The event will address topics such as: changes in regulations, the impact of LNG on shipping, the changing face of ship finance, education and training excellence, and shipowners’ response to change, all in order to make 2014 more safe, productive and profitable.
The conference will be opened by Paul “Chip” Jaenichen, Acting Maritime Administrator.
Following the conference, a premier gathering of key shipping professionals from across the region will be held – the Lloyd’s List North American Awards Dinner.
