1st World Congress on Maritime Heritage
Connecting with the Past to Navigate the Future
13-15 March 2019 Resorts World Sentosa Singapore

Driven by the Consortium for International Maritime Heritage, Congress will initiate a coordinated effort to communicate the importance of our maritime heritage and current maritime endeavours.

It will bring together a diverse global array of maritime constituent groups, institutions, and stakeholders, and provide a unique opportunity for all to form new partnerships towards achieving a common objective: securing a sustainable future through a better understanding of our common maritime heritage.

Importantly the Congress coincides with and celebrates the 200th anniversary of the founding of the modern state of Singapore, a major global centre for shipping, finance and commerce.
