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.
