Thank You for Attending

TradeWinds will host its signature Shipowners Forum for the first time in Japan on 13th November.

First held in Athens in 2011, TradeWinds Shipowners Forums have since been organised in Singapore, Dubai, Hong Kong, Hamburg and New York. Raising the bar for shipping conferences worldwide, the Forum’s attendee-lists read like a ‘who’s who’ of shipping. Specially invited VIP guests, executives of shipowner principals and leading charterers make up 80% of the delegates, with the remainder sponsors and maritime service providers.

On 13 November 2018 in Tokyo, innovative players from Japan and overseas will meet to discuss their strategies to manage and succeed. Delegates will also hear the outlook on markets and the global economy from influential speakers in 2 lively discussion sessions. TradeWinds Forums are known for interactive debates and the delegates will be encouraged to download an app that will allow them to contribute to the discussions on the stage. A short networking reception will then bring the conference to a close.

Securing key industry speakers and panelists is key to the success of TradeWinds Shipowners Forums. Please visit the speakers sections to take a look at the eminent speakers' list who have kindly agreed to share their knowledge and insight into the burning matters.

This is a carbon-neutral event.
