We are very pleased to announce the return of ShipCon 2021 following the postponement caused by the pandemic last year. Please save the dates 19 October to 5 November 2021 to join us for a virtual and interactive conference.

YoungShip Rotterdam have put in a tremendous amount of work into the planning and curating an exciting online program for 2021.
