CMA 2016 – local talent, global impact

The Connecticut Maritime Association (CMA) is pleased to present a powerful program for CMA Shipping 2016 – Local Talent, Global Impact.

For the shipping industry, Local Talent, Global Impact is a phrase that is as relevant if one were sitting in Singapore, London, Oslo or Athens, indeed any of the dynamic places across the globe where the business of shipping and trade takes place. The commercial activities and business ideas of one center immediately ripple throughout the shipping universe, it is one of the great elements of the business, which we can all appreciate.

As a general topic this year, it of course allows us to showcase the dynamism of the wide flung CMA community, but it also allows us to celebrate the absolute value of the global shipping network – and the importance of meeting to share ideas, develop business, expand markets, and improve the business. We deeply appreciate here, the great ideas, energy and Talent of every local shipping center as we all focus on the healthy admirable future of the Global business.

At the CMA, we are enormously fortunate to have the best input from our industry's most thoughtful and successful leaders.

Visit the following web-link to learn more and review the initial conference agenda: From this point on the agenda will be fine-tuned almost every day, adding new sponsors, new speakers and new topics, so check back often for all the updates.

Some of the most important industry leaders will tackle the issues we all face right now: so whether you want to discuss markets, finance or want to share ideas on what exactly needs to be done on any regulatory front, or exchange ideas on bunkers, big data, leadership or the human element, it is all available to you on March 21, 22 & 23, 2016 at the Hilton Hotel in Stamford, Connecticut.

While we have worked hard to create a valuable conference event, we are also pleased to acknowledge that the trade exhibits, special events put on by INTERTANKO, WISTA and others, along with a full slate of 'private label' working seminars ensure that the business networking opportunities will be non-stop.

The event concludes with the 2016 Commodore Award, which this year will be presented to Paddy Rodgers, CEO of Euronav N.V. It promises to be a grand finale to a spectacular event.

We take delivering a useful, commercially valuable and busy three days for you very seriously. If there is any aspect of the event we can elaborate on for you, please do not hesitate to contact us. We want your stay to deliver meaningful value and whether you are attending the conference or just visiting the exhibits, we are committed to your success.
