Lloyd’s List Gothenburg summit will map a volatile 2020

The Lloyd’s List group will launch 2020 with its annual Executive Meeting of shipping leaders and analysts to share views on how best to navigate what is forecast be a year of instability

Programme will include geopolitics, sanctions implications, the impact on trade patterns of shifting political balance, energy realignment, technological advances and fleet and fuel developments

THE Executive Meeting, a fixture in global shipping since the early 1990s, will be themed on Untested Waters Ahead: Navigating political risks, sanctions, trade distortions and environmental demands.

Hosted by Lloyd’s List Intelligence, the day’s programme will include geopolitics, sanctions implications, the impact on trade patterns of shifting political balance, energy realignment, technological advances and fleet and fuel developments.

LLI head of consulting Chris Pålsson said: “All the signs are there that 2020 will likely be a pivotal year for the direction of shipping, with the added challenge that business leaders should expect the unexpected.

“Our programme and speakers will give attendees the facts, trends and scenarios they will need to help them plan the best way forward for their businesses in untested waters.”

Among organisations and companies speaking will be Unctad, the UN’s Geneva-headquartered trade and investment arm, ABB, APM Terminals, BIMCO, Business Sweden, Kongsberg-Rolls-Royce, Kuehne + Nagel, Stena Bulk and Shell.

Mr Pålsson said he and Lloyd’s List group colleagues — including director Niklas Bengtsson, chief correspondent Richard Clayton and markets editor Michelle Wiese Bockmann — will share outlook findings extracted from unique LLI data and forecasting.

The presentations will include a five-year outlook for new ship ordering and deliveries.

“The world as we know it is rapidly changing. The potential impact on trade from the changes of direction of political development is substantial, particularly in the medium to long term,” said Mr Pålsson. “Our Executive Meeting will take some of the planning fear out the minds of our delegates.”

Speakers will include:

• Kai Miller, manager seafreight, Kuehne + Nagel;
• Luisa Rodriguez, economic affairs officer, Unctad;
• Lena Sellgren, chief economist, Business Sweden;
• Claire Wright, business economics manager, Shell.

The Executive Meeting will be held at the Museum of World Culture in Gothenburg, Sweden, on January 16, 2020.

Attendance is limited. Delegate pricing of €595 will be discounted for early-bird registration before 31 December. Discount for block booking is also offered.
