Our Transatlantic Shipbuilding & Maritime Industry Conference will bring industry experts and stakeholders together to discuss current trends and opportunities in the rapidly growing shipbuilding industry. Keynote presentations from both German and American speakers will highlight the characteristics of the maritime industry in both countries as well as the potentials for collaboration.

With its immense importance to the U.S. maritime economy, the Gulf Coast offers extensive business opportunities in the shipbuilding and marine sectors. The discussions will focus on how to improve the environmental footprint which has proven to be one of the major challenges in the industry, with new emerging technologies to reduce carbon emissions and increase overall efficiency. 
This event is part of a German delegation taking place in Louisiana and Mississippi from June 26 – 30, 2023. The conference will promote the dialogue between actors from both sides of the Atlantic, and offer visiting German delegates the opportunity to present their companies’ technologies and solutions to the US market. 

This event is free with registration.
Complimentary breakfast and a networking lunch will be provided.
