Join us for the Operational & Technical Conference and our 25th Anniversary of DBTG  on 11&12 November 2024.

This will be a very interactive and festive edition, taking place in 2 iconic London institutions: IMO headquarters and The Shard. With a guided tour in the buildings of the International Maritime Organization (IMO) to get introduced to the working of IMO.

Celebrating our 25th Anniversary, we have pleasure in announcing a festive gala dinner in another iconic building: London’s Trinity House. Trinity House is the General Lighthouse Authority for England, Wales, the Channel Islands and Gibraltar. The organization is responsible for a range of general aids to navigation, ‘signs of the sea’, from lighthouses to radar beacons. The protecting Master of Trinity House is HRH Princess Anne.

Please be aware that we have chosen for another set-up in days as we start the first day (11th ) at 09.00 (9 am) and the second day (12th) we finish the conference with a festive gala dinner in Trinity House. The Golf Tournament will take place on the 3rd day, i.e. 13 November.
