Ridgebury’s Bob Burke, Michael Skov from Hafnia Tankers and the veteran chairman of Team Tankers, Morten Arntzen are just three names of a stellar cast of panellists and moderators lined up for the next edition of the Maritime CEO Forum.
Scheduled for the afternoon of October 2 on the top floor of the Foreign Correspondents’ Club (FCC) in the heart of the Central district of Hong Kong, the event this year has drawn an unparalleled set of panellists with more big names set to confirm soon.
As with previous editions there will be an opening 30-minute quick fire Q&A with a leading analyst on the markets to get delegates in the mood for this interactive event. This year’s analyst is Dr Adam Kent from Maritime Strategies International.
Panels on tankers, dry bulk and a special 2020 Vision debate on what owners need to do in the coming months to meet new regulations follow.
The dry bulk panel will be moderated as ever in entertaining fashion by Mandarin Shipping’s Tim Huxley and features GoodBulk’s John Michael Radziwill and Olivia Lennox-King from Asia Maritime Pacific among confirmed panellists.
The new 2020 Vision session, meanwhile, has the head of the Internatonal Chamber of Shipping (ICS), Esben Poulsson alongside famous names such as Anglo-Eastern’s Bjørn Højgaard and Jack Hsu, the head of Oak Maritime HK as well as chair of the influential Hong Kong Shipowners Association.
The exclusive, by-invitation-only Maritime CEO Forum is designed to be as interactive as possible with no set speeches and delegates from the floor participating as much as those on stage.
In what will be a banner week for shipping in Hong Kong, the Global Maritime Forum takes place the following day on October 3.
Commented editorial director Sam Chambers, “Now into its third year, the Maritime CEO Forum has established itself as an event shipowners really like to attend, where they can chew the fat in nice surroundings and not face any dull sales pitches.”
After Hong Kong, the next Maritime CEO Forum will take place at Singapore’s iconic Fullerton Hotel on April 8 next year.
This year’s Maritime CEO Forum in Hong Kong is sponsored by Anglo-Eastern, Cobham, Compas, DVB, Dualog, Liberian Registry, Marlink and Transas.
