Crisis after crisis in shipping
«NHH Shipping Conference – LeaderShip» is coming up. Now, they announce the line-up of more than 15 top speakers from the business and academia.
November 8, decision makers in the blue business and researchers will meet to exchange knowledge and increase their learning for the common good.
In cooperation with NHH Norwegian School of Economics, Bergen Shipowners’ Association and Maritime Bergen, has created the «The NHH Shipping Conference – LeaderShip». More than 15 top speakers from the business and academia are lined up.
Professor and shipping expert Roar Os Ådland invites all interested in shipping to attend the conference at Hotel Terminus in Bergen.
The conference speakers will present and debate the fundamental changes that effect and cause uncertainty and challenges for Norway and the shipping industry, according to Professor Ådland.
– We will address several urgent topics, he says:
– Amidst soaring inflation, continuous supply chain disruptions and an urgent energy security crisis following the war in Ukraine, are shipping emissions still a priority for the shipping industry’s stakeholders? Or is the uncertainty of which fuel to choose, and the cost of shifting, too big to handle?
The shipping industry has dealt with major challenges in recent years, Siv Remøy-Vangen, CEO at Maritime Bergen, says:
`Over the last years, our industry has dealt with crisis after crisis – where the price fall of oil hit the offshore industry hard in 2015. Equally hard, our industry was paralyzed, as the rest of the world, by covid. We were beginning to look at the end of the pandemic; we faced a new situation affecting us with the Russian war in Ukraine´, says Remøy-Vangen.
– Our goal is to see shipping lead the field
How these factors are affecting the industry´s day-to-day operation are hot topics, also at the forthcoming shipping conference in Bergen.
`The conference is an excellent meeting place for industry actors interested in factors influencing our day-to-day operation, as well as meeting people with similar interests. A conference that has been a privilege for Maritime Bergen to cooperate with two great organizations such as NHH and Bergen Shipowners Association´.
