The Slide2Open Shipping Finance 2018 Conference in Athens’ Athenaeum InterContinental Hotel is under way.
The Conference aims to cover many Shipping Finance issues and challenges involving international stakeholders from all sectors of the shipping spectrum at a time shipfinance becomes the most important issue.
Given the ten year old shipping crisis, the collapse of many banks and financial institutions, the “entry” of funds to fill the gap, the geopolitical situation, the safety, insurance and regulatory jargon, the environmental musts, the technological advancements, the human resources involvement – on board and on shore, the cyber upcoming saga and the pattern of trade and shipping entities, this conference comes at no better time.
It is one of the very few conferences that non-traditional shipping media is involved marking the importance of shipping to all intents and purposes.
We will revert with a full write up, comments and more pictures from Iris Liaskonis being there now.
Many congratulations to Despina Travlou, the principal and founder of Slide2Open, for masterminding this timely event. We are also pleased to see among the speakers, moderators and panellists many supporters of allaboutshipping.co.uk, friends and relatives! Watch this space!
