IHMA 2022 CONGRESS YOUNG MARITIME PROFESSIONALS’ INNOVATION PITCHING COMPETITION
Congratulations to our inaugural IHMA Pitching Competition Winner, Nick Bonser and finalists, Kayode Akinrinlola, Ricky Rouse, Jay Stephens, Isabel Waterfall & Matt Rattenbury
The maritime industry has a highly skilled, passionate, and inspiring new generation of talent across the sector. With global maritime freight transportation revenue expected to grow to over $205 billion in 2023, now is the time to identify, promote and advance the ideas of these disruptors and future leaders.
Do you have a game-changing idea that could disrupt the maritime industry?
Returning in 2022, the IHMA Young Maritime Professionals Innovation Pitching Competition invites all maritime professionals, 35 years and under, to submit an innovative idea that could disrupt the industry with the next wave of change to shape a better, safer future.
Finalists will have the opportunity to present their ideas to industry leaders at the IHMA 2022 Congress with the winner announced at the Gala Dinner.
Submit your concept for an opportunity to pitch your innovative idea to today’s port leaders. Young maritime professionals* of all disciplines are invited to submit a 400-600word abstract detailing your idea.
The maritime industry continues to make significant economic, environmental, and social contributions. Reflecting this, we invite concepts that target any aspect of port and marine operations– from technical and engineering to customer service, strategic business planning, marketing, and technological opportunities. If you have an idea that may increase the industry’s safety, improve engineering or maintenance practices, better industry connectivity or ultimately offer suppliers and customers an improved service – we want to hear from you.
Submit your innovative idea, large or small and contribute to maritime’s future.
Entries are open until 21 January 2022.
