Top regional and international shipping and maritime industry experts and leaders will network, discuss business opportunities and build relationships, at the ‘UAE Maritime Week 2018’ to be held in Dubai.

It is a first-of-its-kind event on the regional map that is being held under the patronage of HH Sheikh Hamdan bin Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Crown Prince of Dubai and Chairman of the Executive Council, said a statement by the Dubai Maritime City Authority (DMCA), the organisers of the event.

Taking place from October 28 to November 1, it is expected to attract international attention as it serves as a strategic platform for international maritime industry leaders to explore the future of the maritime industry, based on solid foundations of innovation, knowledge and smart transformation, it said.

The week-long event will feature maritime activities aimed at promoting international best practices, exchange of knowledge and the latest maritime and technological innovations that can help contribute in the development of a competitive, inclusive and attractive maritime community positioning Dubai and the UAE across the world’s leading maritime capitals.

Amer Ali, executive director of DMCA, said: “The event will once again bring together international maritime industry leaders to explore the reality and future of the maritime sector, which is a vital contributor in the global economy.”

“It will further bolster Dubai and the UAE’s move to consolidate its position as a major gateway to international trade, with the continued support of our leadership. We look forward to the discussions on the agenda with a view to promote constructive dialogue, facilitate knowledge transfer channels, share the most successful experiences and best practices with decision makers and leaders of the maritime industry in the world, and explore the prospects in light of the rapid changes taking place in the global maritime industry,” he added.

‘UAE Maritime Week 2018’ provides an ideal opportunity for international maritime industry leaders to learn about the latest innovations in shipping and cargo handling technologies, which are of great interest in the facilitation, promotion and support for international maritime activity.

The event will also serve as a strategic platform to discuss issues covering the future of alternative marine fuels for ships and review prospects for the development of regulatory and legislative frameworks needed to support the efforts to provide alternative fuel in support of the sustainable development process.
