One Plenary Conference - Seven Focused Tech Workshops - Two Nights of Networking Events

Three Days of SMAGIC Moments

The SMAGIC Word

The inaugural Smart Maritime Annual Global Innovation Congress (#SMAGIC) will take place in Copenhagen from 26-28 September 2023.

This one-of-a-kind event will explore maritime technology and innovation through curated content and networking opportunities. The Ministry of Foreign Affairs/Invest in Denmark will kindly host the plenary SMN conference on 27 September, at Eitgveds Pakhus, with additional official support from the Danish Maritime Authority (DMA), Danish Shipping, Danish Maritime, BIMCO, and WISTA Denmark.

Building on the success of previous Smart Maritime Network (SMN) annual conferences worldwide, in Tokyo, Singapore, Dubai, Miami, Rotterdam, and Athens, SMAGIC '23 will offer a unique programme of events exploring the latest in maritime digitalisation and innovation.

During the three-day event, some of the industry's leading technology providers will host events focused on their own individual areas of expertise, aligned with the wider overview of maritime digitalisation to be discussed at the SMN plenary conference. These seminars will take place on 26 & 28 September at NH Collection Copenhagen, located next to the plenary conference venue at the Ministry of Foreign Affairs' venue.

SMAGIC will also feature two industry networking evenings: a Welcome Reception at Copenhagen's City Hall on 26 September, and Night SMAGIC, led by some of SMN’s key partners, at selected venues across Copenhagen on 27 September. These events will provide an opportunity for delegates, speakers, partners, and invited guests to connect in an informal setting.

We look forward to seeing you and sharing the SMAGIC with you! For more information, please contact us at: cathy.hodge@smartmaritimenetwork.com.

    Unlocking network diversity towards achieving 100% connectivity uptime onboard
    Reducing the complexity of satcom hardware integration allows fleet managers and service providers to embrace network diversity and deliver even more reliable connectivity to ships, wherever they are.

    Come explore the topic of network diversity with a focus on simplifying the hardware approach so that it’s easier and less costly for fleet managers and service providers to answer industry demand for seamlessly integrated hybrid maritime connectivity services.

    This seminar will discuss developing a long-term communications system strategy, covering everything from measuring the criticality of specific application types and the most suitable carrier for each, to reducing the installation and operational complexity of multi-antenna installations needed for truly diverse networks.
