainable shipping by enhancing industry’s knowledge and intelligence on latest developments and regulatory updates concerning safety, green and smart shipping challenges. In 2018, the first SAFETY4SEA Conference was organized in Cyprus, making the start for establishing a global presence for the events. Now, SAFETY4SEA conferences take place in significant shipping hubs around the world, gathering high level global speakers; apart from Greece and Cyprus, the first events in Hamburg, Singapore and London are on the agenda for this winter.
‘’We have been asked by our readers and stakeholders to extend our presence outside Greece and we are therefore delighted to add Hamburg, Singapore, and London three of the global leading shipping hubs to our destinations with more to come in 2019.’’ Mr. Apostolos Belokas, Managing Editor, SAFETY4SEA explained.
