Networking Cocktail

One of the main reasons professionals attend a conference is to network. The Maritime Standard (TMS) Networking Cocktails aims to promote networking between delegates and can be an opportune time to help both your company and your career.

The TMS Networking Cocktail evening at the end of the Tanker Conference is immensely popular and provides attendees with an opportunity to network with their counterparts in the tanker shipping and trade sectors and a platform for expanding business contacts.

You won’t find a better occasion to make new connections, and develop existing ones, than at The TMS Networking Cocktails. The event has a more casual and relaxed vibe than the office, but still maintains a professional overtone. Business cocktail parties are a great opportunity to break out of your shell, whether you are looking to explore career options, expand your knowledge about a company and its employees, or simply to broaden your network of contacts. Take advantage of the various opportunities provided by TMS Networking Cocktails to maximize your professional goals. Register here!
