NEW YORK, NY -- (Marketwire) -- 03/05/13 -- Capital Link's 7th Annual Invest in International Shipping Forum will take place on Thursday, March 21, 2013 at the Metropolitan Club in New York City. An investor-focused event held every year in New York, influential C-level executives -- belonging to U.S. and foreign listed shipping companies -- will come together to discuss and examine the macroeconomic issues that are shaping and transforming international shipping today. The forum will provide a comprehensive review and outlook on the various shipping markets -- containers, dry bulk, LNG, tankers -- made more relevant by the annual release of companies' performance results. It also examines other critical issues facing shipping today, especially access to capital through the capital markets, banking and private equity.
Mrs. Katharina Stanzel, Managing Director at INTERTANKO, will give the luncheon keynote address.
FORUM STRUCTURE & PRESENTERS
