About

A glittering, high quality occasion, with attendees including key decision makers from across the Middle East and the Indian Subcontinent, The Maritime Standard Awards recognise the achievements of the industry’s most outstanding performers and celebrate and reward their successes. Despite being launched only four years ago, The Maritime Standard (TMS) Awards has earned the right to be referred to as the region’s premiere shipping and maritime awards event. All of the four events that have taken place to date have be graced with the patronage of His Highness Sheikh Ahmed bin Saeed Al Maktoum, underlining the esteem in which they are held, and have been staged at the prestigious Atlantis Ballroom, on The Palm, Dubai.

High profile and well known international personalities have taken centre stage at the TMS Awards and have performed the master of ceremonies role. The first three Awards were compered by PR guru, journalist and writer Alastair Campbell (2014), Dutch soccer legend, Ruud Gullit, (2015), and former CNN news anchor, Jim Clancy (2016). For the 2017 Awards the well-known Bollywood actress and model, Lara Dutta, hosted the show and was universally acclaimed as a huge success.

Each of the TMS Awards evenings has attracted over 600 of the region’s elite decision makers, including chairmen, chief executives and directors from many leading shipping companies, ports, terminal operators and maritime companies and organisations. Attendees have come not just from across the Middle East and Subcontinent, but globally also.

The 2017 Awards were notable for many well-deserves presentations. In addition to the 23 awards determined by the elite judging panel, there were 8 special awards presented by the TMS team for particularly impressive individual achievements. Preparations for the 5th Annual Maritime Standard Awards are getting underway and will take place in Dubai during October 2018.
