Seatrade Offshore Marine & Workboats; Seatrade Shiptech and Seatrade Maritime Awards Middle East, Indian Subcontinent & Africa have recently been announced as three major events to be held during UAE Maritime Week 2019.
The maritime-led week of activities also includes several other associated shipping & maritime events and the popular Dubai Maritime Agenda – a Dubai Maritime Cluster Office biennial event. UAE Maritime Week is held under the patronage of His Highness Sheikh Hamdan bin Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Crown Prince of Dubai and Chairman of the Executive Council.
Many of the week’s activities will be centred around the Madinat Jumeirah, starting with the Dubai Maritime Agenda on 22nd September and the Seatrade Maritime Awards that evening.
Seatrade Offshore Marine & Workboats Middle East will then take place from 23-24 September, co-locating with Seatrade Shiptech Middle East – also held at the Madinat Jumeirah.
“The Seatrade brand has long supported the maritime industry in the region and we are delighted to be working again with Dubai Maritime City Authority and Dubai Maritime Cluster Office to bring several world-class events to this critical week,” said Chris Morley, event director for Seatrade Maritime, Informa Markets.
Seatrade Offshore Marine & Workboats Middle East centres around a world-class exhibition alongside a comprehensive conference programme with a list of internationally influential speakers.
The UAE Maritime Week, organised by Dubai Maritime City Authority (DMCA), recently announced that it will be run annually.
“The decision to organise the UAE Maritime Week every year instead of every two years represents an important step towards promoting Dubai and the UAE’s successful maritime experience on the global stage,” said Amer Ali, executive director of DMCA.
“We look forward to hosting the week this September in a strong push towards unifying international efforts for the maritime industry’s advancement," he said. "We will base our efforts on clear mechanisms to stimulate maritime innovation, enhance human investment, develop infrastructure, strengthen legislative and legal systems, and keep up with the rapid technological developments in the 21st century.”
