Every presentation had a different theme and something we could learn from. The type of speakers are unique and the subjects The Maritime Standard have selected are all very interesting.
Chris PetersChris PetersCEO
Emirates Ship Investment Company LLC
It’s a good place to network and meet people, and on top of that the quality of speakers was good as usual.
Richard BriggsRichard BriggsVice Chairman
The Conference has been been fantastic and it’s always a pleasure to be back here in Abu Dhabi. A feature for me this year was the slightly growing optimism in the tanker market
Andrew SimmonsAndrew SimmonsCEO
Global Marine Transport Capital LLC
The Ship Finance and Trade Conference is always very enjoyable and interesting. Being a finance guy, it’s great to sit and listen to presentations about ports and other kinds of infrastructure projects.

Abu Dhabi National Insurance Company
This has been a valuable opportunity to put stakeholders from the maritime and insurance industries together to discuss and identify the common issues and challenges that they are facing and try to put together a framework for better collaboration.
Capt. Zarir IraniCapt. Zarir IraniMD, Constellation Marine Services and President
International Institute of Marine Surveying (IIMS)
It has really been very informative and well attended. We heard a lot of bold presentations about where the money is going to come from and what the colour of the money is going to be. It was a clear statement made by a lot of speakers that the next wave finance is going to be green.
Christopher James ThomasChristopher James ThomasCFO
ADNOC Logistics & Services
It has been hugely beneficial to be here, there is a lack of understanding amongst many of the banks, many of which might be sitting on the sidelines. Hopefully this conference will give them a push to take a closer look at the industry.

For me as a legal professional in the shipping market the Conference allows me to hear from the horse’s mouth, as it were. You find ship owners and real practitioners of the craft of ship finance speaking to us about their problems and potentially coming to a solution. I don’t think an event can get any more valuable than that.
Bobby VargheseBobby VargheseVice President- Financial Strategy,
Abu Dhabi Ports
For me the discussion on climate change was a really important topic. Most of the participants were concerned about it and while IMO 2020 is a challenge there are opportunities as well, the conference is a great opportunity to meet people and understand the trends in the industry. I really love being here.
George GiannakisGeorge GiannakisMD
This is the first time I have attended the Conference and it has been great. A lot of the important players in the local market, as well as internationally, have taken the trouble to come over, so there are plenty of opportunities for networking as well a chance to hear interesting topics.

Shipping needs money and money needs to find a new asset class all the time. So, what The Maritime Standard does very well is bring the right people from banking and shipping together.
Capt. S. R. PatnaikCapt. S. R. PatnaikCEO,
International Shipping & Logistics
I found it to be a very good conference, well organised, with excellent speakers and a variety of topics. I would absolutely recommend it to anyone in the business.
Tien TaiTien TaiPartner
I really enjoyed the morning session. A wide range of topics were discussed and quite pertinent issues affecting the shipping industry were all raised.
