Following the success of our inaugural 2018 year-end forum to promote visionary discussion and forecasting, Lloyd’s List will host a panel of industry leaders and pundits again this year to consider the coming, critical decade.

The discussion, to be held on the same day as the Lloyd’s List Europe Awards, will form part of our 2019 series of Excellence in Shipping awards and forums.

The forum will address the opportunities and challenges facing the shipping industry post-2020 in a decade likely to see irreversible change triggered by the imperatives of regulatory reforms and the drive towards decarbonisation.

  • Will Shipping ever recover its cost of capital?
  • What percentage of the global fleet will have installed and kept scrubbers?
  • How will low sulphur fuel intake impact profits?
  • What are the biggest blockers to the operational efficiency of the industry?

Each headline question will be debated by a panel of experts chaired by Richard Meade, Lloyd's List Managing Editor


  • Katharina Stanzel, Managing Director, Intertanko
  • Michael Parker, Chairman of Citi's shipping and logistics division
  • Knut Ørbeck-Nilssen, Chief executive officer of DNV GL Maritime
  • Dr Grahaeme Henderson, Vice-president of shipping and maritime at Shell International Trading and Shipping
  • Peter Sand, Chief Shipping Analyst at BIMCO
  • Mark Cameron, Executive Vice President and COO, Ardmore Shipping
