The last edition of TradeWinds Ship Recycling Forum took place in Hamburg in March 2018 which brought together a record number of more than 250 senior executives and experts and more are expected this year.

On 5 - 6 March 2019, the 11th edition of TradeWinds Ship Recycing Forum will take place in Hong Kong at the Hyatt Regency, Tsim Sha Tsui.
