Abu Dhabi hosts Maritime Standard Ship Finance and Trade Conference

Abu Dhabi, 19th April 2018: The fourth annual The Maritime Standard Ship Finance and Trade Conference will take place on November 6th 2018 at the Sheraton Abu Dhabi Hotel and Resort. The popular one day event is expected to attract over 150 senior executives from across the shipping, ports, finance, banking and legal sectors, who will gather to debate and discus the key issues and challenges facing the industry.

The event will kick-off with keynote presentations from renowned business leaders. There will then follow distinct conference sessions that will tackle topical themes covering regional trade patterns, ship finance, ports and shipping. Case studies, highlighting how the financial sector can help facilitate the ongoing development of regional shipping and ports to the benefit of trade and economic growth, will be a feature of the event.

A top quality panel of expert speakers is being lined up by The Maritime Standard, and will include representatives from leading ship owners and managers, port operators, trade organisations, brokers and analysts, law firms and financiers. The event has also secured sponsorship support from a number of top maritime companies and organisations, including Abu Dhabi Ports as the host sponsor, Kuwait Oil Tanker Company, International Shipping and Logistics FZE and Bestar Consultancy Pvt. Ltd. The event is endorsed by The Federal Transport Authority-Land & Maritime. Supporting Associations for the event include: UAE Shipping Association (UAESA), The Organisation of Islamic Shipowners’ Association (OISA), The Dubai Council for Marine and Maritime Industries (DCMMI); Dubai Ship Agents Association (DSAA); Federation of National Associations of Ship Brokers and Agents (FONASBA); Institute of Chartered Shipbrokers; Nautical Institute; Indian National Shipowner’s Association (INSA); Pakistan Ship Agents Association (PSAA) and the Baltic Ports Organisation.

Trevor Pereira, managing director of The Maritime Standard says, “We are returning to Abu Dhabi to hold this conference for the fourth time, and we will be looking to build on the tremendous strides forward that have made over the past three years. The event is already well established on the UAE shipping industry calendar, attracting a wide range of industry experts, and it has become an event that anyone in the shipping and maritime industry will benefit from attending. It is truly a unique occasion and the quality of the speakers and the decision makers in the audience really sets it apart from other conferences in this sector.”

Abu Dhabi Ports is a strong supporter of the Ship Finance and Trade Conference and believes the event is in a tremendous position to add value within the region. Captain Mohamed Juma Al Shamisi, chief executive, says, “We are very excited to be hosting The Maritime Standard Ship Finance and Trade Conference once again in Abu Dhabi. This conference brings together banks, financial institutions and shipping companies under the same roof and is the only one of its kind in the Middle East & Indian Subcontinent. I would encourage any business active in the shipping, ports and maritime sectors, as well as the financial world, to support, participate and attend this important conference.”
