NAPA User Meeting 2023
We are excited to announce that the NAPA User Meeting 2023 will be taking place this Spring in Helsinki. This annual event brings together the NAPA family to share knowledge, network, and connect in person. Due to the pandemic situation, we had to skip a few years, but we are thrilled to be able to host the event again. This is the biggest NAPA event of the year and we are looking forward to seeing everyone there.
Join us in Helsinki this Spring for the NAPA User Meeting 2023!
The program will be packed with interesting presentations around the hot topics in the maritime industry, such as 3D model based approval, decarbonization and more efficient ship design process.
