GLOBAL EVENT CONNECTS OVER 300 SHIPPING PROFESSIONALS IN LIMASSOL, CYPRUS

The conference was refreshing in its directness, featuring an inviting stage of panellists discussing and debating questions posed by thoughtful and provocative moderators. From the opening session, which challenged representatives from several shipping companies and trade associations on their views of performance through and following the financial crises, to the final session, which offered the forward thinking idea of salvage companies participating in ship design, the audience enjoyed and was engaged throughout the event.
