This coming February 25, Vanguard will once again be holding the ShipTech Forum. This yearly, one-day conference is a meeting of various industry movers and members of the Royal Canadian Navy, Canadian Coast Guard and the shipbuilding field to talk about significant changes and innovations in the maritime and shipbuilding industry.
Aside from this, there will also be discussions that tackle recurring issues and challenges being faced by the Naval forces and the Coast Guard and how these can be given ample solutions. Ultimately, the aim is for impact to be created and implemented towards achieving possible and positive actions to address urgent concerns and improve technologies being used.
Part of doing this is to be able to meet with important organizations that will allow the exchange of ideas and introduction of high-tech product solutions which will become enablers to innovation. Below are some of the industry leaders and organizations you can meet at ShipTech Forum 2020:
