ICS-ME SILVER JUBILEE CONFERENCE
The Institute of Chartered Shipbrokers Middle East branch is celebrating its Silver Jubilee. As part of the celebration, we are organising a face-to-face conference titled “Towards 2030-Opportunities and Challenges”. The Conference to be held at Sheikh Maktoum Hall, DWTC on the 30th of May 2021, will be widely attended by shipping professionals from the Middle East region. Eminent professionals from different segments of the shipping industry will grace the occasion as speakers and panellists.
The Conference will be followed by the Annual Awards Nite, a glittering event to honour the outstanding performers in the ICS Exams. The keynote speech will be delivered by H.E. Sultan Ahmed bin Sulayem, Group Chairman and CEO of DP World. The conference and the awards event will both present excellent opportunities for networking and sponsorship.
TOPICS COVERED IN THE CONFERENCE
The conference addresses contemporary topics like Green shipping: The Future and The Pandemic and its Aftermath. With the impact of climate change being debated around the world, shipping being the largest mode of transport has a significant role in reducing carbon footprint. The session on "Green Shipping: The Future" focuses on alternate fuels and our readiness to meet the zero-emission targets.
The disruption in trade and commerce due to Covid-19 is unprecedented and still lingering. The session on the pandemic and its aftermath will deliberate on post Covid recovery, lessons learnt from Covid-19 and how the industry grapples with the Covid-19 shock.
