Maritime Risk Symposium (MRS) 2024

Date: Jun 11, 2024 to Jun 14, 2024
Time: 0800-1700
Location: Glasgow Hall, Room 102 

The Maritime Risk Symposium is an annual 2½ day conference in which government and maritime industry leaders, port representatives, researchers, and solution providers convene to examine current and emerging threats to maritime security. Maritime security is increasingly at risk during the current period of great-power competition and ongoing conflicts, especially in the Grey Zone. The maritime industry now finds itself at the center of attention for the U.S. Coast Guard, U.S. Navy, U.S. Marine Corps, U.S. Merchant Marine, inter-agency coordination, state and local governments, and international stakeholders. Our shared goal: Building unity of purpose to achieve unity of effort.
