Maritime events organizer Petrospot Ltd. on Tuesday (21 January) announced the Middle East Bunkering Convention (MEBC) to be held on 5-6 February in Dubai, will offer expert assessment on the impact of IMO 2020 sulphur regulation on both Middle East and global markets.
Conference speakers will discuss initial market reactions to the new regulation in terms of fuel quality, availability and pricing , while also taking a longer, more strategic view on how the industry will adjust to the ‘new order’ across 2020 and in the years ahead.
Questions raised at MEBC include:
This is MEBC’s fifth year and it is the largest yet in terms of delegate attendance. Many companies are repeat participants, but 20 firms are first-time attendees and over 18 countries are represented at the event’s training course and conference.
“Over the past five years, MEBC has grown to be a well-respected and very popular event where delegates know they can tap into the best of industry knowledge and enjoy networking that will really add value in terms of business development and visibility,” said Petrospot Director Lesley Bankes-Hughes.
“In the early weeks of 2020, market volatility over fuel availability and pricing is making it very difficult for industry players to really make sense of how IMO 2020 will actually impact them.
“MEBC will not be making any hasty conclusions or predictions about how the market will play out but it will provide measured and informed strategic insights that will be valuable and enlightening for its delegates.
“The conference will also look beyond the 0.50% global sulphur cap and consider what is a much bigger challenge on the horizon for shipping – how will it manage its decarbonisation? The fact that this is the largest MEBC so far, shows that the industry really wants to engage in the debate about its future.”
