Kongsberg Simulation Conference 2019

August 2, 2019

A Voyage of Discovery

The main focus of this year’s event will be based on exploring new simulation solutions and training possibilities. Highlighting increased safety, sustainability and digitalization initiatives in the maritime industry requires new perspectives, training tools and methods for training providers. We would like to share our thoughts, product news and updates with you, and have also invited several simulator users to share their valuable experience.

In addition, this year we have the pleasure of cooperating with Simwave for a trip to its training facility in Barendrecht. Here we will receive an insight into how Simwave uses KONGSBERG simulators to educate and train its course participants as well as enjoy a tour of the facility, which is fully equipped with our latest K-Sim Simulators.

With a packed conference program, our goal is to facilitate the sharing of ideas in order to enhance the collective knowledge of the international simulation community. We look forward to setting out for a Voyage of Discovery and spending some inspiring conference days together with you.

Experience a unique venue and the beauty of former times

The conference will take place on board the historic ocean liner SS Rotterdam, built in 1953 for the Holland America Line and ideal for our Voyage of Discovery. Nowadays, the ship functions as a hotel and congress centre, and is moored in Rotterdam harbour. We encourage you to book accommodation as soon as possible in order to secure one of the cabins on board the ship.
