11th MARE FORUM SHIPFINANCE 2011


SHIPOWNERS VERSUS CAPITAL PROVIDERS
A lively debate between Shipowners and Capital Providers
 

Tuesday 1 November 2011

NH Grand Hotel Krasnapolsky

AMSTERDAM - THE NETHERLANDS



 

Money for shipping projects is scarce and hard to find. And there is increasing evidence that banks are losing patience with shipowners. So where is the money, and how long before the next wave of foreclosures? The only way to find out is to get close to shipping bankers. On November 1, Mare Forum will return to the lively city of Amsterdam where the 11th Mare Forum Shipfinance 2011 will create the opportunity for many of the leaders of the Dutch and international shipping community to square up to Dutch and global players in the finance world. In a robust forum which builds on the ten previous successful Mare Forum Shipfinance conferences you and they will have a chance to join a frank debate on investments, shipfinance, and profitable opportunities today and in the near future. Now in its eleventh 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.

Leading Dutch 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 where an exchange of views, visions and valuable information will make this forum another unforgettable and meaningful experience.

Are we in for a fight? Will banks pull the plug on owners in trouble? Can you find finance for your new project? Let’s look forward and see where shipping investments, ship-finance and the world are going next. So hone your questions and comments, come ready to learn, ready to debate, ready to build new contacts and cement old ones. All the Dutch banks and more which back the forum will welcome you, and the Mare Forum team looks forward to including you in the free flowing discussion which is what sets this ship finance forum head and shoulders above all others. Don’t be afraid. Join them, meet the top bankers and owners, and discuss money, ships and the factors that affect them both with market makers and industry shapers.

 

We look forward to welcoming you in Amsterdam,
