I very much enjoyed listening to the presentations. The panel was excellent. It was a larger turnout than last year and that reflects interest in the market at the moment. I felt the optimism in the room this morning and the positive attitude that everybody seemed to have towards the tanker markets.

I think the India story we heard was a great one and the numbers are certainly very positive. Generally, we can see the light at the other end of the tunnel now, and the key players that are remaining have ridden out rough seas over the last decade.

From my perspective it was very interesting to hear the views of the operators and their confidence in the future, which obviously has an impact on us as shipbuilders. It is nice to see the industry pulling together and talking about optimism, rather than pessimism. Overall there was an extremely interesting set of speakers all of whom were very good.

A fundamental benefit was hearing from various industry leaders to get a range of perspectives about the industry, from different stakeholders. It helps you to rethink where the industry is headed. The event is also an opportunity to meet like-minded people and network with some great business leaders.

If people haven’t attended the TMS Tanker Conference before I would certainly recommend that they do so. They will learn a lot of new things and be more aware of what is going on in the market.
