About

The Maritime Standard Awards recognise and celebrate success in the shipping, ports and related sectors across the Middle East and the Indian Subcontinent. The sixth edition of TMS Awards will take place on Monday, 21st October 2019 at Atlantis, the Palm, Dubai.

These are the only Awards of their kind that represent all sectors within the maritime and shipping industries, a factor that has been evident since their inception. They are in particular the only Awards where all the major shipowners and operators from across the region are represented, something that TMS is extremely proud of.

The Awards are now firmly positioned as one of the world’s leading shipping and maritime Awards gala dinners and are the premier event of their kind in the region. All of the five events to date have been held under the patronage of His Highness Sheikh Ahmed bin Saeed Al Maktoum, and have each attracted close to 700 of the region’s elite shipping and maritime professionals, as well as a number of leading figures from overseas. These guests have come from a variety of industry segments, ranging from ports and terminal operators to ship owners and managers. Top executives from the worlds of maritime law and finance, classification, ship building and repair and maritime education and training are also in attendance, creating unrivalled networking opportunities.

All of the events have had distinguished master of ceremonies. Past MCs have included Alastair Campbell, Ruud Gullit, Jim Clancy, Lara Dutta and Tim Wilcox. The 2019 event will be hosted by a personality of equivalent caliber.

The 2018 TMS Awards saw 20 general awards presented, in line with the recommendations of an elite, independent judging panel, as well as a number for special individual awards recognising the contributions made by high profile industry leaders and innovators. The Awards have set a benchmark within the industry and have become an eagerly anticipated meeting place for top executives from across the market, as well as an opportunity to reward and recognise achievement at the highest level.”
