TradeWinds  -  Mare Forum   -   Enskilda Securities

are aiming to produce an event for shipowners and the investment community to focus on shipping stocks during the most important maritime week of 2005.

The Oslo Shipping Forum 2005 theme is
 
What' next? - challenges and opportunities
and consists of:

Five Hot Topics – Five Hot Debates
which affect the shipping industry today:




The Forward Freight Agreements Markets in Perspective.
The role of the FFA today and tomorrow.

Let’s get physical!


Is there a future for family run shipping companies?
What is the motivation of the new generation – the sea or the money?

A GPS for Investments in Liquid and Dry Bulk


"The Day After"
Buy, Sell or Hold - what will you do?


 

The conference chairman will be
MR.
Leif Terje Løddesøl
Deputy Chairman, Wilh. Wilhelmsen ASA

All of these contemporary issues will be covered in this exciting conference which will focus on the FFAs market places and on the issues surrounding shipping's relationship to the world stock markets. Shipping executives from Shanghai to Mumbai and New York to Oslo are actively engaged in new listings and IPO's taking advantage of an "endless appetite" among investors for new shipping companies.  But where is this heading, what does it mean for existing owners and where will it end? There is no better time to take stock of these contemporary issues and current hype surrounding shipping's relationship to the world stock markets. These themes are important both for the investment community, who need to see around the corner of the current boom, and for family run shipping companies who need to balance the opportunities arising from the easy investment capital currently available with the increased public scrutiny and demands that accompany a stock market listing.


This forum is designed and produced for shipping CEO's from listed and private shipping companies, brokers and key investors in shipping.

The Oslo Shipping Forum 2005 will be exceptional in its format, content and through the level and degree of interactivity between the participants. The ultimate goal of the conference is to provide a true forum where all participants are invited to take part in the debate periods after every session in which high profile speakers from the industry have directly addressed the issues.


We look forward to welcoming you to Oslo,
