July 2017

More than 150 senior executives from different sections of the maritime market, including shipping, ports, finance and banking and law will attend the Maritime Standard Ship Finance and Trade Conference, to be held later this year in Abu Dhabi, UAE.

The event will take place at the Sheraton Abu Dhabi Hotel and Resort on November 8, said the organisers.

A high-level group of expert speakers and panellists is being assembled by The Maritime Standard for the conference. It will include representatives from leading ship owners and managers, port operators, trade organisations, brokers and analysts, law firms and financiers, they stated.

During the summit, the experts will give a series of speeches giving details about recent case studies, illustrating how the financial sector can help release the full potential of regional shipping and ports operators to the benefit of trade and economic growth.

Trevor Pereira, managing director of The Maritime Standard, said: “This the third time we are returning to Abu Dhabi to hold this event, and this reflects not just the success of the first two, but the growing importance of the emirate as a regional trade, shipping and finance hub.”

“We will have some important names from the industry speaking and a high quality audience of decision makers,” he said.

“These are still difficult times for the industry, but we aim to make sure this event will add real value and assist companies in charting a course towards success when the recovery gathers momentum,” he added.

Captain Mohamed Juma Al Shamisi, chief executive of Abu Dhabi Ports, said: “We are delighted to be hosting the event, an important event for Abu Dhabi’s Maritime sector as well as the UAE.”

“Abu Dhabi is fast becoming a regional hub for both finance and trade so it makes perfect sense to hold this event here, to underline the emirate›s growth in trade and transport both regionally and globally,” he added.
