European Marine Engineering Conference & Awards

The European Marine Engineering Conference has not only changed its name from the "Annual Marine Propulsion Conference" but will be held in Amsterdam in 2016. This event's focus is to address the operational, technological and engineering challenges facing ship operators today. 

Riviera has rebranded its successful Annual Marine Propulsion Conference the European Marine Engineering Conference to better reflect the range and breadth of topics and technologies covered across our two day programme.

After nine highly successful years in London we are debuting the new conference in Amsterdam. The new location will draw a greater number of continental owner/operators and at the same time is readily accessible to our loyal supporters from all over the world. 

Our format retains successful elements of previous programmes but also sees the introduction of some new and exciting elements.

  • Day one is themed: On The Agenda – Achieving operational excellence in the year ahead
  • Day two is themed: On The Horizon – Achieving operational excellence over the next five years
  • Findings from The Marine Propulsion Industry Survey sponsored by ExxonMobil are woven into the programme 
  • Summary survival guides at the end of each presentation, detailing strategies for coping with the key issues 
  • The Doug Woodyard Memorial Debate. A debate structured to involve two opposing teams – as well as delegates – in discussing a controversial industry motion. One team will argue for the motion. The other against. The winning team will be decided by audience vote. The intention is that the debate reflects the journalism of the late Doug Woodyard: informed, direct, opinionated. Doug was a former editor of Marine Propulsion and respected throughout industry 
  • A reinvigorated dinner and expanded awards boosted by greater industry involvement.
