Navis will now host a virtual event in November 2021 and an in-person Navis World in October 2022.
Navis has decided to postpone its Navis World conference in San Francisco, originally scheduled for Nov. 1-4, 2021, until October 24-27, 2022. Navis, which is now owned by Accel-KKR, will outline its strategy and vision for the future at an online event called Navis Connect being held over November 9-11 2021.
Rescheduling is necessary due to the Delta variant of COVID-19 and the restriction on international travel to the United States.
“Our customers and employees have made many sacrifices and overcome many challenges over the last 17 months, and we were hoping to celebrate that with an in-person return of our highly anticipated Navis World 2021,” said Benoit de la Tour, President of Navis. “Out of an abundance of caution, we made the unfortunate but necessary decision to hold off for one more year and continue to prioritise the health and safety of our customers. We look forward to showcasing many of the scheduled themes and sessions through Navis Connect as well as moving forward with our Inspire Awards, which will give recognition to our incredible roster of customers who continue to change the face of our industry, even in the most tumultuous of times. We hope to see everyone online in November and in person in 2022.”
“Details are still being finalised for Navis Connect, a virtual conference that will be an abridged version of Navis World, with a mix of big picture trends as well as updates to Navis vision, insights and interactive sessions on Navis Cloud and product development initiatives, following the company’s acquisition by Accel-KKR earlier this year. The event will be held to accommodate customers in different time zones and the full agenda, list of speakers and registration details will be announced later in September,” Navis concluded.
