The Global Event Connecting You to Saudi Arabia’s Shipping and Logistics Sectors

Saudi Maritime Congress provides an opportunity to meet and do business with an international audience of maritime and shipping industry professionals, key decision-makers and government entities.

Whether you are an exhibitor or a visitor, the two-day event will help you connect with many businesses and learn about the key investment opportunities in the Kingdom.

Event Update | The Third Saudi Maritime Congress will now take place in 2021.

Since announcing the first postponement of the Third Saudi Maritime Congress earlier this year, we have been liaising with our Founding Strategic Partners MAWANI and Bahri, as well as monitoring official guidance on border controls, international flights as well as events and exhibitions within the Kingdom. 

We now believe that September 2020 is not the correct time for us to deliver the exceptional maritime event the industry deserves. Therefore, it is with regret that we announce Saudi Maritime Congress will be postponed to the first half of 2021 with the exact dates to be announced soon.

We look forward to welcoming you to an exceptional event in 2021!

Saudi Maritime Congress is strategically important and remains an interactive platform for exchanging information, transferring experiences and exploring investment opportunities available to develop the maritime sector with the participation of experts, pioneers and decision-makers. The Kingdom has provided a pioneering model in the development of the maritime sector, accompanied with unlimited support and unprecedented attention of our wise leadership, which translates to a quality-focused shift in facilities, operational and logistical mechanisms, to position Saudi ports among the ranks of the most important regional ports and an ideal destination for major global navigation lines.
