SSA member Shock Mitigation are running 3 one day events at the Grand Harbour Hotel in the port of Southampton on 24 25 26 October. Providing both knowledge and networking, these NEXT GENERATION Workshops will be relevant to many SSA members.

Workshop Lead and Shock Mitigation MD, John Haynes, said, ‘In recent years less people are expected to do more work and time is becoming scarce for everyone in the marine industry. These focused one day Workshops are designed to deliver a unique mix of sessions that bring together end-user organisations and industry solution providers.’

The innovative Programme and outstanding group of Presenters blends key decision makers, commercial and military stakeholders plus maritime technology experts. The Workshops provide a unique forum with lively panel discussions that address challenges and opportunities for the sub IMO / sub 24m professional sector.

John Haynes added, ‘Feedback from recent NEXT GEN Workshops has highlighted hot topics for further discussion. In recent weeks I have personally asked a number of organisations what are their most current and burning issues. From this we have put together a cutting edge programme. You can attend for a single day and get some really relevant insight.’

On Tuesday 24 October the NEXT GEN Shock Mitigation Solutions Workshop focuses on: ‘Shock mitigation by all means.’ This is highly relevant to professional and military organisations, boat builders, equipment manufacturers, re-fit yards and service providers.
