Chart A New Course At Shipping 2009

The premier shipping event of 2009 is upon us. That's right, Connecticut Maritime Association's Shipping 2009 is being held in Stamford, CT March 23-25. Amver is exhibiting in stand G-104 and hope our friends, readers, and Coast Guard shipmates will come by and visit.

2009 poses significant challenges to the shipping community. Nobody is immune from the impact the economy has on our operations. Budgets for everything from advertising to operations are tight. Crewing, chartering, bunkers; every aspect of shipping requires us to study the charts and make wise decisions. What better opportunity to hear from the experts is there than CMA Shipping 2009?

Shipping 2009 isn't just business. Don't forget about the Commodore Awards Dinner, afterglow cocktail receptions, and the usual amount of jocularity that accompanies this comprehensive conference and expo.

If you can't make it to this year's event don't worry. Amver will be live blogging and tweeting from the conference. We may even try our hand at video blogging. So stay tuned to the Amver blog or follow us on Twitter for the latest from Shipping 2009.
