Mercator Media Ltd regret to announce the postponement of Propulsion & Future Fuels, which will now be taking place from 18-20 May 2021 at the Le Méridien Hotel, Hamburg, Germany.

The decision to reschedule has been made as a result of the continued impact of COVID-19 which threatens to restrict our ability to network and enjoy the more social aspects of the conference which have become a valuable tool to so many in recent years.

The primary concern continues to be the safety and well-being of all the speakers, sponsors and delegates who commit to taking time out of work year-on-year to be part of the conference. Propulsion & Future Fuels is excited to offer the opportunity to meet face-to-face once again to exchange knowledge and experience and make new connections in May next year.

Deputy Secretary General of BIMCO, Lars Robert Pedersen, and Martin Kroeger, Managing Director of the German Shipowners’ Association VDR, have reaffirmed their chairmanship of the 2021 event which remains dedicated to providing a meeting place for senior industry professionals seeking up to the minute information. The conference is the destination for the knowledge sharing on future fuel frontrunners such as ammonia, hydrogen, methanol, ethane, VOCs, wind and biofuels and next year will be no exception.

Marianne Rasmussen-Coulling, Events Director of Mercator Media Ltd, explained the decision;

“Propulsion & Future Fuels is an established and relied upon event among ship owners, senior executives in ship design, fuel supply, equipment, technology, classification societies and policy makers alike. In a time of such uncertainty, we have been working to ensure continuity for our community and that we deliver the proven meeting place to exchange the latest innovation in transoceanic zero-emission shipping.”

“We regret that we have had to make this decision but believe that this course of action is the best alternative in the face of the effects of COVID-19 and we look forward to delivering a successful event and meeting you in 2021.”

Save the date – 18-20 May 2021, Sofitel Alter Wall, Hamburg, Germany. We wish all of you in the industry a safe time over the coming months and we will see you next year!
