Breaking with tradition, the 10th TradeWinds Ship Recycling Forum is moving to a European venue for 2018 TradeWinds announced today.
Explaining the move, conference director, Jon Chaplin said: "Developments over the next 12 months are critical in determining how EU shipowners recycle their ship and offshore vessels. For this special 10th anniversary edition, we have decided to hold these important discussions at a major European maritime hub."
Popular with ship recyclers from the five largest demo destinations of India, Bangladesh, Pakistan, China and Turkey, TradeWinds' Ship Recycling Forum is widely considered to be the most important annual gathering of global ship recycling in the world. Regular attendees represent cash buyers, ship recyclers, ship owners S&P brokers, insurance underwriters, environmental pressure groups, regulators, technical consultants and class societies.
With clean recycling topping shipowners regulation wish list, the timing of the forum could not be better. Chaplin added: "Hamburg was chosen so that European-based owners can have their recycling questions answered on the doorstep. Anyone with an interest in ship or rig recycling, if only to dispose of a single vessel, will benefit from attending."
The Forum is taking place with the support of key event sponsors, Priya Blue / Best Oasis and Class NK, with more to be announced.
The 10th TradeWinds Ship Recycling Forum takes place 7-8 March 2018 at the Atlantic Kempinski Hotel, Hamburg. For more information: email@example.com
