  NEW YORK, NY, Feb 27 (MARKET WIRE) -- 
Capital Link's 6th Annual Invest in International Shipping Forum will
take place on Monday, March 19, 2012 at the Metropolitan Club in New York
City. The investor-focused event is held every year in New York, where
influential C-level executives belonging to U.S. and foreign listed
shipping companies, analysts, financiers and market experts will come
together to discuss and examine the macroeconomic issues that are shaping
and transforming international shipping today. 

    The forum will provide a comprehensive review and outlook on the various
markets, containers, dry bulk, tankers and offshore drilling -- made more
relevant by the recent release of companies' annual performance results.
It will also examine critical issues affecting the shipping industry,
such as bank financing, access to the capital markets and other forms of
alternative financing, restructuring, bankruptcy, investment
opportunities in shipping today and in ship recycling.
