What you can expect at CMA Shipping 2021

Your Leading Industry Event Returns

Last year we moved CMA Shipping online to ensure each attendee still had the chance to collaborate and network with as many people and businesses as possible while hearing from the CMA’s global network of speakers, and of course to celebrate Lois Zabrocky as the 2020 Commodore.

For 2021 we will continue to use digital technology to enhance the overall event experience, and we can’t wait to bring the community back together again, in-person, safely and securely.

Part of North American Shipping Week

We are once again joining forces with SHIPPINGInsight to bring to you the second North American Shipping Week taking place October 11 - 15, 2021. 

With SHIPPINGInsight’s focus on technology and innovation, and CMA Shipping’s emphasis on the commercial aspects of shipping, this is an winning combination to give value to all attendees. 

Agenda Themes

Focusing on bringing the industry together after the last two years, this year’s agenda will focus on the lessons learned but also the opportunities that lie ahead as trade gets back on track with shipping leading the way.

We will deliver a broad range of presentations and panels across 9 different tracks so you can pick choose the sessions you would like to attend. Tracks include The Human Element, Insurance, Greener Shipping, Bunkering, Legal & The Shipping Academy – PLUS the usual keynotes, shipping association panels and of course – the Commodore Debate.

Sponsorship & Exhibition Opportunities

Business is all about people. CMA Shipping brings together the full spectrum of the industry. 

Demonstrate your thought leadership and align your brand with innovative content.

We have a wide range of sponsorship, exhibition and branding opportunities for the event - all complemented by pre-event digital opportunities. Contact us today to reserve your package.

The Commodore Award

Passing the hat and enjoying an evening of entertainment and good humor at the annual Commodore Award Gala Dinner is the pinnacle of the CMA event. 

More information on our 2021 Commodore will be announced soon!
