Thursday September 24, 2020
Fullerton Hotel, Singapore

High-level panels:

Tanker market outlook
Digital optimisation
Dry bulk market outlook


Reception at Fullerton’s Post Bar

Maritime CEO Forum is returning to Singapore in 2020, marking the 5th edition of the event.

The forum is designed as the anti-shipping conference, in that it will be a half-day with panels packed full of shipowner and shipmanager CEOs. No presentations, no slides, no selling, just the top people in the industry discussing pressing issues.

Maritime CEO Forum will be limited in size to ensure all attendees can make the most of the day, network and then attendees can relax at the afterparty at the Fullerton’s Post Bar which will include additional invited guests.
