An investor-focused event held every year in New York, the most influential C-level executives from U.S. and foreign listed shipping companies as well as analysts, financiers, and market experts will come together to discuss and examine the macroeconomic issues, sector trends and other important issues that are shaping and transforming international shipping today.

The forum will provide a comprehensive review and outlook on the various markets -- the container, dry bulk, and tanker sectors in addition to offshore drilling -- made more relevant by the timely release of companies' annual performance results. The event will also examine critical issues affecting the shipping industry, such as bank financing, access to the capital markets, alternative financing, restructuring, bankruptcy, ship recycling, and investment opportunities in shipping.
