Agenda Session

Shipyard CEO Discussion: U.S. Shipyard Market Outlook, Project Capacities, Workforce Hurdles

Nov 12 2024

1:30 PM - 2:15 PM CST

Main Stage

One of the biggest issues shipyards face today, if not the biggest, is recruiting and retaining qualified and engaged workers. Hear what some yards are doing to mitigate this hurdle including Bollinger launching ‘Shipfitter Bootcamp’. Is it time to rethink shipyards and reintegrate them into urban and suburban areas to appeal to a wider range of demographics and people? The work is there, but the hands to build are lacking significantly.
