The Baltic Exchange will be holding its first briefing forum of 2019 on 21 March. Chaired by Philip Bacon, Icthus Marine, the event will address the issues, developments and pitfalls surrounding bunkers and bunker markets, with a more specific focus on the marine side of the bunker lifecycle through the three segments; buy, receive and use.
Our panel of expert presenters from both buying and classification angles will help bring clarity to what lies behind the purchasing spec and what issues and assumptions can cause frustrated contracts when taking delivery. Moving onto bunker consumption and performance, members of the StormGeo shipping team will give their insight into charterparty warrants, how they apply and how vessels are scrutinised and perceived to be performing on all sides of the charterparty.
The Briefing will be followed by a Wine Tasting of Italy (£25 per head) hosted by the Baltic Wine Society. Those interested are invited to join wine enthusiast, David Hughes in the Members Bar who will steer tasters through a journey from the wine terraces of the snowy Tyrolean Alps to the southern soaked isles of Italy. Attendees will be able to enjoy exciting new and sophisticated old varieties that are reshaping the world of wine as we know it. Accompanied by Mediterranean nibbles, all members and their guests are welcome.
The Forum commences from 5.30pm, with the wine tasting at 6.45pm. For more details, email: email@example.com
