Join BIMCO’s seminar in Dubai on the new ship financing term sheet


We are pleased to invite you to join us in Dubai on 16 October for a seminar hosted jointly by BIMCO and Citibank on BIMCO’s new standard term sheet for bilateral ship financing transactions, SHIPTERM. 

The seminar will take place at the Dubai International Financial Centre from 09:00 to 10:15 followed by a networking reception finishing at 11:30. 

The seminar is free of charge and open to BIMCO members and non-members.

Participants will receive a copy of the SHIPTERM booklet containing the standard term sheet and explanatory notes.

You will meet a panel of representatives of the subcommittee that developed SHIPTERM:

  • Francis Sarre, Compagnie Maritime Belge (chairperson of the subcommittee)
  • Christopher Conway, Citibank
  • Olga Petrovic, Linklaters LLP

A general introduction will be made by BIMCO’s General Counsel Christian Hoppe, who will explain the background for the term sheet project and why BIMCO has decided to develop a standard ship financing document.
