10th Annual Greek Shipping Forum

Friday, 22 February 2019

Athens
Capital Link’s 10th Annual Greek Shipping Forum will take place on Friday, February 22, 2019 at the Hilton Athens Hotel in Athens, Greece. The Forum is organized in cooperation with the New York Stock Exchange and Nasdaq. Bank of Communications Financial Leasing is the Lead Sponsor. 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, IMO 2020 options & strategies, marine engines & fuels and the transformational impact of technology. • As usual, Maritime Finance will be the core subject with focus on bank finance, capital markets, alternative funding mechanisms and private equity. There will be particular attention to Asian Leasing alternatives including Chinese, Korean and Japanese leasing options and panel of prominent Chinese Leasing firms. 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.
