The 20th edition of the Singapore International Bunkering Conference and Exhibition, fondly known as SIBCON by the bunkering industry, is scheduled to be held at Resorts World Sentosa, Singapore on 2 to 5 October, 2018.
More than 1,600 participants including suppliers, traders, ship owners and operators from over 70 countries are expected to convene at SIBCON 2018.
At the event, delegates will be able to hear from key decision makers from the shipping and marine fuels community as they outline market potential, growth segments, and strategies to operate in the current environment.
“A leading event for the marine fuels industry, SIBCON has continued to enable robust discussion for the industry to be future ready, forward thinking and sustainable,” says Alan Lim, Chairman, SIBCON Steering Committee 2018, MPA.
“This year will be no different.
“As we prepare the industry for upcoming challenges such as sulphur compliance and digitalisation, we continue to place great emphasis on our basics for quality and quantity assurance.
“This year’s programme will help you to form opinions, take strategic decisions and address current and future challenges.
“Addressing the road to 2020 and beyond, SIBCON 2018 will bring to the discussion table high level tactics from various players across the bunkering supply chain and also deep dive into technical and operational matters.
“I look forward to seeing you at SIBCON 2018.”
