By Captain Philip McCarter, Associate Dean, Marine, BCIT’s School of Transportation: In 2016, I had the opportunity to attend Posidonia in Athens, Greece, thanks to the support of the Vancouver International Maritime Centre (VIMC). Every two years, Posidonia takes the pulse of the global shipping industry and focuses on key issues for shipping. In conferences and seminars chaired by industry leaders, there is lively discussion and debate on issues, challenges and opportunities facing the industry.
