• 15+Global Experts
  •  Asia's ONLY conference on Arctic shipping
  •   10+Case Studies

Arctic industrialization is a reality, be it in terms of the Northern Sea Route opening up, marine infrastructure development or offshore oil and gas exploration. This has created massive opportunities for the marine and offshore industries as companies in Asia and Europe rush to exploit the ‘Arctic Advantage.’

The inaugural ‘Ice Class Vessels’ conference is the ONLY platform of its kind in Asia aimed at identifying business opportunities in the arctic shipping industry while addressing the technical, operational and commercial challenges involved.

The Russians have plied these waters for years, and a few European commercial ships have tested the route. But the arrival of the Koreans, with their large merchant fleet and big ambitions, could change the game. “We want to be one of the first to develop this in order to take a leading position when the route becomes more commercially viable,” says Kim Sung Ho, an official at the Ministry of Oceans and Fisheries.
