Future Technology for Yachts Seminar: Connecting to your Future (22 February 2013)

e3 Systems are hosting this original and innovative event at the Automobile Club de Monaco on the 17th April. Superyachts have always been early adopters of new technology and their owners’ needs are light years ahead of other market sectors. The world of technology continues to move apace and improvements in the arena of communications now enable yacht users to stay connected wherever they are in the world; this ability to stay connected is crucial for the successful implementation of the technology of the future.
For this one day seminar e3 is joined by superyacht technology specialists whose aim is to inform, inspire and entertain as they guide participants through their vision of a “connected future”.
The keynote speaker is Dr. Waguih S. Ishak, Division Vice President and Director of Corning Research and Development. Corning has a culture of innovation and is a world leader in industrial research and development. Few can fail to be awed by the YouTube videos showing Corning’s vision of the future entitled “A Day Made of Glass”. The title of Dr. Ishak’s talk is “A Vision for the Connected World: Glass is a Key Material for the Future, in your Yacht, Car, Home, School, Office and on the Go”.
Other speakers are Ivo Terhell from Global IP, Jean Philippe Alfonsi from Monaco Telecom, Susanne Mensink from Van Berge Henegouwen and Tony Holland from e3 Systems. Their presentations include Satellite Broadband – Managing Future Expectations; 4G – The Game Changer in High Speed Data; Moving Pictures – The Future of TV and Video On-board; and Connecting Yachts for the Future – Today.
Roger Horner, MD of e3 Systems commented: “The future of technology is something that fascinates us all and we wanted to create an event that explores this topic in relation to our industry. The Automobile de Monaco Club provides the perfect venue, linking the passion and emotion of sporting history with high-tech performance systems of the future. This is just the first in a series of technology seminars we are planning.”
The seminar runs from 9.00 am till 5.00 pm with lunch served in the members’ dining room. Tickets are €200 and are available directly from e3 Systems. (News Release e3 Systems, 21 February 2013)
