Speakers 2021

The Maritime Standard Tanker Conference 2021

The date and location of the sixth annual The Maritime Standard Tanker Conference has now been confirmed. It will take place on Tuesday 23rd November 2021 at Dubai World Trade Centre, Dubai. As well as featuring a packed programme of presentations and panels during the day, it will once again offer an opportunity for speakers and attendees to network informally at a special evening reception afterwards. The Maritime Standard Tanker Conference is taking place the day after the market leading TMS Awards, to maximise attendance and ensure high profile participants.

The fifth annual The Maritime Standard Tanker Conference, which was held in November 2020, organised by Flagship Events, also took place at the Dubai World Centre. Significantly it was held in an innovative hybrid format, with speakers taking part both in person in the ballroom and online using video conferencing tools. Despite the difference in structure, to adapt to the constraints imposed by the pandemic The Maritime Standard Tanker Conference had probably the best speaker line up to date, and attracted a high number of in person delegates. A similar format is likely to be adopted for the 2021 event, building on the experiences gained.

Keynote speakers in 2020 included HE Eng. Ahmed Mohammed Shareef Ali Al Khoori, Director General, FTA Land and Maritime; Captain Abdulkareem Al Masabi, Chief Executive of ADNOC Logistics and Services; and Shehab Al Rahma, Manager, Oil Terminal, DP World. The Main Session which followed sustained the quality with highlights including presentations by Ali Shehab, Chief Executive of Kuwait Oil Tanker Company (KOTC); Mrs HK Joshi, Chairperson and Managing Director, the Shipping Corporation of India; Khamis Juma Buamim, Chairman, KBI-UAE; Khalid Alhammad, Director Fleet Management, Bahri Ship Management; Ibrahim Al Nadhairi, CEO, ASYAD Shipping and Drydock Services; Petros Doukas, Mayor, Sparta; Chris Peters, CEO, Eships, and Jesper Kjaedegaard, Senior Advisor, Marcura Group. These speakers reflected positively on the opportunities and challenges the tanker trades face globally and in the Middle East and provided an in-depth assessment of the impact of the pandemic and the lessons that need to be learned.

Afternoon sessions looked at the importance of creating support services and structures, as well as the technical and regulatory challenges facing the industry. Again, these featured top level speakers with a wide range of different perspectives.
