Q: How often do you hear of a not-for-profit shipping conference run by shipping professionals and not conference organisers? A: Not very. That’s right. So this one’s different right from the start.

And that’s not all. PYNDA promise you no profit-seeking conference organisers and no boring sales pitches dressed up as speeches. Spend a day among fellow professionals and colleagues from all parts of the industry – your chance to contribute and to hear some of the leading figures in our industry discussing how we got here, riding the storm and tomorrow’s world.

26th April at the IMO in London. Tickets have just gone on sale. As this is a not-for-profit event they’re only £250 so are likely to sell out fast:
