DUBAI, 8th February 2023 (WAM) -- Seatrade Maritime held a networking reception at Sofitel Jumeirah Beach, ahead of the 2023 Seatrade Maritime Logistics Middle East, the flagship event of the UAE Maritime Week.
Attended by over 150 industry players, the networking reception brought together some leading maritime and logistics professionals, thought leaders, and decision-makers, on a common platform to foster connections, spark insightful discussions, share knowledge, and collaborate on new initiatives to drive the progress of the industry.
In addition to networking, the reception provided attendees with an ideal opportunity to interact and share vital information on how the maritime and logistics sectors have grown over the years to play a pivotal role in driving regional and global economic growth.
The MoU was signed between Informa Markets and YoungShip UAE to promote the 20 Under 40 initiative, and highlight the opportunities provided by YoungShip UAE to aspiring maritime professionals in the region. As a result of the partnership, YoungShip UAE will be recognised as the “Supporting Organisation” for Seatrade Maritime Logistics Middle East, in addition to both parties combining their forces to encourage the next generation of maritime leaders to take part in the industry, contribute to its security, sustainability, and growth.
Rami Al Breiki, Chairman of YoungShip UAE, commented, "We are looking forward to the support of Informa Markets to enhance the progress of the industry by recognising skilled and qualified maritime professionals. The 20 Under 40 initiative is a significant step towards achieving this goal, and we find it very important for us to support such efforts. By highlighting the achievements and experiences of young industry professionals, we will be able to educate the youth about the lucrative and fulfilling opportunities that lie in the sector for successful careers, and attract a higher volume of applicants willing to contribute to the industry’s growth.”
Speaking on the significance of the reception and the two signings, Chris Morley, Group Director, Seatrade Maritime, stated, “The networking reception was a step forward in our aim to organise an impactful event, favourable to industry growth and expansion. Through this reception, we were able to provide industry stakeholders with a valuable opportunity to come together and strengthen their relations with one another. Therefore, we can say with conviction that we were able to achieve what we aimed for through this reception, and are looking forward to a successful event with an ocean of attendees.”
“We are also proud to announce our partnerships with Emirates Shipping Association and YoungShip UAE. Both these organisations have spent several years in the UAE, consistently contributing to the sustenance and progress of the regional maritime sector. We believe that it is the right step forward to build on the individual capabilities of the two entities, and collectively catalyse the growth of the regional maritime sector,” Morley added.
