CMA Shipping 2017
Stamford, CT

Blank Rome LLP is proud to be a sponsor of the Connecticut Maritime Association’s (“CMA”) Shipping 2017 Conference and Exposition, which will be held on March 20-22, 2017, at the Hilton Hotel in Stamford, CT.

Blank Rome Partner Matthew Thomas will be speaking on “The Impact on Shipping of the Trump Administration” during the “Market Opportunities in the Time of Donald Trump and BREXIT” breakout session, on Tuesday, March 21, at 2:15 p.m.

This annual conference, now in its 32nd year, continues its tradition of bringing together the international shipping community in North America’s leading commercial shipping center to discuss critical industry topics, trends, and updates. This year’s conference theme, “Capitalizing on a Changing Industry,” will speak to the transformational change occurring in the shipping industry, currently causing nearly every ship owner, cargo owner, investor, trader, lawyer, shipbroker, trade association, flag state, insurance underwriter, shipyard, and other service provider to adapt their business platforms and processes. In addition to keynote addresses, panel discussions, presentations, CLE sessions, and breakout sessions, the conference will offer valuable networking opportunities, luncheons, receptions, and the annual Commodore Gala Dinner.
