This year, we’re planning a 2 1/2 day conference that will include more speakers, more roundtables, more exhibitors, more sponsorship opportunities, more shipowners and – most important – more scheduled networking events. The overall theme is practical technology solutions to operate ships and fleet more efficiently.
TradeWinds invites you to join the Shipowners Forum Hamburg on 12 October 2017 at the Fairmont Hotel Vier Jahreszeiten. Evolution is happening in Hamburg as globalisation and overcapacity in the liner trades force the pace of change. Having developed a highly accomplished and prosperous cluster, Hamburg’s shipping scions are coming to terms with long-term market malaise. Ongoing consolidation among liner operators continues as control of entire fleets shifts away from Germany’s maritime capital. Taxpayers are shoring up German banks, which are in turn writing off millions of dollars of shipping debt. TradeWinds Shipowners Forum will lift the lid on Hamburg’s challenges and explore how its tonnage providers, operators, banks and brokers are adapting to the new reality. Drawing on expertise from inside and outside Hamburg, the forum will tackle a wide range of topics at the heart of the Hanseatic city’s future prosperity and uncover the opportunities arising. Based on the successful Shipowners Forum in Athens and further developed in Hong Kong and Dubai, the event comprises a series of lively discussion panels and high-level networking social functions.
The 91st Annual International Propeller Club Convention, hosted by the Propeller Club Port of Port Canaveral, will be held October 18-20, 2017, at the DoubleTree by Hilton Cocoa Beach Oceanfront Hotel.
