MARE FORUM ITALY 2011

Italy and the World - Quo Vadis?
 

 Monday 9 May 2011

Hilton Sorrento Palace
Sorrento - Italy


Italian shipping has been holding its breath for two years, waiting for a disaster that hasn’t come.

 

It’s been tough, but most Italian shipping businesses are breathing cautiously now, emerging into a new world, still strong, still innovative, still wary but with more optimism. They survived because they did not depend on local business. Italian shipping was late to globalization, but that globalization has saved it in the crisis. 

 

On May 9 Mare Forum will return to the beautiful setting of Sorrento where Maritime Italy 2011 will bring together many of the leaders of the Italian shipping community and square them up to global players in the shipping and finance world. In a robust forum which builds on the successful Mare Forum conferences in Italy held from 2005 to 2010, you and they will have a chance to join a frank debate on Italian shipping, today and in the near future.

 

Leading Italian and international shipowners; CEOs from shipping, trading and brokerage companies; key investors in shipping, bankers, consultants and entrepreneurs; classification societies, financial institutions, politicians, regulators and the media will gather at this prestigious conference in Sorrento on May 9, 2011 where an exchange of views, visions and valuable information will make this forum another unforgettable and meaningful experience.

 

There is no disaster – so now let’s look forward and see where Italian shipping and the world are going next.
