The Maritime Standard has launched its special 10th anniversary TMS Awards evening, with details of both the date and location recently being confirmed. It was revealed during the TMS Golf Classic, which took place on March 16th at the Trump International Golf Club in Dubai, that TMS Awards 2023 will take place on Tuesday 7th November at Atlantis, the Palm, Dubai, in its iconic ballroom, with a very special evening planned to mark the significant milestone.
This follows on from the highly successful Awards and gala dinner that took place in November 2022, which consolidated its position as the largest and most prestigious event of its type. Also held at the Atlantis, the 9th edition of the TMS Awards attracted over 950 high level executives from across the region, and beyond. An even higher attendance, possibly in excess of 1000, is expected for the 2023 event, including major delegations from Egypt, Saudi Arabia, Iraq, Jordan and India.
Trevor Pereira, Managing Director of TMS, says, “Last year was notable not just for the quality of the executives in the ballroom, but that fact that all the major companies in shipping and maritime supported the event by attending. We are now clearly positioned as the leading Awards and Gala Dinner for shipping and maritime, not just regionally but globally as well, and we look forward to marking our tenth anniversary with our best, and biggest event yet.”
An expert panel of judges is being assembled to judge the 21 different categories which are up for grabs. Additionally, there will be an award for Maritime Law Firm of the Year, to reflect the region’s increasingly important role in this sector. This Award will have its own dedicated judging panel drawn from within the trade itself.
Trevor adds, “It is fantastic that we have reached our 10th anniversary and I have been pleased to be able to have served the industry by taking the event from strength to strength. My editor Clive Woodbridge and myself have been covering developments in the region for over 25 years now and we have been able to put all that expertise into an event that meets what the industry and the region requires.”
It was further confirmed during the TMS Golf Classic that TMS Tanker Conference will take place on November 8th, the day after the Awards, also at the Atlantis, The Palm, Dubai. Holding the conference in the same location, and the following day, strengthens the synergies between the two events, which are both now well established.
