Seminar talks about future

Aug 1, 2013 by Guest Writer

Communications integrator e3 Systems hosted a seminar just before the Antibes Yacht Show in late April that included a keynote presentation by Waguih Ishak from Corning Glass who described how life will shortly be transformed and governed by interactive glass.


The seminar’s emphasis was on “Future Technology for Yachts” and there was discussion on how the needs of today’s “connected” society impacts upon life aboard a yacht, both for owners and crew. There was also debate about the fast changing nature of communications and entertainment systems onboard.


Presentations were given by speakers from Global IP, Van Berge Henegouwen, Monaco Telecom and e3 Systems, which plans to make this an annual event.
