From Titanic to Concordia

FROM TITANIC TO CONCORDIA: THE ACHILLES HEEL OF CRUISE SHIPS

Join us for an evening of discussion and fine dining at our 2012 Cadwallader event on Monday 26th November at the Gibson Hall, City of London.

Ship safety is never far from the Centre’s agenda, not least in a year when the Concordia disaster and the centenary of the sinking of the Titanic remind us that major incidents persist, with ever increasing and wider reaching consequences.

100 years on from Titanic, we shall explore the faults and failures in the safety of 21st Century cruise ships, and what has been learnt from previous disasters. With two leading experts, the discussion will be chaired by Lord Clarke of Stone-cum-Ebony.

Maritime professionals, members of the Centre and their distinguished guests will have the opportunity, over a sumptuous dinner at the fabulous Gibson Hall, to listen to experts’ views, raise questions, make observations and converse with fellow professionals.

Please put the date, Monday, November 26th in the diary. Full details of the event will follow.
