9th MARE FORUM ITALY 2013
- Quo Vadis? -

Geopolitics, world economy, trade and commodities outlook, the future of shipping,  shipping innovations, shipfinance and investments

 

 Wednesday 8 May 2013
Grand Hotel Parco dei Principi
ROME - ITALY


On May 8, Mare Forum will return to the lively city of Rome where leading Italian and international shipowners, CEOs from shipping, trading and brokerage companies, key investors in shipping, bankers, consultants and entrepreneurs, classification societies, financial institutions, regulators and the media will gather at this prestigious conference and where an exchange of views, visions and valuable information will make this forum another unforgettable and meaningful experience.

 

The strength in depth of a mature maritime cluster has helped Italy’s shipowners, shipyards, brokers, banks, ports and growing international service businesses to survive the global crisis. They have done that by reaching out around the globe. Italian expertise and flair is in demand globally, as are Italian ships.

To find out why, and to connect to the strong and growing Italian maritime cluster come to Rome and meet the people that matter. In the free flowing yet structured Mare Forum ideas and contacts join and feed on each other to create visions and new opportunities.

Rome is a great city and Mare Forum in Rome will bring together the best of Italy’s marine businesses and top shipping players with their global counterparts. Be part of that, enjoy it, and go home with a valuable Italian connection.

We look forward to seeing you there..
