pr17 3 - All-star lineup for The Maritime Standard Ship Finance and Trade Conference

Interest is building in the third annual The Maritime Standard Ship Finance and Trade Conference, which takes place on November 8th at the Sheraton Abu Dhabi Hotel and Resort. The theme of this year’s one-day event is ‘Building strong partnerships to generate investment-led growth’ and will highlight key issues facing the shipping, ports, banking and finance sectors as they seek to capitalise on emerging opportunities and avoid potential pitfalls.

A really high quality line of speakers is already confirmed. Captain Mohamed Al Shamisi, chief executive of Abu Dhabi Ports (ADP), will give one of the keynote speeches, highlighting the many initiatives that have been led by the organisation with the aim of diversifying the emirate’s economy and creating a trade hub. The second keynote speech will come from H.E. Dr. Abdullah Salem Alkatheeri, director general of the Federal Transport Authority-Land and Maritime (FTA), which sets the regulatory framework for the sector in the UAE.

Other confirmed speakers from the world of shipping and ports include Khamis Juma Buamim, managing director and group chief executive, Gulf Navigation Holding PJSC; Ali Shehab, deputy chief executive, KOTC; and Chris Peters, chief executive of Eships. They will be joined by speakers who are experts in finance, law, insurance and related sectors, such as Marcus Machin, director, Tufton Oceanic; Jacob Berman, managing director, Infrastructure and Transportation, Standard Chartered; Andrew Simmons, chief executive, GMTC LLC; Bora Bariman, National Bank of Fujairah; Amir Mosadeghi, chief executive, Islamic P&I Club; and Andrew Baird, partner, Watson, Farley & Williams. More speakers are likely to be added over the next few weeks.

Trevor Pereira, managing director, The Maritime Standard, says, “The first two Ship Finance and Trade conferences, held in 2015 and 2016, were both very successful, bringing together leading figures from the fields of shipping, ports, banking, finance, trade and law to discuss and debate the key issues. We have put together an even higher quality panel of speakers for this year, and then event is as a result certainly not one to be missed.” For more information and how to register go to
