As part of the ShippingInsight 2021 Fleet Optimization and Innovation Conference and Exhibition, Foremost Group Chairperson and CEO Angela Chao will be participating in a virtual panel for shipowners titled “Lunch on the Bridge”. The panel, hosted by the Cayman Ship Registry, will be held on October 12, 2021.
This conference is the premier technology and innovation forum for maritime industry professionals to exchange ideas and discuss challenges vis-à-vis the transformation of the industry. The 2020 conference brought together more than 750 delegates from 21 countries, including over 100 shipping company executives. This year, Ms. Chao will be speaking alongside Jan-Willem van den Dijssel of Cargill, Tony Gurnee of Ardmore Shipping, Rob Hughes of GENCO, and Jones Alexandre Barros Soares of Petrobras.
Ahead of the conference, Ms. Chao commented: "This conference comes at a time of unprecedented challenge and opportunity in our industry. As shipowners, we are always working to ensure that our ships, practices, and approach best serve our charters and other stakeholders, particularly as it relates to operating through the pandemic, continued economic pressures, the move towards decarbonization, and of course, how we can best protect our oceans and waterways. I’m pleased to join this panel of esteemed colleagues as we discuss the future of our industry."
