Passenger Ship Safety 2018 – Pursuing Higher Standards in Passenger Safety

Passenger Ship Safety 2018, chaired by Christian Breinholt, Former Deputy Director General, Danish Maritime Authority and former Chairman of the Maritime Safety Committee, International Maritime Organisation, is the only forum of its kind to discuss passenger safety amongst cruise and ferry operators.

The passenger ship industry faces key changes surrounding the necessity to grow and adapt with the ever-increasing size and complexity of passenger vessels.

With a number of high profile cases demonstrating the need for new solutions to minimise containment times and impact on passengers, Passenger Ship Safety will begin the meeting with a dedicated fire safety focus day to explore innovative technology, solutions and strategies to keep passengers safe at sea.

This will be followed by the main 2-day programme where over 200 attendees will learn from successful case studies, understand crucial requirements for future ship building and the impact of alternative fuels on marine operations. The meeting will also debate the future of LSA and training methods to help create a dynamic emergency response.

Delegates will also have access to the exhibition area to meet with leading industry innovators and discuss the latest technological solutions solve challenges and operational requirements.

Agenda topics to include:

  • Incorporating SOLAS into newbuild investments
  • Intelligent bridge systems
  • Alternative fuel solutions
  • Digitalisation and automation
  • Emergency management systems
  • Training for an emergency response
  • Reducing LSA failures
