Tapping into the energy of like-minded individuals

There is nothing like being in a room of people who, like you, are willing to take time away from the office to learn something new. When you sit in a TMS conference, you will quickly discover that you are not alone in wanting to improve your skills and bring something back to your office or organisation.

Invest in yourself

Recognising that you still have things to learn, and can get better, is an important step towards career development. So, attending a TMS conference is an investment in yourself, as well as your company. When you purchase a TMS conference delegate pass, you are investing in personal growth.

Learn from the best

The speakers at TMS conference are not just industry leaders with years of experience and deep insights into the shipping industry. They are also engaging, inspiring thinkers who are passionate about sharing what they have learned and helping others enhance their skills. At TMS conferences, the speakers don’t just present what is happening right now. They also look ahead to what is around the corner. These forward-looking insights from the best in the business will help you plan future strategies.

Share what you learn

We send all delegates copies of all the speaker slides. So, as well as keeping them as a permanent record, you can use them to pass on what you learned to the rest of your team.
