Following the success of our inaugural 2018 year-end forum to promote visionary discussion and forecasting, Lloyd’s List will host a panel of industry leaders and pundits again this year to consider the coming, critical decade.


The discussion, to be held on the same day as the Lloyd’s List Europe Awards, will form part of our 2019 series of Excellence in Shipping awards and forums.


The forum will address the opportunities and challenges facing the shipping industry post-2020 in a decade likely to see irreversible change triggered by the imperatives of regulatory reforms and the drive towards decarbonisation.


Shipping is oversupplied with complex, but important questions that require answers. Lloyd’s List, together with Lloyd’s List Intelligence, will seek to supply those answers, in partnership with the industry’s best and brightest, to compose a clearer picture of what the industry will look like from 2020.


Key Topics for Discussion


  • Will shipping ever recover its cost of capital?
  • What percentage of the global fleet will have installed and kept scrubbers?
  • How will low sulphur fuel uptake impact profits?
  • What are the biggest blockers to the operational efficiency of the industry?


The single panel of recognised industry ‘big thinkers’ will be moderated by Richard Meade and will debate those critical questions shaping the maritime markets.
