MARSEILLE MARITIME 2008
The Mediterranean Basin Shipping Future


on Tuesday, 16 September 2008
at the Sofitel Palm Beach Hotel

The Marseille Maritime 2008 forum this year will centre around the Mediterranean Basin Shipping Future, which is of vital interest to ship owners/operators, oil and gas companies, ship brokers, key investors in shipping, regulators, port and terminal authorities, charterers, shippers, traders, bankers and shipping entrepreneurs.
It will examine openly, the following topics for our industry.

 

The Euro-Mediterranean Cooperation and shipping
The Shipping Markets Outlook - Invest, Sell or Hold
Energy for Europe from Central Asia, Russia, and North Africa – Shipping & Pipelines potential
Containers and Shortsea Shipping in Europe and Mediterranean Region - Opportunities

 

A mix of commercial, political, technical and business hot topics and a mix of all maritime professions will come together to create a free-flowing debate and give access for all delegates to actively participate, contribute and learn.


Come to Marseille and join the leading French shipowners and representatives of the French maritime cluster together with the leading international representatives of the maritime industry, in a very personal rolling discussion of where the Mediterranean maritime industries are going, what challenges and opportunities are must face up to and where the smart investments are going next.

 

If you are interested in ships, ports, money, environment, global trade, and how they match up today and tomorrow, be there.

 

We look forward to welcoming you to Marseille,
