Today marks the official launch of the Maritime CEO Forum. To be held at the Fullerton Hotel on April 24 at the start of Singapore Maritime Week, the event will bring together some of the biggest names in shipowning and shipmanagement for what the organisers – the parent of this site – describe as ‘the ultimate anti-shipping conference’.
While many event organisers claim to bring together big names for their shows the Maritime CEO Forum can legitimately describe its get together as a who’s who of world shipping featuring some of the world’s largest shipmanagers and a host of the best known names in shipowning with more to confirm soon.
The half-day event is split into four sessions looking at dry bulk, tankers, HR and crewing, and, new this year, a special on the future of shipping.
Confirmed speakers include the heads of AET Tankers, PCL Shipping, Pioneer Marine, Precious Shipping, Team Tankers, Teekay Tankers and Torvald Klaveness. A full speaker line up can be accessed by clicking here.
Commented Maritime CEO editor, Sam Chambers: “We’re delighted with the incredible speaker lineup that builds on our 2016 debut of this well received forum. We aim to make any event we put on as informal, interactive and interesting as possible. The industry is rightly fed up with the staid nature of conferences these days. We promise no set speeches, no power points – just pure insight and wisdom from the top names in the industry.”
Booked sponsors for this unique shipowner gathering include Cobham, Dualog, DVB Bank, Q88, Transas, V.Group, Veritas Petroleum Services and Wartsila.
After the event, drinks will take place at the Post Bar, the Fullerton’s great watering hole.
