Thank you for attending

TradeWinds hosted its signature Shipowners Forum in Japan on 12th November 2019.

Challenging times prompted the Japanese shipping industry to rethink and reshape their businesses. With the onset of major changes, there are opportunities for the Japanese maritime cluster to enhance its competitiveness in its strong areas and break into new territories in the global markets.

Following on from 2018's successful Forum which brought together over 150 high profile industry experts and thought leaders, 2019 will once again for a deep-dive and interactive discussion at the iconic Conrad Tokyo and be amongst leading Japanese and international shipowners, shipbuilding executives, commodity traders, charterers, trading companies and ship finance capital providers.

This is a carbon-neutral event.
