    Finalists for the Seatrade Maritime Awards in Dubai announced

    The Seatrade Maritime Awards recognise the very best of maritime success from across the Middle East, Indian Subcontinent and Africa and take place in Dubai on Sunday, 28th October at Atlantis, The Palm, Dubai, attracting more than 700 industry leaders and government officials.

    Celebrating its 15th year, the awards are held under the patronage of H.E. Sultan Ahmed Bin Sulayem, Chairman of Ports, Customs and Free Zone Corporation and Chairman of Dubai Maritime City Authority and as part of UAE Maritime Week.

     

    For 2018, two new awards have been introduced and include Shipyard of the Year and Maritime Services Award under the ‘Industry’ category and the Integration of Women in the Maritime Sector Award under the ‘Personality and Community’ category. A new category, ‘Regional Focus’ recognises the best regional performers through the Africa Maritime Award and the Indian Subcontinent Maritime Award.

    According to a previous winner, H.E. Shaikh Daij Bin Salman Al Khalifa, Chairman, Arab Shipbuilding & Repair Yard (ASRY): “The Seatrade Awards are a benchmark for the industry – there is no question about it. I’ve been attending the event for a number of years and you know when you receive an award from Seatrade, it’s an acknowledgement that you are up there with the best in the industry and that you have done something positive for the industry.”

    The ultimate winners will be revealed on the night, which is also the eve of Seatrade Maritime Middle East, which takes place at Dubai World Trade Centre from 29-31 October 2018.
