Alongside an international exhibition, the Sea Asia conference has always been one of the defining features of the event.

A new feature and discussion format in the form of a Parliamentary Debate on “This House believes that the best days of the private independent shipowner are over” was chaired by Andreas Sohmen-Pao, Chairman, BW Group Ltd and Chairman, Singapore Maritime Foundation, and drew much fruitful discussion.
The Offshore Marine Forum: Challenges and Opportunities discussion was an extension of the Sea Asia Offshore Marine Forum held during Singapore Maritime Week 2016 and took place on the 3rd day of Sea Asia 2017. Moderator by Geir Sjurseth, Managing Director, Global Head Offshore Finance, DVB Bank SE, the panelist evaluated the current energy market and what lay ahead for the offshore marine sector.
