TradeWinds Shipowners Forum

Successful Premiere at SMM

For the first time, the renowned TradeWinds Shipowners Forum took place at SMM, the leading international maritime trade fair. At the Hamburg conference, well-known shipowners and international experts met to discuss future perspectives for the industry. Focal topics included financing issues as well as efficiency improvements enabled by digital solutions.

Hamburg, 05/09/2018 – Athens, Singapore, Houston: Held at maritime hubs around the world, the Shipowners Forum organised by TradeWinds magazine is a constant for the international shipping community. For the first time the event took place at SMM in Hamburg – and it immediately set new standards. In two high-profile panel discussions, participants explored the themes “Germany’s New Dawn” and “Global Ambition”. "While markets are recovering slowly, they must face new challenges – not only in terms of digital technologies but also as a result of stricter fuel and emission regulations," said TradeWinds editor-in-chief Julian Bray, who hosted the event and opened the discussion with a conversation with IMO Secretary-General Kitack Lim.
