This May we will see an unprecedented melding of Greek shipping might with American innovation and leverage in the inaugural Hellenic American Maritime Forum. In tight markets, with disruption, regulation and uncertainly, maritime executives need to be efficient with their resources. Every Euro/dollar counts, as does every hour and decision. It is important to maximize the opportunities that come before us – and seize them!

That is why SHIPPINGInsight is partnering with SAFETY4SEA to bring the Greek shipping industry an efficient, effective, and value rich event. We are creating a focal point for discussing the innovation and optimization (SHIPPINGInsight’s hallmarks) of our industry to Athens so industry leaders can judge for themselves which approach to take moving into the next decade.
For 8 years, SHIPPINGInsight has been the leader in raising the discussion of fleet optimization and innovation from the theoretical to the practical and has supported shipowners with a wide-ranging forum in which to air their views. The response to last year’s SHIPPINGInsight Conference was overwhelmingly positive, with 97% of the delegates asserting it was useful, and 96% claiming it had true value for their enterprise.
With such an important industry resource, SHIPPINGInsight needed to find a partner in Greece that was embedded in the Greek shipping market and had its finger on its every pulse. SAFETY4SEA meets these criteria with its multidimensional communications and events platform (SAFETY4SEA, GREEN4SEA, SMART4SEA, SAFETY4SEA). It was easy to see how the combination of these two entities would provide the shipping industry with true value and help propel the market into the future.
At the Hellenic American Maritime Forum, solution providers will be able to not only communicate their value proposition to over 300 shipowners and managers but will also have the opportunity to network with them on multiple levels: the Awards Event at the Megaron, Athens, the conference sessions themselves, and the numerous breaks and receptions.
We know that this event isn’t on industry’s radar – it is the first (but will be an annual event, so put it on your calendar for the last week in May EVERY year!). This is an excellent opportunity to meet with the Greek market (before going to Oslo?) during a period of profound change and disruption. Important decisions are being made now. Time waits for no man (or woman!).
