More than 150 top executives from across the regional tanker business, as well as global participants are expected to attend the second annual Maritime Tanker Conference, later this year, in Dubai, UAE.

The event is expected to take place on October 24, at the Grosvenor House Hotel.

A high level group of expert speakers and panellists is being assembled by The Maritime Standard, and will include representatives from leading tanker owners and managers, port operators, trade organisations, brokers and analysts, law firms, financiers and technology providers, said a statement from the organisers.

The event has also secured sponsorship support from a number of high profile maritime companies and organisations, including: Kuwait Oil Tanker Company, DNV GL, Bahri and International Shipping and Logistics.

Supporting Associations for the event include: Dubai Council for Marine and Maritime Industries (DCMMI), UAE Shipping Association (UAESA), Organisation of the Islamic Shipowners Association (OISA), Indian National Shipowners’ Association (INSA), Women’s International Shipping and Trading Association (WISTA), Ceylon Association of Ship Agents (CASA), Pakistan Ship’s Agents Association (PSAA), Conqueror Freight Network, Globalia Logistics Network, Mission to seafarers, Specialist Freight Network, The Cooperative Logistics Network World Freight Network.

The one-day conference will focus on the challenges and opportunities that remain open to the tanker sector in the Middle East and the Indian Subcontinent today.

Speakers and panellists will assess global and regional economic and trade trends that will affect the movement of crude oil, products and petrochemicals. After key note speakers, individual sessions will highlight key issues, and solutions, and will assess likely investment patterns in ships and terminal facilities, as well as the development of technology and other support services.

Trevor Pereira, managing director of The Maritime Standard, said: “The inaugural event in 2016 was such a success that we have decided to return to the same venue and date to build on what proved to be a successful formula.”

“We will have some big names from the industry speaking and the high quality audience of decision makers and influencers, which will make this a conference that will add real value, in terms of information gathering and networking,” he said.

“The event is certain to generate a high level of interest so I would urge people to book now, as spaces will be strictly limited,” he concluded. – TradeArabia News Service
