MARITIME WEEK AMERICAS PROGRAMME
RECOVERY POSITION: THE WAY BACK FOR SHIPPING AND BUNKER MARKETS

Wednesday 25 - Thursday 26 May 2022

Chaos in world shipping and bunker markets follows hot on the heels of the economic devastation caused by the Covid-19 pandemic. Disrupted global supply chains, runaway oil prices and container freight rates, major port congestion and international sanctions currently pose a unique set of problems. But despite these huge challenges, the strategically important shipping and bunkering sectors have had no option but to work throughout this difficult period. This conference will look at how markets might recover and at some of the new challenges that now lie ahead.

Standard Rate:  £1,595
