The Maritime Standard, the Dubai-based specialist events organiser and publisher, has announced that the sixth edition of the popular TMS Tanker Conference series will take place in Dubai on November 23rd, 2021. It will return to Dubai’s World Trade Centre where last year’s ‘hybrid’ event, seamlessly blending participation both in person and virtually online, offered up an exciting and fresh format, creating innovative, but safe, opportunities for engagement and participation.

Trevor Pereira, Managing Director of The Maritime Standard, says, “Last year we were the only company able to hold a maritime conference in person, with 150 people in the ballroom and another 100 online, and we plan to build on that positive experience again in 2021. As the only tanker trade event that took place physically in 2020 it undoubtedly helped sustain the momentum of the market and we believe it will do so again. There is a clear sentiment as we recover from the depths of the pandemic that people want to go back to face to face meetings and this event will certainly be the one for people in the tanker shipping business to attend and meet up with friends and clients as they did in the past.”

The conference programme that is being put together will feature three separate sessions packed with top quality and influential leaders from the regional and global tanker business and support sectors. The event will take stock of the effects of the global pandemic and assess likely trends in the crude oil chemicals, and products trades. It will also spotlight the key operational, technical, and environmental issues facing the tanker shipping business and possible solutions. The Conference will further look at new technology developments, including digitalization, regulatory factors, and the development of support services, amongst other topics.

Top quality presentations from leading figures in the tanker shipping business will give participants a privileged insight into what the future holds for the regional tanker trades as well as a global perspective. TMS is putting together an informative, thought-provoking and insightful programme that will draw on the expertise of industry leaders who will lead inclusive discussion and debate. Further details of the programme will be released in the near future. To keep updated go to:
