Welcome to Seatrade Maritime Middle East 2018

“In the two years since our last event, global trade movement has faced increasingly challenging economic pressures; the international maritime industry continues to be impacted by future oil price forecasts and the effect of the Chinese trade slowdown has all impacted the industry – so to be able to announce such a significant growth in attendance is reflective of how much the industry is joining hands to overcome challenges and support each other.”
Emma Howell, Group Marketing Manager, Seatrade
