MASS at Moorgate


Tuesday 18 October 2022 - 11:45 - 19:30pm

Whether you are involved in MASS, USVs, UUVs, AUVs or AROVs, this one-day program has been developed to highlight what industry leaders tell us are the most significant talking points for those engaged in or investing in the autonomous vessel sector. We therefore aim to provide a setting for a select group of industry insiders to discuss those points and potential solutions and opportunities.

The event will proceed on a Chatham House Rules basis to encourage honest and open
discussions between stakeholders throughout the supply chain.

The day will start with lunch between 11.45am and 12.30pm and finish with networking drinks between 5.00pm and 7.00pm and will be held at our London offices - Stephenson Harwood LLP, 1 Finsbury Circus, London EC2M 7SH.
