Karen Purnell was invited to give the closing keynote speech at ShipTech Middle East, part of the Middle East Shipping Forum, which was held in Dubai from 27th-28th November. The event, now in its 11th year, covered a diverse range of topics related to technological advances within the shipping industry, global regulations and new fuels to meet the 2020 sulphur cap deadline. Karen’s presentation brought together risks underlying these new developments with ITOPF’s work and emphasised looking for opportunities in a changing but exciting future. The conference attracted about 50 delegates, including shipowners and managers, classification societies and the service sector, and provided a useful update on some of the key drivers affecting our Members and Associates.
