Danish Maritime Forum puts industry leaders to work

The centerpiece event was the second invitation-only Danish Maritime Forum. It breaks the mold of every other maritime event on the calendar.

That event isolates around 2,500 top business leaders, international political leaders and others up a Swiss mountain in winter to discuss the pressing problems facing the world.

At the Danish Maritime Forum, about 200 industry leaders from across the world found themselves cloistered in the Copenhagen Cruise Terminal under the distinctive guidance of moderator Chris Luebkeman, Director for Global Foresight and Innovation, Arup, USA,  and put to work in groups to work collaboratively to identify key challenges and opportunities.
