Highlights of the agenda

Over the last few years deteriorating economic conditions have affected the economic cycle of most economies and thus the volume of world trade. Inevitably, this has affected shipping demand. On the other hand new building projects resulted to a surplus of tonnage leading to a further drop of marine transportation tariffs. However, the Shipping industry remains one of the most solid sectors globally as well as one with high development potential.

Featuring a combination of keynote addresses, presentations, interactive panel discussions, parallel "focus sessions", closed sessions, private meeting and networking opportunities, the World Shipping Congress will address and analyse the major strategic issues of the Shipping industry.

During the two days of the Congress, Presidents of Shipowners' Associations from all around the World, Independent Shipowners, senior representatives of institutions, capital markets, banks, marine insurance organizations and P & I Clubs, as well as consultants and specialists will analyse world economy, world trade, Shipping trends and ship financing, focusing on core industry issues concerning Bulk, Tankers, LNGs, Containers and Offshore Drilling, as well as ports, shipyards, scrapyards, supply chains, transportation networks and more such as piracy and marine insurance.

During the 1st day, Sunday, February 19, 2012 the Global Shipping Summit: Shipping the Future will take place. Attendance of the Summit is by invitation.
