Wellness at Sea Conference 2018

Following on from the success of the inaugural Wellness at Sea Conference, held in January 2017 in Singapore, Sailors’ Society will be delivering its second Wellness at Sea Conference in 2018.

To be held in London on 16 March 2018, at 99 City Road Conference Centre, the event aims to address crew wellness as an holistic approach and how this impacts on the health of the ship and ultimately the health of the ship owners balance sheet.

Presentations from academics and industry experts will look in depth at all aspects of crew wellness, including physical, emotional, intellectual and social. We will deliver results of recent research and also focus in on how ship operations impact on crew morale and retention including ship safety, digital communications and cyber awareness.
