Windward Announces ‘Sea: The Future 2020’ Conference

Windward, a world leader in maritime analytics, today announced plans to hold Sea: The Future 2020 – A Vision for Growth on May 20, at Trinity House, London

Bringing together senior decision-makers from the worlds of shipping, government, finance, energy, security, insurance, compliance, and technology, the conference will discuss how innovation and collaboration can facilitate a safe and thriving maritime ecosystem for years to come.

Ami Daniel, CEO of Windward, said:The maritime ecosystem is facing unprecedented challenges: from new environmental regulations, to security threats, to ever-evolving compliance demands. Meeting these challenges often requires organizations to sail fast just to stand still. Turning them into opportunities calls for the adoption of new technologies, new strategies and new partnerships. Sea: The Future 2020 is the perfect setting to make this happen.”

Line Dahle, Chief Customer Officer of Gard AS, said of the inaugural Sea: The Future:

Honestly one of the best and most relevant conferences I’ve ever been to. The networking was amazing, directly leading to visits from potential partners to discuss collaboration. I’m very much looking forward to Sea: The Future 2020.”

Ben Hubbard, Founder & CEO of Parsyl, said: “Sea: The Future 2019 was the best event I’ve attended since starting Parsyl. The unique approach of bringing together different parts of the maritime ecosystem – tech, insurance, government, finance – really worked. It was great to see a fellow startup exerting some intellectual leadership.”

Confirmed speakers for Sea: The Future 2020 include former BP CEO and Windward Chairman, The Lord Browne of Madingley; Sustainable Ocean Alliance (SOA) Founder & CEO, Daniela Fernandez; Former Deputy Secretary of State, Tony Blinken; and Bunker Holding CEO, Keld Demant.
