Relied upon by ship-owners, financiers, investors, ship managers, brokers, lawyers and accountants for the past 30 years, Marine Money International is constantly bridging the gap between ship-owners and the international capital markets.
Our publications, forums, books and other services are driven by a set of common goals: to make you money, save you money and provide you with access to investment opportunities and capital.
Business always happens at Marine Money Week, but this year, due to our prolonged separation as a community, the activity will be extraordinary.
Now in its 34th year, Marine Money Week is the largest annual gathering of the most active dealmakers in global ship finance.
It is always an extremely productive, efficient and enjoyable series of days in New York City. The days are filled with private meetings, chance encounters and the industry’s most engaging, high level plenary sessions. The nights are busy with drinks, dinners and deal making all over the amazing island of Manhattan.
Judging from current client feedback, we expect this year’s event to be exceptionally robust for several reasons. We hope you will secure your spot today.
First, the development of a pipeline of new relationships, new clients and new transactions has been nearly impossible during Covid, but is absolutely essential in a business like ours in which competition is fierce, the best investment opportunities must be seized quickly, and portfolios constantly run off. Thanks to the scale and caliber of attendees at Marine Money Week, the business origination is unmatched.
Second, many of our clients are consolidating their travel into fewer, but more productive, trips in 2022, with a near term focus on Spring and Summer travel. There is simply no way to see more existing and prospective clients from around the world than by participating in Marine Money Week.
Finally, The Pierre Hotel and New York City are lovely in June. It is an ideal opportunity to combine business with leisure.
