ABOUT THE EVENT
This year Marine Money International will host for the 25th time the Marine Money Greek Ship Finance Forum on Tuesday 17th October 2023. This event will be the ideal opportunity to reflect on the past quarter century in Greek shipping as well as peer into the future of the industry both from a Greek and a global perspective. We will invite shipping personalities who have supported us over those 25 years to revisit old issues talked about over the years, and reflect on where the industry is now and is heading in the future. We will invite financiers of shipping from New York to Europe to Asia, and shipowners with experience of these finance sources. We will delve into the mission for cleaner shipping and talk to first movers in technology progress and implementation. Our Marine Money Greek conference is the foremost ship finance conference in Greece and attracts well over 300 delegates from Greece and the major shipping and finance centers of the world.
Register Now for our 25th anniversary Marine Money Greek Forum 2023 taking place on Tuesday, 17th October at the Eugenides Foundation, Syngrou Avenue, Athens. Together with our Conference Partner Bank of Communications Financial Leasing Co. Ltd. we sincerely hope that you will be part of the experience.
The last 25 years has been remarkable for Marine Money, Greece and global shipping. Such growth in world shipping fleets, increases in vessel values, markets reaching peaks and troughs, finance sources reaching round the world. Greek shipping has remained on top throughout.
The excitement in the shipping markets continues to grasp our attention with sector supply largely in good shape and macro issues affecting demand and enthusiasm. Join over 300 maritime executives from Greece and the world to hear shipping decision makers discuss the latest issues in shipping and finance and where the years ahead will take us.

strategy makes for a further challenge.
