Session 2  
The Odyssey through the regulations, trade and the ship finance seas.

Challenges, opportunities and risks in global trade, shipping, economy, regulations and geopolitics. Risk management vs. the entrepreneurial spirit vs. regulation vs. politics vs. technological breakthrough...., too many fronts to fight? Will we experience the perfect "trifecta" this year and into 2022/2023 with all major commodity shipping (dry, energy, container) going into significant up cycles? If we agree that the "trifecta" is indeed coming is this a combined result of tight tonnage supply, commodity inflation and post Covid-19 euphoria? And, if so, will there be new trade patterns, new infrastructure investment and what do we need to do to protect the roaring 2020's?

Session 3
From now to eternity?
The zero-carbon ships of the future and what to do until they are ready
Are the politics of Climate change and the discussion of dual fuel vessels and new technology alternative fuel vessels clouding our judgement and pushing us into investments that are not sustainable ?
A clear view of the design of the ship of the future: sustainability, innovations, sense and nonsense about fuels, new ships, new technology, and the commercial viability of all new technological inventions and innovations. What insights do we have into the commercial viability of future ship designs? Who will take the investment risk on these technologies? Are there consolidations and acquisitions imperatives towards fleet sustainable modernization? Scrubbers or fuels or slow steaming – still a dilemma? Will there ever be a zero-carbon ship design? Is the world ready for any of the above?

The capital providers – shipowners, Dialogue
Is there money out there to fund a rising market, both on the commodity trade side but also on the transportation side ? How can the capital providers fulfil the needs of shipowners? What are the trends in banking, alternative ship finance, bonds and other models of finance and investments? What are the shipowners' requirements from the capital providers? Are there efficient finance models financing the short sea shipping? Should there be a role for governments and charterers?
