Venue: ExCel, London, UK
A major theme of Seatrade London International Maritime Convention 2005 will be the growing interdependence of maritime centers and the scope for imaginative cooperation. How can a company in the maritime sector operate most effectively in a truly globalised market place?
Another theme will be the direction and nature of regulation for the maritime industries. The British Presidency of the European Union in 2005 may bring into sharper focus the debate between regional and multi-lateral approaches to regulation. The crucial importance of the Asian voice in shipping regulation will be reflected by a strong representation from the Far East.
The Seatrade London conference programme will include sessions also on specific market issues such as the opportunities arising from the development of a significant LNG fleet and the growing importance of the freight futures market.
