It will be great again!

The Mare Forum Ship-finance conference  dinner takes place on Tuesday October 14th and is hosted by the Rotterdam Maritime Services Community (RMSC).

The 150 first registered participants of the conference  are invited for this diner.

The 14th Mare Forum Shipfinance 2014 “Shipowners versus Capital Providers” will once again gather an impressive number of leading Dutch and international shipowners, CEOs from shipping, bankers, lawyers, key investors in shipping, financial institutions, trading and brokerage companies, consultants and entrepreneurs, classification societies, regulators, the media and other members of the international maritime community will all again take an active part at this prestigious conference, in order to network, learn, discuss and debate all contemporary and urgent themes in ship-finance and ship-investments
The 13 previous Mare Forum Ship Finance forms have been bristling with ideas and dynamic debate. A very high level audience appreciates and makes the most of the dynamic format and honest debate. If you are an owner having trouble finding a good capital provider, come to Mare Forum, here they are. If you are a capital provider having trouble finding a good owner, come to Mare Forum and meet them. If you are in shipping and ship finance and want to know what will happen next, come to Mare Forum, the good answers will be there.
Looking forward to welcome you in Rotterdam
