Following the success of the 2nd Mare Forum Shipfinance 2002 this year Mare Forum continues with the 3rd edition of the Ship Finance conferences.

MARE FORUM SHIPFINANCE 2003
is entitled
Shipowners vs. Capital Providers:
- A Tango for Two -

This conference will address and debate the question:

Is Financial Innovation a Necessity to thrive in a
Commodity-like Market such as Shipping?
 

Set for
Wednesday October 29th 2003,
the conference will once again take place in the heart of
Amsterdam at the NH Grand Hotel Krasnapolsky.

This Forum will stand apart from other financing seminars through its
format, content and through the level and degree of interactivity
between the participants. Like all Mare Forum conferences, the ultimate
goal of the conference is to provide a true forum where all participants
are invited to take part in the discussion periods after every panel of
high profile speakers has directly addressed the issues.

Our conference chairman will be Mr. John Guy of Merlin Corporate
Communications, and our main sponsors are the biggest and the best
of Dutch ship finance:
DVB Nedship Bank, NIB Capital,
FORTIS Bank, ING Bank and ABN AMRO Bank
.


If you were still in doubt, the unusual fact that these highly competitive
institutes of finance agreed to come together at
Mare Forum Shipfinance 2003
must be convincing enough for you to attend...

We look forward to welcoming you in Amsterdam and wish you success
during the conference.
