On the evening before ShipCon, SANDS hosted a pre-event at their gorgeous offices at Skansekaia in Ålesund. 34 YoungShip members and ShipCon attendees from near and far were in attendance. The attendees were treated to an insightful talk about maritime law and expectations surrounding autonomous shipping. Food and drinks were served and members were able to appreciate the views and network. The event was a great way to kick start the ShipCon conference, and gave a chance to those unable to attend ShipCon to also take part in the discussions around the new technology introduction and to ponder industry challenges.
