Shipowners Forum Hamburg 2017

Hamburg - securing a future.

“How will German shipowners and the Hamburg shipping scene emerge from today’s harsh financial challenges? How will the skills and experience developed over generations be put to use as markets look to rebuild? These key questions and many more will be in the forefront as TradeWinds brings its Shipowners’ Forum to Hamburg in October, and again to SMM next September.”

TradeWinds invites you to join the Shipowners Forum Hamburg on 12 October 2017 at the Fairmont Hotel Vier Jahreszeiten.

Evolution is happening in Hamburg as globalisation and overcapacity in the liner trades force the pace of change. Having developed a highly accomplished and prosperous cluster, Hamburg’s shipping scions are coming to terms with long-term market malaise. Ongoing consolidation among liner operators continues as control of entire fleets shifts away from Germany’s maritime capital. Taxpayers are shoring up German banks, which are in turn writing off millions of dollars of shipping debt.

TradeWinds Shipowners Forum will lift the lid on Hamburg’s challenges and explore how its tonnage providers, operators, banks and brokers are adapting to the new reality. Drawing on expertise from inside and outside Hamburg, the forum will tackle a wide range of topics at the heart of the Hanseatic city’s future prosperity and uncover the opportunities arising.

Based on the successful Shipowners Forum in Athens and further developed in Hong Kong and Dubai, the event comprises a series of lively discussion panels and high-level networking social functions.

Confirmed panellists include*:

Christoph Geck-Schlich, Managing Director, CPO Investments

Nicolaus Bunnemann, Managing Director, Atlantic Lloyd

Jens Mahnke, Chief Executive Officer (CEO), Ernst Russ

John Freydag, Managing Director Container & Bulk Chartering, Bernhard Schulte
