The decision to move this year’s TMS Tanker Conference to The Atlantis Dubai payed off in a big way, with a more than 90% increase the number of attendees in the ballroom. The one-day event, held on Tuesday 16th October, attracted over 220 delegates, a record-breaking number.
Trevor Pereira, managing director, explains, “We moved the Conference to The Atlantis to ensure not only that we could meet growing demand from the market, but also that the venue was really upmarket as is befitting for such an elite group of tanker industry professionals. The big rise in delegate numbers shows this was the right strategy, but also how topical and relevant the topics on the agenda were in taking the event to a whole new level.”
