MARE FORUM

PRESENTS THE FORUM:

4th
MARITIME ITALY 2009

Italy and the World  -  Quo Vadis?
Recovery of the shipping markets
 when and how?
 

 Monday 11 May 2009

Hilton Sorrento Palace
Sorrento - Italy


 

Mare Forum’s Maritime Italy 2009 brings together many of the leaders of Italian shipping community and squares them up to global players in the shipping and finance world. In a robust forum which is the logical sequence to the successful Maritime Italy conferences held in 2006, 2007 and 2008, you and they will have a chance to join a frank debate on the recovery of the shipping markets, and how and where to raise capital today and in the near future.

The credit crunch is slowing down the global economy and shipping is suffering. But sooner or later the economy will recover and shipping will recover even faster. This conference addresses and explores opportunities as well as dangers while we strive toward global economic recovery. When will shipping come back to normal? Are shipbuilding cancelations and ship scrapping enough to rebalance the fleet? What will happen to global shipping banks and where will the shipping money come from to fund the recovery? How will we manage during the downturn and what are the lessons from the past? All these questions and more will be addressed and answered during this forum.

CEOs from shipping, trading and brokerage companies, key investors in shipping, bankers, consultants and entrepreneurs will gather at this prestigious conference in Sorrento on May 11, 2009 where an exchange of views, visions and valuable information will make this forum another unforgettable and meaningful experience.

 

We look forward to welcoming you in Sorrento,
