Maritime CEO Forum returns to Hong Kong this year, and will take place the day before the Global Maritime Forum.
The event is designed as the anti-shipping conference, with three panels packed full of shipowner CEOs. No presentations, no slides, no selling, just the top people in the industry discussing pressing issues.
Maritime CEO Forum is invitation only and will be limited in size to ensure all attendees can make the most of the afternoon.
12:30pm: Registration & light refreshments
1:30pm: Ask the doctor
Maritime Strategies International’s Dr Adam Kent takes questions from the floor on the markets to get participants in the mood for this interactive forum.
2:00pm: Tanker Market Outlook
Has the market bottomed out, what new tradelanes offer the best hope and how does a trade war impact business will all be topics up for discussion.
3:00pm: Coffee break
3:30pm: 2020 Vision
A special one-off 2020 Vision panel provides the central debate of this year’s Hong Kong forum where panellists and delegates alike will be quizzed on how to handle impending legislation changes.
4:30pm: Dry Bulk Market Outlook
As ever the forum’s final session is devoted to dry bulk and keeping with tradition will be moderated by Mandarin Shipping’s Tim Huxley providing an entertaining, insightful look into the drivers of the sector.
