(14 August, 2017) – Global law firm Reed Smith will be hosting a panel discussion on ‘Tomorrow’s Maritime World, Today’ on 12 September, as part of London International Shipping Week. The discussion will touch upon the impact of technology, trends in financing and insurance, and world politics impacting on shipping markets. 

With panellists representing a cross-section of the industry from technology solutions to ship management to legal, each will bring their unique experience to discuss upcoming trends and developments within shipping and the wider industry. 

London International Shipping Week is a bi-annual event which attracts business leaders from around the globe and from all sectors of the international shipping industry. 

“London has a long and deep history as a key market for the world’s shipping industry. While the ships and docks might be gone, the financiers, brokers and lawyers remain. We look forward to celebrating the importance of London as a shipping centre with many of our international colleagues who will be visiting for the week’s events” said Nick Shaw, global chair of Reed Smith’s shipping group.
