ANPRA has been organizing maritime and river safety events since 2008. During the year 2021, five events were held in conjunction with other public and private organizations.
The First Congress of Lessons Learned was held in April 2022 with the participation of more than 140 people, 10 countries, 7 exhibitors and 25 sponsors and soon we will be part of the XVIII Conference of the Latin American Society of Oil Monobuoy and Terminal Operators (SLOM) in October.
For the year 2023 we have decided to organize and develop the Second Congress of Lessons Learned, also in person, in April in the city of Cartagena de Indias. We will have guests and speakers of various nationalities, understanding that the integration of maritime activities between different regions of the world produces a safer daily operation.
In addition, the event has a diversity in the nature of the organizers, including government entities, universities, companies, unions and non-governmental organizations, in order to have perspectives from all areas and promote a functional integration of maritime and river activities to prevent accidents at sea and reduce risks. Pilots experience risks on a daily basis, which if they materialize in accidents or incidents seriously affect us, hence the motto, "We are all losers when an accident occurs".
It is important to discuss issues related to economic pressure and how it can affect safety in navigation, the growth in the size of ships with higher speed than the infrastructure of channels and port facilities, the provisions of advanced nations that changed after the occurrence of accidents, the new prospects for the development of the maritime sector, among many topics from the points of view of lawyers, experts, authorities, engineers and pilots from different countries.
To stimulate cooperation and exchange of experience among states, organizations and individuals to ensure the highest degree of advancement in the formalities and procedures for safe navigation, maneuvering and operation in maritime and river waters that will lead directly to the prevention of accidents.
Up to 300 people, from different languages with simultaneous translation into English. Participants may be interested in navigation, ship maneuvering, pilotage, tugboats, port facilities, officials from maritime traffic stations, hydrography, oceanography, port captaincy, government officials, engineering, students, professionals from all areas, merchant seamen, naval officers and in general anyone related to maritime and fluvial activities.
