27 - 28 April 2017 - Raffles City Convention Centre, Singapore

Risks, Rewards, Response & Results in the life and time of a casualty – the industry debates

LOC is very proud and honoured to host the 2nd Asia Marine Casualty Forum in Singapore following the resounding success of the first in 2015 and enthusiastic requests from across the industry to repeat the non-profit making event, arranged by the industry for the industry.

Once again we have a most impressive line-up of international speakers, all of whom are recognised specialists in their subjects and leaders in the industry.  They come from maritime authorities, P&I Clubs, hull & machinery underwriters, salvage contractors, marine lawyers and specialist consultants.

The number of sponsors has more than doubled and supporting organisations too have significantly increased providing testament to the success of the forum and the principles on which it is based.

Delegate attendance is by invitation as before and up to 350 are anticipated in the prestigious Raffles City Convention Centre. A cocktail party for speakers and delegates will take place after Day 1 in the Sky Suites @ Equinox in Swissotel with its breathtaking views from the 69th floor.

The Forum is a cornerstone of Singapore Maritime Week and so do not miss an opportunity to register your interest now and have the opportunity to learn from, and share experiences with, the leaders in the world of marine casualties.
