The Maritime Standard Awards 2019
21 October 2019
Dubai, United Arab Emirates

A glittering, high quality occasion, attended by key decision makers from across the Middle East and the Indian Subcontinent, The Maritime Standard Awards recognise the achievements of the industry’s outstanding performers and celebrate and reward their successes. Despite being launched only five years ago, The Maritime Standard (TMS) Awards has earned the right to be referred to as the region’s premiere shipping and maritime awards event.

All five of the events that have taken place to date have be graced with the patronage of His Highness Sheikh Ahmed bin Saeed Al Maktoum, underlining the esteem in which they are held. Also, all have been staged at the prestigious Atlantis Ballroom, on The Palm, Dubai.

Each of the TMS Awards evenings has attracted over 700 of the region’s elite decision makers, including chairmen, chief executives and directors from many leading shipping companies, ports, terminal operators and maritime companies and organisations. Attendees have come not just from across the Middle East and Subcontinent, but globally also.

Preparations for the 6th Annual Maritime Standard Awards are now well underway. It has been confirmed that The Maritime Standard Awards will again this year take place at the Atlantis, The Palm, Dubai on Monday 21st October 2019. More details will appear on this website as and when they are confirmed.

The Maritime Standard Tanker Conference
22 October 2019
Dubai, United Arab Emirates

The fourth annual The Maritime Standard Tanker Conference will take place on Tuesday 22nd October at the Atlantis, the Palm, Dubai. The first three events have been both extraordinarily successful and popular, raising the profile of the tanker shipping business regionally and globally. The selection of a larger venue in 2018 paid off with a much-increased delegate attendance and an even bigger audience is anticipated this year. Already established as one of the leading events on the tanker shipping calendar, the Conference is aimed at key decision makers and high-level policy takers within the tanker shipping business. This year’s event takes place at a time of considerable volatility and uncertainty within the tanker shipping business. While some of the market fundamentals appear positive, there are significant challenges posed by the political-economic context, as well as the imposition of new environmental rules. The Conference will focus on key market trends in the crude, products, chemicals and gas tanker markets, giving attendees a unique insight into the opportunities that exist and how to capitalise on them. It will also assess ancillary sectors, such as the bunker supply, law, ship agency and supplies, and petrochemicals trades. The event is a must-attend, not only for tanker owners and operators, but all companies that provide products and services to this sector of the shipping industry. The intention is that attendees will leave the TMS Tanker Conference with a much clearer idea about future trade patterns, and market influences, so they are better placed to build the foundations for longer term business growth.

The Maritime Standard Ship Finance and Trade Conference
6 November 2019
Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates

The fifth annual The Maritime Standard Ship Finance and Trade Conference will be held at the Sofitel Abu Dhabi Corniche on 6th November 2019. It will seek to build on the reputation for quality information sharing and networking earned over the past four years.

In 2018 the Conference attracted a high-quality audience of around 150 executives and decision makers from across the industry. They assembled to discuss and debate the key issues and trends facing the shipping and ports market in the Middle East and the Indian Subcontinent, with a particular focus on financial issues. The audience heard from some of the best-known personalities in the business, all leaders in their chosen fields, who highlighted the importance of building partnerships to help accelerate investment-led growth within the industry.

Keynote speaker, H.E. Ahmed Shareef Alkhoori, Director General, Federal Transport-Land & Maritime, set the scene, underlining some of the positive changes being planned for the country’s maritime laws, and the proactive role the UAE is now taking in its role as an IMO Council member. He was followed by Abu Dhabi Ports chief executive, Capt. Mohamed Juma Al Shamisi, who gave the second keynote presentation, urging financial institutions to work more closely in partnership with ports and shipping companies.

The main session assessed how infrastructure and asset investment can unlock trade potential after which conference delegates were treated to a special ‘up close’ question and answer interview session with Sanjay Mehta, Chairman, S One Capital, and Bibop Gresta, Chairman, Hyperloop. Other sessions assessed the future of ship finance and in particular the implications of changes in this sector for the market in Middle East and the Indian Subcontinent, and also how stakeholders can support regional trade development.

After the presentations there was a networking opportunity at which attendees and panelists were able to continue discussions about issues raised during the event.

For the 2019 TMS Ship Finance and Trade Conference, currently at the planning stage, a similarly high caliber list of speakers will be assembled. Based on the very positive experience of the first four events, this will be a not-to-be-missed Conference that will not only feature a chance to learn from industry experts but will provide extensive opportunities for networking as well.
