Iron Ore & Coal
World Shipping Summit 2010

Discovering the future of the shipping markets - the need for innovation - and where should the smart investments go now?

Monday 4 October 2010
Divani Apollon Palace

Athens - Greece


Following the very successful first Iron Ore & Coal World Shipping Summit last year, Mare Forum together with OreCoal is pleased to announce the second conference to be held on Monday 4th of October 2010. The international iron ore, coal and shipping communities will gather in Athens to discuss, advise and network around the topical issues which affect the world’s largest seagoing commodities.

The conference will focus on the maritime transportation of iron ore and coal, making an attempt to forecast the trends of global economy; iron ore, coal and other commodities, production and distribution; the trading markets, shipping capacities, shipbuilding and shipping requirements; the financing and investment climate, shipping innovation effects on ship-values and the environmental imperatives.

This will be again a unique forum for the leading players of the shipping and mining industry to explore and examine common challenges. This summit will feature many high profile speakers from shipping companies, charterers, traders, mining companies, steel mills, shipbuilders, ports, classification societies, financial institutions, politicians, regulators, brokers and the media. The entire maritime chain will gather at this distinguished conference, where the exchange of information and ideas will make this an unforgettable experience.

Topics to be addressed are:

  • Learn from the iron ore, coal, oil, gas and other commodities producers and end-users what their market perceptions and expectations are.

  • Discuss who has the real hard information on current trends and how it should be valued.

  • Debate with charterers, traders, brokers, operators and ship-owners on what the freight rates and the market will be, what ships will be needed and how shipping will be affected.

  • Learn about shipping innovation needed for the future and debate with leading personalities how ship innovation will affect ship asset values

  • Learn how to mobilize money in the current and future climate.

  • Learn where the shipping money is now and how to find it

  • Learn where the smart investments should go now?

Come to Athens and join the world’s shipping players there to discuss, debate and network in a true Athenian style at Iron Ore & Coal World Shipping Summit 2010.
