Buffeted by almost a decade of generally lacklustre markets in the wake of the global financial crisis and watching as resurgent protectionist impulses threaten world trade growth, the shipping industry finds itself confronted by an unprecedented combination of challenges. 


Chief among these are the need to control emissions and decarbonise, navigate the risks and opportunities presented by technological innovation, and continue funding itself despite the apparent near-demise of traditional bank finance. In the face of all this, what’s an independent shipowner to do?


The Lloyd’s List Greek Shipping Forum brings these questions to Greece, home of the world’s largest independent shipowner community. The forum will try to better define some of the potential answers.


For decades, Greek owners collectively have been at the top in the dry bulk and tanker markets. Increasingly, they have also become front-row players in the containership and LNG sectors. The ongoing expansion of Greek-controlled shipping capacity may be the best evidence of all that reports of the death of the independent owner are premature, but continued success will depend upon the famed adaptability of Greek shipping as never before.

Key Topics for Discussion



This forum will provide exclusive analysis by Lloyd’s List Intelligence of the outlook for the main market sectors, the shipbuilding market and today’s changing trade dynamics.


Bringing together shipowners and outside experts, the panel of speakers will share their views on all the key challenges and risks likely to determine the future for shipowners:


  • Can smaller and medium-sized owners any longer truly compete in an era of increasing regulatory compliance and disruptive technology?
  • Are there new tools and possible new commercial or management structures that may make the difference?
  • Are the new technologies that will really matter in our lifetimes?
  • Will owners, and the Greek maritime cluster generally, have the opportunity for a greater share of the business benefits from the new shipping requirements that are likely to emerge?
