Indeed, why attend a two-day virtual conference? The reasons, especially in 2021, are both strategic and tactical. Although oil demand is recovering from the pandemic-induced demand price crash of 2020, the global energy transition shows no sign of abating, fueled by a $2 trillion tsunami of stimulus money. Projects, and the related cargo and logistics needs, must evolve as renewables take a larger share of the global energy mix and oil demand gradually decelerates. That is why our theme for this year’s BBPC is “The Big Reset: breakbulk and the energy transition.” Over the course of two days we will explore the outlook for breakbulk and project cargo, renew and reinvigorate business relationships, and get a handle on what to expect in this period of momentous change.
