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.
The event will focus on three main areas:
• The current trends and outlook of the global economy and the main commodity, energy and shipping markets.
• The critical challenges the industry faces today related to geopolitical and regulatory developments, such as compliance with low sulfur, decarbonization, and the transformational impact of technology
• As usual, Maritime Finance will be the core subject with focus on bank finance, capital markets, Chinese leasing, alternative funding mechanisms and private equity.
With 1000+ participants every 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. This one-day conference, known for its large attendance by shipowners, its rich informational content and the extensive marketing, networking and business development opportunities.
