The Maritime Standard Tanker Conference 2022

The date and location of the seventh annual The Maritime Standard Tanker Conference has now been confirmed. The event will take place on Wednesday 16th November 2022 and will return to the popular and iconic The Atlantis, The Palm, Dubai, where it was held for a number of years pre-pandemic, building up a loyal following.The 2022 Tanker conference, which will have a packed programme of expert presentations and lively panel discussions, will have the theme of “Reshaping the Market – Tanker Shipping Post-pandemic.” This reflects the importance of recognising the significant challenges that still exist as a result of the impact of Covid and the long-lasting effects it will have on so many aspects of the tanker shipping business.

The 2022 Conference will focus on key short- and long-term commercial and technology trends in the crude, products, chemicals, and gas tanker markets. Attendees will get the chance to hear from leading figures in the tanker business presenting their assessments of the key issues. As well as topics relating to tanker ship owning and operating, the event will also look at key support sectors, such as classification, bunker supply, law, ship agency and supplies, ship technology, logistics and terminal handling and storage.

As well as being a place to get information and discuss topical concerns, the conference will once again offer an opportunity for speakers and attendees to network informally at a special evening reception afterwards.

In 2021 the Tanker Conference attracted over 250 delegates, and with pandemic restrictions now easing an even higher figure is forecast for the 2022 event. Following an established and successful formula, The Maritime Standard Tanker Conference is taking place the day after the market leading TMS Awards, to maximise attendance and ensure high profile participants.The sixth The Maritime Standard Tanker Conference was held in November 2021 as an in-person event. The keynote speaker on this occasion was Dr Ibrahim Al Nadhairi of ASYAD Shipping & Drydocks, who highlighted the main strategic challenges confronting the tanker shipping business, including climate change.
