The fifth annual Maritime Standard Tanker Conference is scheduled to take place on Tuesday 24th November at the Dubai World Trade Centre, Dubai, UAE. The conference will be a little different this year, as a ‘hybrid’ event, with some speakers and attendees taking part in person in Dubai, and others joining online, using webinar systems, from around the region and across the world.

The first four editions of the event were extremely successful in raising the profile of the tanker shipping business, both regionally and globally, and this edition is expected to do the same. Now well 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 this sector of the shipping industry. This year’s event takes place at a time of considerable uncertainty and volatility following the pandemic. The impact on tanker shipping has been substantial, as have been the knock-on effects of the global economy. Simmering political disputes, and the increased use of trade sanctions have also shaped tanker demand in a way that would have been hard to predict even a short time ago. Tanker shipping will feel the impact of recent events for some time to come. However, there are market analysts who remain positive and suggest that, ultimately, the 2020s will be a decade of growth for the tanker shipping business.

The Maritime Standard Tanker Conference has been designed specifically for top executives involved in the tanker shipping market, and those companies which provide services to tanker shipping specialists. It will provide a valuable platform for industry leaders and experts to assess market trends and the future outlook, explore commercial opportunities and foster business relations.

The event will be extremely valuable for CEOs and other leading decision makers in the following sectors:

Tanker owners and operators
Ship managers
Terminal operators
Shipping finance
Ship repair
Education & Training
Maritime Law
Marine Insurance
Tank storage
