From its industry-led conference agenda and diverse supplier Expo, through to the ever-popular CrewConnect Global Awards, Seatrade Maritime CrewConnect Global has always kept pace with latest industry developments, ensuring it continues to serve the global crewing community.

Seatrade Maritime CrewConnect Global will return from 12 - 14 November 2024 to the city Manila, one of the world's most important crewing hubs.


The agenda at Crew Connect Global provides a crucial outlook on the current state of crewing and the factors shaping its future. Industry leaders and experts come together to share insight and best practise that can be applied in real-life situations.
