With more than 50 events scheduled, Hong Kong Maritime Week, which launches this Sunday, promises to be one of the highlights of the international shipping calendar.
At the heart of the week will be the fully booked Maritime CEO Forum taking place during the afternoon of Wednesday November 22 in the superb setting of the Foreign Correspondents’ Club. With shipowners making up half of all delegates this by-invitation-only exclusive gathering includes three main parts looking at dry bulk, tankers and human resources as well as a new session featuring a Q&A with the world’s most famous shipping analyst, Dr Martin Stopford.
For those disappointed not to get in to the forum this time, the event will be returning to Singapore next March.
Splash will be reporting from the forum as well as other key events during Hong Kong Maritime Week including the government-backed Asian Logistics and Maritime Conference, the Mare Forum Hong Kong and a safe manning seminar organised by the Nautical Institute.
