Fire Safety – Since our session in Monaco, we have had updates on fire safety with new guideline developments. Is there an increase in fires or is this just better reported? Are Lithium (Li-on) batteries a major concern and what are the solutions?

Panelists:  Laura Sherrod, Mike Pavluk, Pete Southgate, Richie Blake, Robert Ellis. Moderated by Corey Ranslem.

Navigational Safety – Collisions. Groundings. This seem to be happening on a regular basis. Is there a common cause? What lessons can be learned?

Panelists: Erin Ackor, Kelly Gordon, Mike Voight, Neil Maclaren. Moderated by Steve Monk

Crew Welfare – Lack of available and qualified crew – Crew retention onboard, with the issues of hours of work and rest. How do we attract new crew? Have crew left the industry and how can we get them back? What are the main challenges today? How do we solve these?

Panelists: Abi McGrath, Erin Ackor, Herb Magney, Kelly Gordon, Pete Southgate. Moderated by Graeme Lord.

Cocktail Hour to Follow.
