Trevor Pereira, managing director of The Maritime Standard says, "The inaugural event in 2016 was such a success that we have decided to return to the same venue and date, the day after The Maritime Standard Awards, to build on what proved to be a successful formula. We will have some big names from the industry speaking and the high quality audience of decision makers and influencers will make this a Conference that will add real value, in terms of information gathering and networking. The Maritime Standard Tanker Conference is certain to generate a high level of interest so I would urge people to book now, as spaces will be strictly limited."
