3rd Annual Invest in International Shipping & Marine Services Forum

Capital Link Forum
Tuesday, October, 12, 2010 - London

With the global economy on the rebound, the shipping industry has encountered both opportunities and challenges. Despite the persistent volatility in the marketplace, the industry has managed to access capital and continue to finance its vessels and projects. Growth opportunities for the shipping industry have been fuelled by the surge in both industrialization and urbanization in developing countries, such as China and India, with the developed world also on the rebound. At the same time, continued tightness within the financial markets, along with the uncertainty in the capital markets, has created a new set of challenges.

Capital Link's 3rd Annual Invest in International Shipping & Marine Services Forum, in cooperation with the London Stock Exchange, aims to provide investors with a comprehensive review and current outlook of the various shipping and marine services markets, in addition to raising the profile of listed shipping and marine services companies among the UK and wider-European investment communities.

The 2010 London Forum will bring together a distinguished group of expert panelists & presenters to discuss the latest developments in the dry bulk, tanker, container and marine services industries. Presentations will cover ways to access capital for listed sector companies, availability of financing, legal developments, and improvements in the marine services sector.

The Forum also provides a unique opportunity to meet and network with a large, high-caliber target audience of shipowners, shipping executives, institutional investors, research analysts, industry experts, commercial and investment bankers, risk advisors, private equity and venture capital firms, high-net worth investors, and financial media. The event will be open to the buy and sell side communities as well.
