There is a lot of money in shipping today, and a
lot of talking. Lots of deals to be done and lots of people wanting to talk
about new ways to make more money. But ship finance is much more than just the
latest deal and good conferences are much more than just clever investment
bankers pushing their new tricks.
Ship finance is a long term business founded on good relationships, and good
conferences are places where those relationships begin and flourish. To
succeed in ship finance you need to know the right people, you need to know
what they are doing, and why they are doing it. Good conferences bring the
right people together so they meet and share information, build relationships
and make the deals which stand through times when there is a lot less money in
shipping then there is now.
Mare Forumís Ship Finance Conference succeeds because its vibrant mix of top
shipowners and top financiers can interact without long speeches or boring
product plugs. Now in its fifth year, the Tango for Two conference run each
autumn in Amsterdam is managed by Mare Forum, backed by all the major Dutch
banks and brings together owners, financiers and charterers from all over the
world and every sector of shipping.
The mix of lively debate, fast-moving sessions
on key topics and the ease of meeting key people ensure that its delegate list
grows in number and quality each year. Mare Forum Ship Finance 2005, set for
Amsterdam on Thursday October 27, will tackle the topics other conferences shy
away from, with quality speakers, panelists and delegates who would shy away
from other conferences. Be different, come to a conference where you will
actually benefit, and join in debates.
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 today and
tomorrow, be there.
