The annual forum brought together roughly 150 participants from 17 countries representing industry, academia and governmental agencies. The forum was hosted by the National University Odessa Maritime Academy, a member of the International Association of Maritime Universities (IAMU).

WMU was represented at the forum by Associate Professor Michael Manuel, Head of Maritime Education and Training (MET), who made a presentation entitled Vocational and Academic MET: Trends, Opportunities and Challenges and Professor Takeshi Nakazawa, Executive Director of IAMU and part-time WMU faculty member, whose presentation was entitled IAMU Activities to Improve Quality of MET in Higher Education.
