Capital Link’s 3rd Annual German Maritime Forum


Capital Link’s 3rd Annual German Forum will take place on Wednesday, November 8, 2023 at the Radisson Blu Hotel in Hamburg, Germany. The event is held in partnership with DNV and with the support of the German Shipowners’ Association (VDR) and the Hamburg Shipbrokers’ Association.

The Forum will be held the week of the Annual Eisbeinessen event, which brings together maritime leaders from all over the world.

The German maritime community continues to go through significant change and transformation across the board (shipowning, shipmanagement, corporate strategy, ESG, energy, finance and more) further accelerated by regulation, technology, and market forces.

The forum will feature German and International industry leaders, shipowners, financiers, on the various panels sharing their insight on issues specific to the German Maritime Community/Cluster and also on critical global industry topics.
