“11th Annual Capital Link Greek Shipping Forum” – Thursday, February 20, 2020, Hilton Athens Hotel



Capital Link’s “11th Annual Capital Link Greek Shipping Forum” will take place on February 20, 2020 at the Hilton Athens Hotel in Athens, Greece. The Forum is organized in cooperation with the New York Stock Exchange and Nasdaq.

Bank of Communications Financial Leasing is the Lead Sponsor.

Greek shipping remains important to the maritime economy, constituting approximately 20 percent of the world’s shipping fleet. In spite of the volatile markets and economic downturn, Greek shipping professionals have consistently adapted to changing conditions, seeking out growth and opportunity rather than yielding to their circumstances.


The event will focus on three main areas:


  • The current trends and outlook of the global economy and the main commodity, energy and shipping markets.
  • The critical challenges the industry faces today related to geopolitical and regulatory developments, IMO 2020 options & strategies, marine engines & fuels and the transformational impact of technology.
  • As usual, Maritime Finance will be the core subject with focus on bank finance, capital markets, alternative funding mechanisms and private equity. There will be particular attention to Asian Leasing alternatives including Chinese, Korean and Japanese leasing options and panel of prominent Chinese Leasing firms.




In the context of the forum, Mr. George Procopiou, Founder – Dynacom Tankers Management, Sea Traders – Dynagas, will receive the “Capital Link Greek Shipping Leadership Award”. We recognize Mr. George Procopiou for his long standing achievements and contribution to the Greek and Global Shipping Industry.


April 16-17, Singapore  Women in Shipping 2020
