More than 700 senior executives and decision-makers from around the world will attend the Maritime Standard Awards (TMS Awards) 2018 taking place at the Atlantis, The Palm, in Dubai, UAE on October 15.
The glamorous black-tie event recognises and rewards achievement within the maritime sector, at an individual and corporate level.
Around 27 Awards will be presented on the night. Most will be selected by an elite panel of judges, handpicked for their knowledge and experience, while others will be chosen by The Maritime Standard team to mark exceptional achievements.
Trevor Pereira, managing director, Maritime Standards, said: “The Awards are now recognised as being the leading maritime awards event in the region, and one of the top worldwide. The partnership we have built with The Atlantis is a significant part of the success story, ensuring that the setting is suitably prestigious and high quality, and we are delighted to be able to confirm that we will be returning here again this year. But while we have a tried and tested operation, we are not complacent, and we will be going all out to make sure that the TMS Awards 2018 are bigger and better than ever before.”
Winning an award gives companies and individuals a chance to promote their achievements on an international stage.
Ali Shehab, deputy chief executive, Kuwait Oil Tanker Company, which was named Tanker Operator of the Year, said: “To win an Award at such a prestigious event was truly an honour, and it validated the progress we have made, and continue to make as a company in a very competitive business. It was an extremely professional and well-run event, and congratulations are due to The Maritime Standard for everything they have achieved."
