EUROPORT TRADE EXHIBITION

ROTTERDAM - THE NETHERLANDS


mare forum's 12th MARE FORUM SHIPFINANCE 2012 photoset  

 


From 5 – 8 November 2013, one of the world’s leading maritime events "Europort 2013" will again take place in the the world port city of Rotterdam. More than 30,000 maritime professionals from over 90 countries will meet to present, discuss and share information on innovative technology and smart solutions to build the most sophisticated ships.

Mare Forum, a must-go-to conference in the Europort agenda, will convene on November 5.


MARE FORUM 2013 is once again gathering the leading policy makers, politicians, shipowners, shipbuilders, marine equipment manufacturers, financiers, investors, charterers, ship brokers, entrepreneurs, environmentalists, journalists, trade organisations and other members of the international maritime community in order to network, learn, discuss and debate all contemporary and urgent themes, which are of vital importance to the future of the maritime industry.

Topics to be analyzed and debated will include current and future trends in the shipping markets, trends in shipbuilding, new vessel types, new fuels, sustainability and eco ships, innovation and investment opportunities.


The conference will take place in an open, stimulating, free-flowing environment with ambiance and informal discussions once again demonstrating the successful hallmark of the Mare Forum formula.

Europort 2013 thus once more takes its place as a recognized member of what is an exclusive set of Mare Forum industry events.

 

 

Looking forward to welcoming you in Rotterdam,
