John Adams to chair CrewConnect Global 2020

CrewConnect Global (CCG) takes place virtually in November, and as in previous years, V.Ships UK Managing Director John Adams will serve as chair.

As the largest and most established event in the crewing industry, CCG features new perspectives on recruitment strategies and seafarer safety and wellbeing. The event brings together over 500 delegates each year as well as some of the industry’s leading speakers.

John, who has been chairing the event for more than 10 years, has been closely involved in shaping the agenda: “CCG offers a unique opportunity to truly lead the discussion on important topics within our industry. I believe that collaboration, dialogue and lifelong learning will help our industry become safer, more efficient and a better place to work for everyone involved.

“My involvement with CCG goes back many years and I have enjoyed developing the conference within the industry and involving various organisations, giving our audience the chance to have meaningful discussions with representatives of the International Transport Workers’ Federation, International Chamber of Shipping, International Labour Organization, Intertanko and various flag states, to name a few. In the midst of the current COVID-19 crewing crisis, CrewConnect Global is more relevant and essential than ever.”

The conference takes place online from 23rd to 26th November 2020. For further information visit
