The SMN Vision

The core aim of the Smart Maritime Network is to change the narrative around interoperability, standardisation and harmonisation in maritime technology, and the wider transport infrastructure.

Following the successful launch of the Smart Maritime Network (SMN) and the Smart Maritime Council (SMC) in early 2019, four SMN conferences were held in Athens, Tokyo, Copenhagen and Singapore.

With over 700 participants across these four events, this first SMN conference in 2020 will continue to advance and promote the benefits of enhanced integration and data sharing among stakeholders within the maritime and transport logistics sectors; informing and educating on technological developments and innovations, while providing wider opportunities for relationship building, business development and knowledge sharing.

In 2020, SMN’s focus will expand to take an even closer look at the advantages of data sharing and exchange between all strategic elements of the supply chain value proposition – namely shipping, ports, terminals and logistics companies.

We will also look to build on and continue to develop the very first Smart Maritime Technology Integration Demonstrator which is being developed by the Smart Maritime Council Founding Members. The first public introduction of this initiative will take place at SMN Rotterdam.

Topics to be covered during SMN Rotterdam 2020 include:

• The next generation of digitalisation in maritime
• Harmonisation and standardisation – how the industry benefits by adopting standards
• Developing the Smart Maritime Technology Integration Demonstrator
• Evolving business models for an evolving industry
• Platforms and ecosystems to address maritime complexity
• Smart ports: redefining international trade
• Creating value for technology users
• The impact of regulatory compliance on digitalisation
• Roundtable discussion forums
• Plus – Technology Display Zones, where our key partners will have the opportunity to showcase and demonstrate their products and services to conference attendees and explain how they are working towards a smarter, better connected future of shipping.

There will be a Networking Party at the end of the day, kindly sponsored by Inmarsat, to further enable discussion and partnerships between all those attending.
