The Forum provides an interactive platform
 on the topic of Operational Excellence, Best Industry Practices and Sustainability linking shipping companies, charterers, government and non-government industry associations, classification societies, P&I Clubs, Registries, technology & service providers and the financial and investment community.


We are delighted to see how the industry has embraced this Forum.
 Last year, Senior Executives from 26 leading shipping companies, 4 major classification societies, as well as charterers, financiers and key industry organizations came together to discuss how Best Industry Practices translate into tangible commercial, operational and financial competitive advantages. The extensive shipping company participation in the Forum is key, as ultimately it is the companies that are implementing these Best Industry Practices and the Forum attributes to the Operational Side of the business the attention it deserves. Given the global outreach of this year’s forum we expect record attendance.


WHO SHOULD ATTEND

 

This Forum is addressed among others to Ship Managers, Shipowners, Ship Operators, Shipbrokers, Commercial and Investment Bankers, Charterers, Classification Societies, Commodity and Energy Traders, Environmental Maritime Organizations, Industry Associations, Government and Non-Governmental Organizations, Financial and Trade Media, Institutional Investors, P&I Executives, Lawyers and Insurers, Market Analysts and Consultants, Private Equity Firms and offshore industry entities.
