NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwired - Sep 7, 2016) - Government and business leaders and senior executives from the transportation, energy, logistics and maritime related sectors will participate on panels and presentations at Capital Link's New York Maritime Forum to be held in New York City on Tuesday, September 13, 2016.

FORUM OVERVIEW AND STRUCTURE
The Forum is organized in partnership with DNB and in cooperation with the New York Stock Exchange, NASDAQ, the Empire State Development, the New York City Economic Development Corporation and The Port Authority of NY & NJ.

The Forum is an initiative that aims to highlight the significance of New York as a maritime center and attract more maritime related business to the area, while also discussing trends, developments and investment opportunities in the global maritime industry and related sectors. As such, the Forum has a double objective.

First, to provide an interactive platform for investors, financiers, cargo owners and shipowners to discuss the latest developments in the global shipping and commodity markets, as well as in the financial and capital markets. In this context, it is the continuation of the Annual Capital Link Global Shipping, Commodities & Energy Forum, a major one-day finance and investment conference on the maritime sector which takes place in New York City for the last 8 years and attracts well over 800 senior executives from the global maritime industry. New York is the industry's capital raising center, with the largest number of listed shipping companies and the largest investor, analyst and investment bank base.

Second, to showcase and promote the role of New York as a hub for the global maritime community and attract more business to New York targeting a global industry audience. Besides being the industry's capital raising center, New York is also the third largest port in the United States serving as the gateway to a large consumer and industrial market. The New York Maritime Community plays a vital role in the industry with a diverse offering of products and services from port logistics, cargo handling, security and maritime support services to shipbroking, arbitration and mediation, insurance and reinsurance, restructuring and bankruptcy, maritime finance and law, securities law, maritime education and maritime technology.
