From the recent upheaval of IMO 2020, the present day disruptions of COVID-19, to a future demanding a complete rethink on marine energy; the shipping and bunker industries find themselves at arguably the most challenging point in their history.
In response to this most critical of times, International Bunker Industry Association (IBIA) has announced that for 2020 its Annual Convention will take a completely new, innovative, and entirely online format.
To be held between 3 to 5 November, the ‘IBIA Annual Convention 2020 – Going Global’ event will include a virtual exhibition hall, access to extensive in-depth on-demand content, and a series of both regional and globally-focused live panel discussions with audience participation.
The event will be officially opened by Kitack Lim, Secretary-General at the International Maritime Organisation (IMO), who will deliver the keynote speech.
Unni Einemo, Director at IBIA and IMO Representative, and Henrik Zederkof, Chairman of IBIA, will both be presenting the welcome address.
Delegates interested in attending the event are welcomed to register here.
