Sea Asia
Conference Programme
The Asian Voice in a Global Industry

From the first event, the Sea Asia conference has always been one of the defining features of Sea Asia,
with exceptional content delivered by some of the industry’s most articulate speakers, from Asia and around
the world. Each edition includes fresh topics and treatments, intended to stimulate interest and make delegates
think a little differently about their industry. Sea Asia 2017 will be no different. With a new theme “The Asian Voice
in a Global Industry”, the growing importance of Asian maritime voice in a global setting is the focal point of this
year’s conference debates and discussions.
