ABOUT THE CONFERENCE

Enabling e-Navigation: Today and Tomorrow

Building the Infrastructure & Reaping the Benefits

About the 2019 Conference

Again organized under the auspices of IALA and this year hosted by RTCM the conference is being held in the heart of the vibrant port of Tampa and will focus upon the broadening application of the maritime information environment that e-navigation is creating. Presentations will address key infrastructure issues that are the foundation for future developments, the benefits that are already being derived and which hold the promise of greater benefits in the near future. Delegates will also learn about the evolving tools available to mariners, and about significant governmental plans and programs that will affect the maritime community.

Development of e-Navigation is proceeding rapidly and managers in all segments of the maritime community should stay abreast of those developments for many reasons, including their overall impact as well as the potential effect upon regulatory actions.

The Florida Aquarium is ideally suited for hosting our meeting and available for tours by you and your guest. We’ve arranged for near-by superb affordable accommodations. We’ll have a full enjoyable and informative program with many opportunities for informal exchanges during the program, meals and receptions with exhibitors and sponsors.

Delegates will be able to discuss presentation topics and much more, in a final plenary session to create recommendations about the development and application of e-Navigation for submission to maritime administrations and standards setting organizations.
