The next “Maritime Cyprus” Conference is scheduled to take place in Limassol between 9 and 12 October 2022 with physical presence.  The Maritime Cyprus Conference is an established biennial event organised by the Shipping Deputy Ministry in cooperation with the Cyprus Shipping Chamber and the Cyprus Union of Shipowners and has grown into one of the world’s most significant shipping conferences since it was first organized back in 1989.

The Conference brings together more than 1000 participants, including shipowners, shipping executives, regulators and state officials from all over the world, including high-calibre speakers. Maritime Cyprus provides the opportunity to the participants to become familiar with the strong maritime tradition of Cyprus and the buzzing maritime cluster in cosmopolitan Limassol. Our endeavour is for Cyprus to maintain and enhance its role as an advanced, proactive, competitive maritime nation with a positive contribution both in Europe and internationally.

The main theme of this year’s Conference is “Embracing Change: a choice or necessity?”.  

The panel discussions included in this year’s programme,  with the participation of high profile invited shipping specialists,  will be discussing the main challenges shipping faces today (click here for the conference programme):
