Sustainability and the impact of ESG requirements on shipping companies and their supply chain will again feature heavily in this year's programme, as well as deeper discussions and exploration of the question 'What does "first-class" maritime procurement look like in 2024?!'

IMPA will introduce a NEW FORMAT to this year's event, which will see subject introduction presentations followed by panel discussions that will see stakeholders join and discuss a broad range of topics in an open forum. These engaging, creative and open discussions will feature key facilitators covering a wide variety of supply chain management subjects and enable everyone to get involved and have their say, ask questions, challenge ideas and learn!

Don't miss this one-day event in the centre of Hamburg that concludes with an after-day drinks reception for a more relaxed environment to catch up and talk.

This friendly but focused event provides a format that offers top-level presentations alongside time for questions and discussions throughout the day.

We are pleased to welcome Steven Jones, CEO of The Sustainable Shipping Initiative (SSI), as a Keynote Speaker at this year's IMPA Hamburg event!

Steven is a former seafarer who has worked across the maritime industry and is now entrusted with driving positive change, facilitation, and progress in sustainability.
