Founded in 2010 by like minded individuals with a passion for Shipping, the Young Professionals In Shipping Network (YPSN) HK has grown from an informal social gathering of friends and colleagues into an incorporated non-profit association, holding events attracting over 200 attendees. With strong support from the shipping community, the YPSN has gone from strength to strength and we now have over 700 members from a wide range of reputable companies and institutions in Hong Kong. Our aim is to provide a relaxed forum for young professionals to network and interact with their peers within the industry and more importantly, to promote the Shipping Industry as an exciting and viable career path for the next generation! Through regular networking events, seminars and sporting activities we aim to bring people together from all sectors of the shipping industry including Owners, Charterers, Managers, Brokers, Legal & Insurance.
As of 2012 YPSN PRC was established to expand the network with successful events held both in Shanghai and Beijing. http://ypsnprc.com
