Why Attend

Why attend The Maritime Standard Tanker Conference? The Maritime Standard Tanker Conference organised by The Maritime Standard offers so many benefits that you really should be making time for them. Here are some of the main reasons you will gain if you attend a TMS conference:

Stay at the cutting edge

The Maritime Standard Tanker Conference ensure you stay at the cutting edge of the shipping industry. Hearing case studies from major players, watching tip-filled talks and getting a glimpse into how competitors operate are all reasons to attend The Maritime Standard Tanker Conference. Keynote presentations offer valuable learning opportunities. And seeing someone share their story in person can drive a message home in a way that is different to reading an article. The result of attending this conference is that you go back to base with fresh ideas and approaches that make you more effective and efficient at work.

Meet experts in person

The Maritime Standard Tanker Conference offers a chance to meet key people that can positively influence your business, sharing the same space. Take the chance to have coffee with a potential customer, share a business idea and get an opinion from an industry expert or make a connection that might lead to you finding your next business partner. You will find top executives and policy makers within the shipping industry at TMS Tanker conference. Attending will give you the opportunity to connect with them in person.

Networking opportunities

The Maritime Standard Tanker Conference provides plenty of chances for attendees to network, form new relationships and strengthen existing ones. Get some one-to-one time over registration, coffee breaks, lunch or cocktails. At the conference sessions you may find yourself sitting next to potential customers or generating leads. The possibilities for networking are endless. In your absence, you can be sure that your competitors will be taking full advantage.

In a new space

It‘s easy to find ourselves in a rut. Sitting in the same chair, in the same office can keep us from fresh thinking and new ideas. Breaking out of the office, sitting at a TMS conference surrounded by key decision makers and high-level opinion formers within the maritime industry can spark new approaches that will help grow your businesses.

Tapping into the energy of like-minded individuals

There is nothing like being in a room of people who, like you, are willing to take time away from the office to learn something new. When you sit in a TMS conference, you will quickly discover that you are not alone in wanting to improve your skills and bring something back to your office or organisation.

Invest in yourself

Recognising that you still have things to learn, and can get better, is an important step towards career development. So, attending a TMS conference is an investment in yourself, as well as your company. When you purchase a TMS conference delegate pass, you are investing in personal growth.

Learn from the best

The speakers at TMS conference are not just industry leaders with years of experience and deep insights into the shipping industry. They are also engaging, inspiring thinkers who are passionate about sharing what they have learned and helping others enhance their skills. At TMS conferences, the speakers don’t just present what is happening right now. They also look ahead to what is around the corner. These forward-looking insights from the best in the business will help you plan future strategies.

Share what you learn

We send all delegates copies of all the speaker slides. So, as well as keeping them as a permanent record, you can use them to pass on what you learned to the rest of your team.

Have fun

Being in business should be rewarding and fun. TMS conferences add a layer of enjoyment to managing your career growth by mixing in a social aspect with learning. Never underestimate the power of a little fun mixed with some interesting people! TMS conferences provide a unique convergence of networking, learning, and fun in a single package.

I very much enjoyed listening to the presentations. The panel was excellent. It was a larger turnout than last year and that reflects interest in the market at the moment. I felt the optimism in the room this morning and the positive attitude that everybody seemed to have towards the tanker markets.

I think the India story we heard was a great one and the numbers are certainly very positive. Generally, we can see the light at the other end of the tunnel now, and the key players that are remaining have ridden out rough seas over the last decade.
Julian PanterJulian PanterVP Business Development,

From my perspective it was very interesting to hear the views of the operators and their confidence in the future, which obviously has an impact on us as shipbuilders. It is nice to see the industry pulling together and talking about optimism, rather than pessimism. Overall there was an extremely interesting set of speakers all of whom were very good.

I was very impressed by the high caliber and quality of the speakers. It's one of the very few times where you see so many people that have a real interest in this market, many of whom are senior executives of tanker shipping companies. I was pleasantly surprised with the optimism in this part of the world, where there is also a lot of dynamism.
