For the first time, the industry comes together for the launch of the 15th Singapore Maritime Week at the official Opening Ceremony, followed by the 15th Singapore Maritime Lecture and the Singapore International Maritime Awards (IMA). Together, these signature events will be presented in a hybrid format, with participants on-site and online via live streaming
Themed "New Frontiers, Shifting Paradigms", SMW 2021 will look at the three pillars of digitalisation, decarbonisation and talent.
The 15th Singapore Maritime Lecture invites experts to discuss on opportunities for growth with the transformation of international trade, the disruption of business models and focus on maritime sustainability.
The keynote speaker for the event is Mr Yee Yang Chien, President and Group CEO of MISC Group, followed by a panel discussion with Ms Vandita Pant, Chief Commercial Officer, BHP, Ms Pang Mei Yee, Global Practice lead for Supply Chain and Analytics Head of Asia Pacific, DHL and Mr Simon Kuik, President, Association of Singapore Marine Industries.
The Singapore IMA is an award ceremony that recognises individuals and companies who have made outstanding contributions to Singapore's development as a global hub port and leading international maritime centre. The Singapore International Maritime Awards is a key event under the Singapore Maritime Week. First organised in 2004, the Singapore IMA has grown into a key event biennially during SMW.
