Shipping 2017 “Presenting the future powerhouses”

Presentations from and interviews with global powerhouses with a focus on how the worst shipping crisis ever has reshuffled the picture entirely of key stakeholders in the maritime industry. How some have managed to turn the  crisis into advantages while others are gone or are suffering severely. How can your company benefit from the  lessons learnt?

Peoples’ power “Meet the headhunter and the talent”

The right individual for the right position is crucial, today more than ever. Key companies share insight information on how they deal with talent and the management of people. Get the latest requirements from maritime headhunters who are constantly on the move to pick up new candidates.

Guide by capital moves “Learn how the owners are maneuvering”

Some of the world’s most influential investors and bankers play a crucial role in the ownership of maritime  companies. Where do they see investment opportunities with potential also in 2020? Where do they see freight rates, GDP and energy prices in three years?

Risks at sea “Piracy from outer space”

Piracy is no longer just a matter of gangs entering your vessel in the middle of the night. The threat of cyber space  is building up rapidly with the potential of posing even bigger risks, also for the crews. The maritime industry seems to be rather unprepared. But there are concrete measures.
