Tanker Shipping & Trade Conference

Preparing for the perfect storm

This two-day conference brought professionals from across the global Tanker Shipping and Trade industry to London to discuss the business, operational and technical issues impacting the crude, product and chemical tanker trades.

Why this conference was a must-attend: 

  • Key topics covered.
  • Where the market is heading in 2019. 
  • How leaders' owners will balance regulatory and commercial pressures over the next 12 months. 
  • Keynotes on the latest vetting requirements and practices. 
  • Tanker training in an age of reduced crews and increased automation/digitalisation.
  • What charterers are looking for from owners. What owners can expect from charterers.
  • How far are we away from a fully digitalised tanker industry – and what are the implications.
  • Technology: Balancing compliance, efficiency and economics.  
  • Resolving market confusion over the implications, cost, longevity and legal effectiveness of the ballast water and 2020 fuel choices available. 

Tanker owners are facing a perfect storm of regulation; unprecedented charterer and port state scrutiny and tight markets. Success is all about having the right voyage plan. 

Across two days in November, Riviera's Tanker Shipping & Trade Conference & Awards, addressed these challenges across ten sessions and how to chart the perfect storm ahead. There were plenty of networking opportunities; our dinner and awards providing an excellent social setting for meeting, renewing and making new industry contacts, and our exhibition was the ideal forum to market products and services to the industry's decision makers. 

We also celebrated industry success when we presented our Tanker Shipping & Trade Awards at our Tanker Shipping & Trade Dinner at the end of day one.
