Speakers and panellists confirmed include Sheikh Talal Al Khalid Al Sabah of Kuwait Oil Tanker Company; Khamis Buamim, group chief executive and managing director of Gulf Navigation; Naser Al-Abdulkareem of Bahri; Philip Tinsley of Bimco; Captain Harihar Prasad of McQuilling; Jasamin Fichte of Fichte & Co; Rania Tadros of Ince & Co; and Yudhisthir Khatau of Varun Shipping.

Individual sessions will highlight current trends in terms of tanker operations and demand, investment in new ships and shore side facilities and the development of technical and other support services, it added.

The event has won the sponsorship support of many leading shipping organisations, including KOTC, DNV GL, ClassNK, Dubai Maritime City, Islamic P&I Club and Mercmarine, it said.

Speaking on the event, Trevor Pereira, managing director of The Maritime Standard, said: “This event is being held the day after The Maritime Standard Awards and so we are confident it will attract a significant, high quality audience of decision makers and influential executives, who will be able to hear the views of some of the leading voices in this field.

“It is certain to generate a high level of exposure for those taking part and we urge people to book now, as spaces in this instance are strictly limited.”
