They are (in alphabetical order):
- Mr. Joseph Angelo, Deputy Managing Director INTERTANKO

The Conference will feature presentations to be delivered by guest speakers invited from member-companies Danaos Shipping Co Ltd and DNV GL, the National Technical University of Athens, the United States Coast Guard and Wärtsilä.
As always, and courtesy of event organizers Posidonia Exhibitions S.A., delegates will be able to visit HELMEPA at its Exhibit Stand Nr. 2.212. Members of HELMEPA’s staff will be available to inform and update visitors on the aims and activities of the Association.
