Autonomous ships and mooring, smart harbours, sensing and management of freight, passengers and workers, optimized vessels for energy efficient operation index, insurance, and shore systems integration such as traffic and delivery. These are just a few of the advancements in developing sustainable maritime smart products.

Dramatic changes are already taking place in this space: sensor networks are deployed, vessels become smarter, systems are established for monitoring and optimizing, and AI becomes integrated in traditional transport and logistics practices.

We aim to uncover the best practices, smartest solutions, and future considerations for companies and industries developing sustainable transport & logistics solutions in the maritime sector.

A conference at one of the most important maritime transport hubs in danish history – Marstal, Ærø:

Design Smart Products has always been an alternative conference, offering a uniquely engaged experience with hands-on workshops, few, but impactful talks, and facilitated networking. We continue this practice, and situate the conference specifically in a place with a beautiful history and a stunning future – Motorfabrikken Marstal. Denmark’s portal to the world, Marstal has provided motors to ships all over the world and has acted as an international port for decades. After laying dormant for some years, the Marstal Motorfabrik has been revived by the energy of 3 incredible women, and we partner with them and the community of Marstal to offer a remarkable conference experience.

What’s covered?

Over two days we’ll experience the spirit of Marstal, working with the original Motormænd, participating in hands-on workshops, and hearing from and debating with world-class leaders in transport and logistics about their take on the current and future scenarios in this domain featuring the following themes:

  • State of the art in maritime transportation, smart ships, smart ports and real time monitoring – with a sustainable framing, how do we both monitor and react better, whilst creating better conditions for companies, ships, shore and the environment?
  • The IoT is here, now what? How to understand, discuss and implement the IoT while considering standards and interoperability in a maritime setting.
  • Throughout all themes, we will address the question: How can we approach smart maritime transport and logistics considering sustainability?

Who should attend this conference:

  • Business developers, C-Levels, and influencers interested in the new smart domain of maritime transport & logistics.
  • Sustainable transportation evangelists
  • Traffic and Fleet Management professionals
  • Technology users, developers, early adopters, enthusiasts
  • People working with the IoT, sensor technologies and monitoring

It’s about the journey, not the destination

Starting the journey in Copenhagen, a bus will pick up conference participants and make a special stop in Odense to ensure that our partners from both Sjaelland and Fyn are part of the event. We’ll take the Ærø ferry, and begin a two day adventure together, experiencing all that Marstal has to offer, meeting boat builders, and the original motormænd, and taking in new knowledge, making new friends, and creating lasting collaborations.
