MARE FORUM SHIPFINANCE
SHIPOWNERS VERSUS CAPITAL PROVIDERS
A lively debate between
Shipowners and Capital Providers
Wednesday 31 October 2012
NH Grand Hotel Krasnapolsky
AMSTERDAM - THE NETHERLANDS
Last year shipowners were asking “Where is the
money?” This year they are asking, “Where is my bank?” Last year shipowners
were worried that banks might foreclose on them. Now they worry that the
banks will simply close, perhaps taking their remaining cash reserves with
them. Against a panorama of stagnant European economies and a European currency which seems unable to lift itself out of crisis is it right that
owners turn the tables and ask how strong the banks are?
One place they will be doing that is at the 12th Mare Forum Ship Finance
2012 forum, to be held in Amsterdam on Wednesday 31st October. This lively
forum brings together shipowners, shipyards, politicians and key banks and
gets all of them to air their worries and their views openly. Shipping is a
global business, offshore energy is doing just fine, so should we be
optimistic, should we see opportunities where others see problems? The
eleven previous Mare Forum Ship Finance forms have been bristling with ideas
and dynamic debate. A very high level audience appreciates and makes the
most of the dynamic format and honest debate. If you are an owner having
trouble finding a good bank, come to Mare Forum, here they are. If you are a
banker having trouble finding a good owner, come to Mare Forum and meet them.
If you are in shipping and ship finance and want to know what will happen
next, come to Mare Forum, the good answers will be there.
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 all take an active part at this prestigious conference.
You take an active part too.
Which banks will stick with shipping? Will we see new sources of finance?
Where will the money come from, and where will wise investors be putting it?
Have your questions and comments ready, come and join in, 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.
We look forward to
welcoming you in
