Join us in Charleston for the premier maritime industry event!

We’ve lined up best-in-industry speakers to address field-tested methods, emerging trends, and solutions to issues surrounding leadership, claims, safety, personnel, and operations.

The AEU National Forum allows attendees to engage with industry experts through a speaker series of keynote speaker sessions, specialized break-outs, and interaction with their peers.


Sessions designed for the needs of the maritime industry

If you're a leader at a shipyard, stevedoring operation, marine terminal operator, marine construction company or other waterfront business, you need to be here!

We'll start with a Welcome Reception at Ritual, located across the street from the Francis Marion, on Monday, April 29 at 5:30 PM. On Tuesday, April 30 we will host a full day of educational sessions, with a fun off-site activity for dinner. Wednesday, May 1 will include another half day of educational sessions, followed by an Awards Banquet, open to all attendees, to recognize the 2023 Safety Award Winners.
