The Maritime Standard Tanker Conference 2023

The event will take place on Wednesday 8th November 2023 and will be staged at the iconic The Atlantis, The Palm, Dubai, which has proved to be a popular and successful home for this event.

The 2023 TMS Tanker Conference, which will feature a packed programme of expert presentations and lively panel discussions, will have the theme of “Net zero – tanker shipping setting the global decarbonisation agenda’, underlining the importance of ongoing efforts to reduce the environmental impact of the shipping industry in general, and the tanker shipping sector in particular. The conference will assess the challenges and opportunities presented by tough new environmental regulations and look at efforts to develop alternative fuels, including LNG, methanol, ammonia and wind power.

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

As well as providing a chance to get invaluable 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.
