NEXT GEN - Background
One day NEXT GENERATION Workshops and two day NEXT GENERATION Conferences deliver unique opportunities to improve safety.
NEXT GEN provides an independent platform for maritime organisations to address relevant issues and share knowledge between sectors.
NEXT GEN objective is to bring together an international group of experts to identify problems and solutions for the sub IMO / sub 24 metre sector.
NEXT GEN forum enables people with genuine experience to 'pass it on' maintaining and improving best practice across all maritime sectors.
Support for NEXT GEN events has been excellent from end-user organisations, maritime legislators and the marine industry worldwide.
Over 80 maritime professionals attended the 2018 NEXT GENERATION Man Overboard Prevention & Recovery Workshop in Southampton UK
Workshop Lead, John Haynes said:
NEXT GEN sessions focus on current issues, plus emerging areas of concern that operators may need to face tomorrow. In a changing world the use of technology is increasing for many organisations, but basic safety remains high on the agenda for professional mariners.
