Welcome to Saudi Maritime Congress

Connecting Saudi's shipping and logistic sectors

Saudi Maritime Congress is the most critical conference for Maritime’s Saudi market. Attracting a cluster of influential personalities, the two-day forum brings the Maritime industry together to meet with its most influential leaders for in-depth discussion, guidance and solutions on the regional shipping and logistic sectors. While a dynamic conference agenda takes centre stage, a showcase exhibition provides the perfect catalyst for doing business within Saudi's maritime market.

Saudi Maritime Congress will return in 2019. We look forward to announcing more details soon.

Saudi's maritime market takes the spotlight

At the Heart: The Powerhouse, The Hub

Vision 2030 is a plan to deliver a complete transformation of the Saudi economy, reducing its dependence on oil exports. The growth and diversification will be achieved through a range of measures, including maximising the value capture from its massive energy sector through refining and chemicals manufacture, unlocking the potential of the non‑oil sector in areas such as mining, manufacturing and retail, and positioning the Kingdom as a global logistics hub.

This keynote session will discuss the principal features of the plan and their implications:

• A growing contribution from the private sector to the national economy
• Foreign direct investment opportunities in the Kingdom
• Increasing employment opportunities for Saudi Arabia’s growing young demographic and the goal of
nationalization through Nitaqat
• Further integration of the KSM into the regional and global economies as a hub connecting three continents
