With seven months to go until its debut, registration for Geneva Dry is open and delegates are signing up in significant numbers.
Designed to be the annual global summit for the dry bulk community, Geneva Dry takes place next year on May 2 and 3 at the five-star President Wilson Hotel with early bird delegates able to avail themselves of a special discount at the hotel.
The event has quickly coalesced to encapsulate every rung of the commodities supply chain with confirmed speakers from trading houses, miners, shipowners and a wide variety of service providers from around the world.
The high-level summit is split into relevant sectors to make delegates’ time more targeted and rewarding. Sessions include: minor bulks; agri-commodities; coal; iron ore; and decarbonisation as well as an entire afternoon devoted to digital including a workshop on how to make data actionable as well as a debate on the future of fixing.
“Priced at just $650, these delegate passes give anyone access to meet some of the most important decision-makers in the dry bulk business. However, space is limited at the hotel, so people thinking about attending are advised to act fast,” commented Grant Rowles, Geneva Dry’s commercial director.
Senior executives from commodity powerhouses and top shipowners have committed to the show from the likes of Amaggi, Cargill, Cetus Maritime, CMB, CTM, Grindrod Shipping, Holcim Trading, JP Morgan, Lauritzen Bulkers, Lila Global, Mandarin Shipping, Montfort Trading, Pacific Basin Shipping, SwissMarine, Taylor Maritime, Trafigura and Wah Kwong Maritime with organisers delighted to also report that a top name from the World Economic Forum has agreed to moderate the event’s decarbonisation session.
