Seatrade Maritime Salvage & Wreck, which is supported by The International Salvage Union (ISU) as the UK’s leading conference for the salvage and wreck removal industry, is gearing up for its eagerly anticipated return to London, where from 6 – 7 December 2023 a topical conference agenda will deliver expert insight and analysis on the most pertinent factors influencing the salvage and wreck recovery industry.

The agenda for the 2023 event has been carefully shaped in consultation with members of the Seatrade Maritime Salvage & Wreck advisory committee and will offer a comprehensive outlook on the current state of the industry, while providing delegates with the opportunity to explore how evolving legal frameworks, ESG and regulation change will impact the future of risk management and prevention.

“As those involved in risk management, prevention and emergency response face new, complex challenges borne by the ever-evolving modern world, we find ourselves at a pivotal moment for the salvage and wreck removal industry,” said Chris Morley, Group Director - Seatrade Maritime. “The full programme at Seatrade Maritime Salvage & Wreck 2023 will explore key industry themes including the influence of ESG and future fuels; how the modern world is impacting salvage operations; the appetite for legal instruments; future training requirements; closer collaboration opportunities and regulatory developments. Each session will be led by a dynamic panel of industry experts, which we look forward to revealing very soon,” continued Morley

The agenda for Seatrade Maritime Salvage & Wreck 2023 is now available to explore. Key highlights include:

  • Salvors’ Liability in the Modern World: Risk assessment, technical guidance, and legal challenges
  • Effective Casualty Management: A joint session with maritime authorities and industry
  • Emergency Response to Ships Powered by Future Fuels

“We are really excited to serve the salvage and wreck removal community with a topical and insightful agenda that has been directly influenced by the extensive knowledge of the Seatrade Maritime Salvage & Wreck advisory committee, of whom we express our sincere gratitude towards,” continued Morley.
