This year’s program is designed to pull together thought leaders from across the maritime sector to discuss the topics that are defining the present and future of the entire sector. What types of innovations are changing how stakeholders do business? How are market conditions impacting the way operators and builders move forward?  These questions and plenty more will be answered and explored on the stage at Workboat Show and we want you to be part of those conversations.


Presentation Formats:
This year we are expanding the programming to offer more content to our audience in various formats: panel discussions, case studies, longer-format presentations, and round table discussions. While you may request a preferred format during submission, flexibility may be required based on your expertise and program requirements.

We are looking for submissions of both high level presentations that provide a broad overview on topics as well as low level presentations that provide a deeper dive into a topic’s details.


Topics can include but are not limited to:

  • autonomous vessels
  • engineering insights
  • green technology
  • offshore wind
  • marine surveying
  • new marine technology
  • propulsion
  • regulations
  • shipbuilding and shipyards
  • workforce development


Deadline for submissions: April 15, 2024
