Furthering its dedication to contributing to the development of the maritime sector, Bahri, a global leader in logistics and transportation, reiterated its support to Saudi Maritime Congress. In its potential as Founding Strategic Partner of the event, the company has also extended an official invitation to its international network of partners and clients as well as the wider global maritime community to take part in the Kingdom’s largest and most vital industry event, taking place from 22 and 23 March 2020 in Dammam.
According to Abdullah Aldubaikhi, Chief Executive Officer, Bahri: “Saudi Maritime Congress comes at a time when the industry is at a crossroads, faced by regional and international geopolitical developments as well as technology and regulatory disruptions. The Congress provides us a unique chance to talk about contemporary and emerging trends in the logistics and transportation sector and create a roadmap for us stakeholders to play a vital role in shaping its future. At Bahri, we are confident that this will also provide us an unparalleled platform to further our collective contribution towards achieving the goals set out in Saudi Vision 2030 and are proud to underline our continuing support to this essential event through encouraging our partners and clients to join and drive the conversation forward.”
As Founding Strategic Partner of the event alongside the Saudi Ports Authority (MAWANI), Bahri will be participating in both the conference and the exhibition being held as part of Saudi Maritime Congress in order to grant the perfect platform to stimulate private sector investment in the maritime industry and further give a boost to Saudi Arabia’s predominant efforts in boosting the role of the shipping sector in its economic transformation.
Keynote Session: Vision2030 – an update on progress and opportunity for growth
Abdullah Aldubaikhi, Chief Executive Officer at Bahri, will take part in the Keynote session at Saudi Maritime Congress. In this headline session, leaders of the organisations driving maritime business and policy within the Kingdom will talk about the opportunities for domestic and global maritime and logistics companies and the progress of key Vision 2030 objectives.
Session: The fuel revolution to 2050
Abdulaziz Sabri, President of Bahri Ship Management, joins an essential session reflecting on lessons learned since the implementation of the IMO 2020 Sulphur cap. The panellists will explore what alternatives – inclusive of battery power – will be available in the near future. A key discussion factor will consider whether ship owners and fuel suppliers are entirely prepared for a changing energy landscape.
Bahri will be exhibiting at Booth C10 at Saudi Maritime Congress and join a powerful group of maritime technology suppliers and marine service providers within the exhibition.
Chris Morley, Event Director, Seatrade Maritime, reiterated the importance of Saudi Maritime Congress and added: “We have designed the conference programme and the exhibition floor of SMC 2020 to bring together shipowners, ship operators, shipyards, manufacturers and more in a stimulating blend to help grow networks, solidify maturing business deals and nurture new opportunities. We have been lucky enough to work intently with key influencers such as our Founding Strategic Partners, Bahri and MAWANI, to make sure the event continues to evolve and support the goals of the companies playing a vital role in one of the most prosperous economic developments in recent maritime history.”
The Saudi Maritime Congress is the largest and most important event in the Kingdom for international and local maritime professionals designed to provide a platform for meeting, networking and discovering new business opportunities in Saudi Arabia. For the first time, the conference will be free to attend, and advance registration is recommended.
