The latest issues affecting dry cargo vessel chartering – paper and physical - will come into sharp focus on November 7th in Singapore as TradeWinds and the FFA Brokers Association (FFABA) along with the Baltic Exchange, team up to offer guests and delegates a packed day of information, insight and inspiration.
The day comprises a series of presentations, forums and interactive discussions with the morning dedicated to TradeWinds Charterers Forum followed on immediately after lunch with the FFABA Forum which is the annual opportunity in Asia for market principles to gain insight into hedging freight risk and gain clarity on issues impacting the FFA industry. Delegates to both events will come together during a high-powered networking lunch to renew friendships and debate the issues raised.
Baltic Exchange Chief Executive Jeremy Penn welcomed the cooperation with TradeWinds: “We have a warm relationship with Tradewinds and working closely together comes naturally to us"
Commenting on the arrangement, TradeWinds Events’ director Jon Chaplin suggested teaming up was an easy decision. “ We’re particularly pleased to be working so closely with the FFABA & Baltic Exchange on this project with the clear goal to shine a light on what is being referred to by some as ‘the new cycle’ in dry bulk commodities. During the course of the day, we are offering valuable insight into the key areas for dry bulk charterers and owners – principally factors affecting transportation security, exposure and cost.”
He added, “We are also delighted to be supporting the annual Sailor’s Society Ball taking place at Singapore’s landmark Shangri-La Hotel the same evening. It’s always a wonderful occasion and strongly supported by the dry bulk shipping community, promising a thoroughly enjoyable and meaningful end to the day.”
Running consecutively in the conference rooms of the PARKROYAL Hotel on Pickering, the two events are by invitation only and those interested in attending are encouraged to contact the organizers without delay.
