MARE FORUM ITALY 2010

 - Optimism in the air -

 Monday 10 May 2010

Cavalieri Rome
Rome - Italy


 

The global economy may still be on a knife edge but Italian shipping is scenting the first hints of optimism in the air. The core strengths of Italian owners have helped them survive volatile markets, and the depths of competence and innovation right across Italy’s shipping cluster position them to take advantage of any opportunity the changing markets present.


No one is cheering, but there is a feeling that good old fashioned values of prudence, long term thinking, family decision making and staying friends with the banks give Italy’s diverse marine industries a firm platform for the future.


In Rome leading Italian and international shipowners will come together with charterers, traders, brokers, shippers, investors, shipbuilders, classification societies, financial institutions, politicians, regulators and the media, to debate how innovation will affect ship values, and how the markets will affect all of them.


The entire production and maritime chain will gather at this prestigious and unique conference where the interaction and exchange of information and ideas will make this an unforgettable experience.


Rome in May is a lovely city, full of history, and full of promise for a vibrant future. Join Italy’s shipping leaders there to discuss, debate and network in true robust Roman style at Mare Forum Italy 2010.

 

We look forward to welcoming you in Rome,
