The shipping community meets in Limassol - Maritime Cyprus 2023 Conference


( The "Maritime Cyprus" Conference is organised every two years by the Cyprus Shipping Deputy Ministry in cooperation with the Cyprus Shipping Chamber and the Cyprus Union of Shipowners. It was first established in 1989 and since then, has grown into one of the world’s most significant and most attended shipping conferences. Its status now gives it a prominent position in the calendar of many shipping executives, including owners and managers as well as those in charge of organisations with shipping-related activities. The "Maritime Cyprus" Conference attracts to Cyprus approximately 800 shipping executives from around the globe.
