Navigating the future
3 November 2015, 9:00AM - 7:30PM, CET
Over the past few years, the global shipping industry has seen some exciting and fundamental changes. The impact of globalization and international alliances, international ports, overcapacity, and the role of international financial investors such as private equity are at the forefront of boardroom conversations.
On 3 November 2015, top executives from various disciplines from around the world met in Hamburg, Germany, for the first-ever KPMG Global Shipping Conference. The meeting was a prime opportunity to discuss issues such as overcapacities in the market, the question of financing, and crewing challenges that shipping businesses are facing, and how that impacts the shipping and ports industry. With more than 200 attendees from 22 countries and 4 continents, and 25 speakers from 8 different countries, clients in attendance included the German Shipowners’ Association, The New York Stock Exchange, Euronav, Berenberg Bank and Borealis.
