2020 was the year that nobody anticipated. Forecasts and strategy must be realigned to new expectations and scenarios.
Recovering from the immediate aftermath of a global pandemic must be done while simultaneously dealing with the twin strategic dilemmas of decarbonisation and digitalisation.

The annual Lloyd’s List Outlook Forum has established itself as the agenda-setting event of the maritime calendar, gathering an exclusive panel of the industry’s leading lights with Lloyd’s List and Lloyd’s List Intelligence’s experts to directly answer the critical questions shaping the maritime markets.

This year the forum will be going fully digital in our analysis. As part of the live debate attendees and speakers will be asked for their market expectations via a live voting system. The consensus view from the forum will then be combined with a series of online polls and the Lloyd’s List 2021 Outlook publication to create a unique and informed snapshot of the key issues that will determine the fortunes for shipping in the years to come.


  • What does the new normal look like for shipping?
  • How can shipping transition to zero carbon?
  • Is there a more sustainable business model for shipping?
  • Who will finance shipping in the new circular economy?
