NEXT GEN Organiser and Conference Chairman, John Haynes said, 'The 2018 programme builds on our experience of working with literally hundreds of genuine experts globally and recognises that emerging technologies, including the use of electric drives and lithium ion batteries along with the arrival of autonomous systems, are accelerating major changes.'

Boat builders and specialist component manufacturers now recognise that they need to work together to develop next generation power systems that fit the rapidly changing requirements of modern fleets. The unique knowledge gained from these presentations and panel discussions will help to shape long term decisions that lead to improvements for in-service equipment and procurement of next generation vessels.

John Haynes added, ‘We focus on viable innovation and using people’s time effectively. We also know that having the right people onboard is essential and there is no substitute for meeting the experts face to face when asking the hard questions. We are really proud to welcome onboard this great group of maritime professionals, solution providers and innovators.'

The unique programme was relevant to Workboats, Pilot Boats, Patrol Boats, Search & Rescue, Wind Farm Support, Fishing, Survey Vessels, Superyacht Tenders, Ports, Marinas and Harbours. Conference attendees include Equipment Manufacturers, Boat Builders, Service Providers, Designers, Classification Societies, Government Organisations, Search & Rescue.
