MARE FORUM SHIPFINANCE
2007

SHIPOWNERS VERSUS CAPITAL PROVIDERS
 
"shipping in context"
A lively debate between Shipowners and Capital Providers
 

Thursday 1 November 2007
The Grand Hotel

AMSTERDAM - THE NETHERLANDS


 

THE world financial markets may have suffered a wobble over the last few months, but so far most sectors of shipping are still making more money than anyone ever expected. So ship financiers should be happy, with record newbuildings to finance and the general consensus that the good times can roll on a little longer.

But can they, and what are the costs and crises which shipping can look forward to?

Come to Amsterdam and join leading shipowners and financiers in a very personal rolling discussion of where shipping is going, what challenges and opportunities it must face up to and where the smart money is going next.

Now in its seventh year, this Mare Forum Ship Finance conference attracts a very high level audience who appreciate the dynamic format and honest debate which has become its hallmark.

Join them, meet the top bankers and owners, and discuss money and ships with market makers and industry shapers.
 

 

We look forward to welcoming you in Amsterdam,
