The following is text of a news release from CMA Shipping:
(STAMFORD, Conn.) — In light of the current developments with COVID-19 in the United States and the rest of the world, we no longer feel it is viable to run the CMA Shipping event at the end of June. The health and safety of our attendees is of paramount importance to us and as such we want to ensure we can offer you a safe environment.
Our primary goal is to deliver an event which best serves our community. With this in mind, we have joined forces with SHIPPINGInsight to bring to you the first North American Shipping Week in Connecticut from Oct. 12-16. The events will run back to back in Connecticut and offer you the chance to attend two highly respected shipping conferences. With SHIPPINGInsight’s focus on technology and innovation, and CMA Shipping’s emphasis on the commercial aspects of shipping, this is a winning combination with something for everyone
SHIPPINGInsight will open the week at the Hyatt Regency Hotel in Greenwich, Conn., running Oct. 12-14, closing at midday. CMA Shipping will run as usual at the Hilton Stamford Hotel, between Oct. 14-16, starting at 2 p.m. on the Wednesday and finishing on Friday night with our 35-year anniversary Commodore Gala Dinner & Afterparty.
Coaches have been arranged to ferry full-week attendees over to the Hilton in time for the 2 p.m. opening of CMA Shipping.
Both events are bookable on their respective websites: www.cmashipping2020.com and www.shippinginsight.com. Anyone who is already registered for CMA Shipping has already been transferred onto the new CMA dates and no further action is required.
