The 2nd Annual Maritime Summit takes place in Durban from 29 – 31 March this year.

The theme is connecting ports, ships and communities in line with the theme chosen by the International Maritime Organization for this year’s International Maritime Day. The programme has two days of presentations and discussions under four broad topics of innovation, skills and training, enterprise development and marine manufacturing with the morning of the third day dedicated to port and city tours.

Some 300 South African and international delegates from the maritime sector, government and academia are expected to attend the event to deliberate ways of growing and promoting Durban’s maritime industry.


The Summit will again include a maritime industry exhibition and a careers programme. The summit culminates in a sailing competition at the Port of Durban.
