Registration opens for Seatrade Maritime Logistics Middle East

Seatrade Networking at Seatrade Maritime Logistics Middle East
The in-person business and networking event at the heart of UAE Maritime Week will serve as the industry’s think-tank for innovative ideas and solutions.

Held under the patronage of the UAE Ministry of Energy and Infrastructure, Seatrade Maritime Logistics Middle East (SMLME), the leading maritime and logistics event in the region, announced the opening of registration for its 2023 edition. Taking place on 16-18 May 2023 at the Dubai World Trade Centre, this year's conference and exhibition aims to bring together industry leaders, experts, and decision-makers from across the region to share ideas aimed at driving innovation and progress in the sector.

Prompted by recent fluctuations in the global supply chain due to unprecedented challenges, the event has expanded its scope to include maritime logistics as part of its focus, thus serving as a bridge between the two vital industries dedicated to maintaining the flow of trade around the world.

Unparalleled opportunities for growth

The conference and exhibition provide a unique opportunity for attendees to learn about the latest industry trends and developments, gain insights from leading experts in the field, network with peers, and strike valuable business deals. A comprehensive program of keynote speeches, panel discussions, and technical sessions will cover a wide range of topics relevant to the maritime and logistics sectors, and throw light on opportunities for innovation and growth.

H.E. Eng. Hessa Al Malek, Advisor to the Minister for Maritime Transport Affairs, MOEI UAE said: "Innovation and constant enhancement of capabilities is a key driving factor for the development and continued success of the UAE's maritime and logistics sectors. The UAE is home to 20 ports, each of them proudly relying on advanced solutions to upscale their cost and operational efficiency. Additionally, we have over 27,000 maritime companies in the country, working along the lines of our national policy to continually improve their performance through technology and best practices. SMLME will play a vital role in the further development of these organisations and ports as it serves as a reservoir of ideas for the industry, and provides an integrated knowledge base for industry leaders, experts, and decision-makers."

Bringing together thought leaders

Speaking on the added advantages offered by Seatrade Maritime Logistics Middle East, Chris Morley, Group Director, Seatrade Maritime emphasised: "We truly realise the value of bringing together industry thought leaders, experts, and decision-makers from across the region to discuss important topics, and share vital insights in order to ensure resilience, and catalyse the growth of the sector. Registration is open for our flagship Middle East event, and we are very optimistic regarding the success of the 2023 edition of the event, particularly because of our added focus on the logistics sector and countless examples of feedback from customers who are keen to re-connect and grow business. As always, our purpose will be to serve as a think-tank, generating new ideas and practical solutions for some of the most pressing concerns facing the industry.”
