This Week In Maritime was launched in April 2020 as a way to bring maritime industry professionals together to share insights into the challenges they are dealing with related to or flowing from the COVID-19 pandemic. First held weekly, the platform moved to a biweekly format in October 2020. The platform is unique because the conversations are free, informal, and non-recorded. Audience participation is strongly encouraged, and the audience ranges from 60-100 people per session. This Week in Maritime was founded by Alexandra Anagnostis-Irons, Total Marine Solutions; Jeanne Grasso, Blank Rome LLP; Kathy Metcalf, Chamber of Shipping of America; Karin Orsel, MF Shipping Group and Consuelo Rivero, ERSHIP Grupo.
With the shifting focus from addressing the immediate challenges of COVID-19 to operational and regulatory changes, digitalization and the long-term impact of COVID-19 on the industry, the founders want to expand the platform to what you see today - a multi-channel platform that for expert and non-traditional voices to share ideas and dynamic thinking to foster innovation. A place for discussion and thought leadership our goal is to create an open space for new ideas, new voices, new thought leadership, and a platform for innovation.
