This year’s Global Shippers’ Summit will include an impressive program featuring leading speakers from industry, government and academia including Anne Bergenfelt, cabinet member and adviser to Connie Hedegaard, European Commissioner for Climate Action and Professor Alan McKinnon of Kuhne University in Hamburg and Heriot-Watt University in Edinburgh. The Summit will include a seminar on Oct. 22 and the Global Shippers’ Forum’s (GSF) annual meeting and policy and information programme for shippers on Oct. 23.
The Summit will cover key policy and regulatory issues impacting shippers’ global supply chains in 2013, including a review of global trading conditions and round table discussions with industry supply chain partners including the International Chamber of Shipping and Christopher Koch, President and CEO of the World Shipping Council.
These leading industry figures will be joined by international regulatory bodies such as the International Maritime Organisation and leading global shippers to discuss and debate the key regulatory issues of the day.
The pioneering GSF Maritime Safety Campaign, aimed at promoting high standards of safety in shipping, will be launched at the Summit. The launch will see the introduction of GSF best practice material and the signing of the maritime safety charter.
GSF Secretary General, Chris Welsh, said, “This really is an unmissable, action-packed event for shippers engaged in global supply chain logistics, in particular for those wanting to influence and shape the regulatory and commercial nature of international shipping and aviation markets.”
The Global Shippers’ Summit will take place on 22-23 October 2012 at the Institution of Civil Engineers, One Great George Street, Westminster, London SW1, at a cost of $300 (£195) per delegate. Non-members of the GSF can attend on Monday 22 October only. For further details email firstname.lastname@example.org
