The annual Lloyd’s List Shipping Outlook Forum is established as the agenda-setting event of the maritime calendar, bringing together the expertise of Lloyd’s List and Lloyd’s List Intelligence with the industry’s key decision makers on a single panel.
Together, they will directly answer the most critical questions shaping maritime markets in 2023 and beyond.
2022 was meant to be the year that shipping and global trade was put back on an even keel post-pandemic but instead it faced a series of Black Swan events, including:
Russia’s war in Ukraine, which has led to escalating sanctions that have impacted global trade flows and patterns
A strictly enforced Covid policy in China that has caused port congestion and increasing delays
Ever more erratic and extreme climate events
All of which have led to prolonged issues along the supply chain.
Add to the mix the ongoing concerns that the industry faces with decarbonisation, digitalisation and innovation, the challenge for the experts will be to turn trepidation into preparation for what can be expected next year and further into the future.
Attendees will also get the chance to have their say in a series of interactive polls during the live event, helping shape the conversation and acting as a temperature check on market sentiment.
Among the topics to be discussed:
What has been the impact of Russian sanctions and what effect will they have on maritime going forward?
How will new regulations alter the industry’s focus on decarbonisation, from newbuildings to accessing finance?
What progress will there be with future fuels availability and infrastructure in the year ahead?
What needs to be done to accelerate the uptake of innovative new solutions to drive efficiency
Stay well-informed of the constantly changing industry and what it means to businesses and markets with curated news, commentary and analysis in the form of daily news articles and briefings, weekly and monthly digests, monthly magazine, podcasts, webinars, and market outlook reports.
