Navis will hold its 12th biennial event in San Francisco over March 25-28, 2019.
Navis has announced registration is now open for ”customer attendees, speakers and sponsors at the company’s 12th biennial user conference, Navis World 2019”, taking place at the Palace Hotel in San Francisco.
With the single largest installed TOS base in the market, Navis World attracts a large group of terminal operators from around the globe. Navis promises that the event will “provide insights on industry trends, operational best practices and demonstrate the most advanced technologies being used today to optimize terminal and supply chain processes”.
“As customer expectations continue to rise and digitalization and automation become more prominent in our industry, we would like to continue to lead these conversations around the future of ocean shipping,” Navis noted.
Navis occupies a unique position in the container terminal market. It is owned by Cargotec an a sister company to Kalmar. Navis’ customers require that its software connects to Kalmar’s competitor products. Though the event is invite-only, recent Navis World events have been attended by other equipment OEMs and automation suppliers. For some of its customers, the openness of Navis World and the breadth of suppliers at the event is an important indicator of Cargotec’s willingness to keep Navis TOS as an “agnostic” application as the industry moves forward with automation and integration becomes more important.
For 2019 Navis is promoting its conference as “the opportunity for marine terminal executives, supply chain experts, directors, managers and IT personnel from around the world to present case studies on their latest innovations and operational processes. Additionally, attendees will gain valuable insights on data digitalization, learn the importance of connectivity and collaboration and hear from leading performers in the ocean supply chain about how they are working to increase productivity and efficiency”.
“Navis has always strived to provide our customers, partners and industry leaders with a forum to discuss new strategies for operational efficiency and keep them up to date about cutting-edge industry innovations through our flagship Navis World event,” said Benoit de la Tour, President, Navis. “As customer expectations continue to rise and digitalization and automation become more prominent in our industry, we would like to continue to lead these conversations around the future of ocean shipping.”
Navis World is currently accepting applications for speakers and sponsorships, further details can be found here.
The event also features the “Navis Inspire Awards”, where Navis recognises customers that are driving change in the industry.
