 The Oslo Shipping Forum 2006

- Hot and Cold -

Thursday, 4 May

The Grand Hotel 0slo

This Forum consists of

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

Frozen Out?
Measuring the climate for arctic and ice class shipping investments

The Market for FFA’s

What's next? - challenges and opportunities

Innovative ideas:

What are the next big ideas in Shipping?
- Who is afraid of the future?-

Shipping Investments Forum
A Global Positioning System (GPS) for investments

in Dry and Liquid bulk:

-Exploring the investments dilemmas-


All of these contemporary issues will be covered in this exciting conference which will focus on doing shipping business and investing in Artic and Baltic Regions to enter or to burn your fingers in ice waters, the FFA’s market developments, the issues surrounding shipping's relationship to the world stock markets - investments dilemmas – and innovative fresh ideas about the shipping business.


This forum is designed and produced for shipping CEO's from listed and private shipping companies, brokers, key investors in shipping, bankers and entrepreneurs looking for expansion in their business.

As with all our events, the mix of commercial, technical and business hot topics and hot operators will be organised into a free-flowing debate, with room for everyone to participate, and to network.

The Oslo Shipping Forum 2006 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,
