    Maritime Standard prepares actions for maritime industry

    The Maritime Standard, the leading events, awards and publishing company, is gearing up for a busy few months with action in all sections. Towards the end of June the first The Maritime Standard UAE Yearbook 2016/17 will be published, with reviews of activity in ports, shipping shipyards, maritime law, classification and other sectors of the maritime business in the UAE, the company said in a press release.

    Trevor Pereira, managing director, “This will be an invaluable publication that will have relevance year round. It will have a circulation of over 5000 and we are taking it to SMM, Hamburg in September. So those covered and supporting advertisers will get international as well as local exposure.”

    Nominations have also recently opened for this year’s The Maritime Standard Awards. Mr. Pereira adds, “If you don’t nominate you don’t stand a chance to win; so get your nominations in by the deadline date at the end of August.” This year there are a total of 21 commercial categories to nominate for, and the winners will be announced at a Gala dinner at Atlantis, The Palm, Dubai, on 24th October. An elite judging panel, chaired by The Maritime Standard Editor, Clive Woodbridge, has been announced and there are very few categories available left for sponsorship.

    The day after The Maritime Standard Awards, the company is hosting a high level tanker conference in Dubai on October 25th. A niche event for the tanker trade, it has been confirmed that KOTC chief executive officer, H.E. Sheikh Talal Al Khaled Al Sabah, will be the keynote speaker. Full details of conference programme and networking opportunities will be up on The Maritime Standard Tanker Conference website shortly.

    Then to wrap up a busy six months for The Maritime Standard, the second annual The Maritime Standard Ship Finance and Trade conference will take place on 14 November at the Sheraton Abu Dhabi.

    The website is up and running and the programme is being developed, with details being revealed over the next few weeks. Chief executive officer of Abu Dhabi Ports, Capt. Mohamed Juma Al Shamisi, is confirmed as key note speaker.

    Trevor Pereira concludes, “We are very excited about the programme we have for the second half of this year. The programme that is put together is really unique and I am sure will help raise the profile of the maritime industries in this part of the world.”

    About The Maritime Standard
    A subsidiary of Flagship Events, The Maritime Standard (TMS) publishes an innovative e-newsletter aimed specifically at the shipping and maritime community. It is delivered fortnightly, on the 1st and 15th of every month, and includes up-to-date news and analysis from the shipping and ports industries and related sectors. Topics that are covered include tanker, container, dry and liquid bulk, ro-ro, and cruise shipping; terminal operations; port development; classification; ship repair and conversion; shipbuilding; ship agency; finance and insurance; maritime law; and transportation & logistics. The Maritime Standard is edited by Clive Woodbridge, a journalist who has been writing about the maritime sector in the Middle East for over 20 years.

    Another division of parent Flagship Events, The Maritime Standard Events focuses specifically on the requirements of the shipping and maritime sector. The company organises a series of industry-leading events across the Middle East, including conferences and exhibitions. It also organises events for third parties in the shipping and ports business.

    The Maritime Standard Awards offers the industry a fabulous showcase, to highlight its many achievements. The first annual event, on November 6th 2014, was hosted by PR guru, Alistair Campbell, and the 2nd on 9th November 2015 by Dutch soccer legend, Ruud Gullitt.
