Mare Forum ShipFinance 2004 

Shipowners vs. Capital Providers
- A TANGO FOR TWO -

Friday 29 October 2004
Grand Hotel Krasnapolsky - Amsterdam


INTRODUCTION

There is no feeling to beat the jolt you get when a deal comes together. When timing, personalities, assets and finance all fall into step, everyone goes home walking taller. The same happens after that rare event, a good conference. When people, topics and timing combine with the right catalyst in the right place, everyone gains more than the sum of the parts. You learn something useful. You meet the person you need to. You find the missing piece to complete your next deal. You get something off your chest. And you have fun doing it. Thatís the magic of a good industry get together.

There arenít many. Most finance conferences today are simply long sequences of sponsor firms advertising themselves to an audience that isnít listening. But the Mare Forum Ship Finance Forum is different. Run by Mare Forum, backed by the major Dutch ship finance banks, and open to anyone as long as they are willing to take part, the first three Tango for Two events have attracted and pleased shipowners, charterers and financiers in equal measure, while managing to keep the normal conference fodder off the platform.

Mare Forum Shipfinance 2004, set for Amsterdam, Friday 29 October 2004, will take the spirit and backing built up over the last three successful events and deliver a day guaranteed to excite, disturb, please and pay dividends for everyone. No long speeches, no advertising, no posing by the panel. Instead real people, real topics, real participation.

With sessions geared to address the current issues in true Mare Forum style, at Mare Forum Shipfinance 2004 you will have the opportunity to participate in sessions on topics like:

  Emerging and Shipping Markets Forecast:
The World Beyond China!! What about India?
 

  Long Term Financing of Cargo Movements Ė Optimisation:
Synergy between Owners-Charterers-Capital Providers
 

  Shipping Investment Forum;
A Global Positioning System for Shipping Investment:
Guiding Investors to a Profitable Destination
 

  A Pantheon of Shipping Banks:
An examination of the differences of culture, and differences of structure /law/practice between banks within a given area and between banks from different areas
 

  Extra! Extra! Do Tanker Owners Get the Ship Finance They Deserve?

Intertanko INTERTANKO will be holding its Executive Committee and Council Meetings (27-28 October) back to back with Mare Forum, and the conference content will reflect the high level and quality of input from the tanker owners present.

Not so much a conference, more a controlled argument flowing along on a river of fun. If you are interested in money, ships and how they match up, be there.
