Capital Link is hosting its 8th Annual Greek Shipping Forum on Wednesday, February 15th, 2017 at the Divani Caravel Hotel in Athens, Greece, in cooperation with the New York Stock Exchange and the Nasdaq. 

Greek shipping remains important to the maritime economy, constituting approximately 20 percent of the world’s shipping fleet. In spite of the volatile markets and economic downturn, Greek shipping professionals have consistently adapted to changing conditions, seeking out growth and opportunity rather than yielding to their circumstances.

This event will provide a comprehensive review of current trends and outlook of the global economy and the main commodity, energy and shipping markets. It will also discuss critical issues and challenges the industry faces, including geopolitical and regulatory developments, technical and commercial fleet management and access to capital. It will examine bank financing, capital markets and alternative funding mechanisms and strategies.

A key topic of the forum will be to discuss the internationalization of the Chinese economy and Chinese shipping and the impact of the "One Belt - One Road" concept for the industry.

Our Athens Forum, in its 8th year, draws consistently over 1,000 delegates and is known for its large attendance by public and private shipping companies' executives and market participants.


Capital Link invites institutional investors, analysts, bankers, financial advisors, financial media, and other qualified investors who are interested in enhancing their knowledge of shipping across all sectors. With an average of roughly 1000 participants each year, attendees can expect an informative networking forum connecting them to the shipping industry’s key players, including influential members in the financial community, such as commercial and investment banks.
