The Gibraltar Port Authority and Petrospot, together with HM Government of Gibraltar, Gibraltar Maritime Administration and other Gibraltar-based stakeholders, have joined forces to create the inaugural Maritime Week Gibraltar, a major new biennial event.
Maritime Week Gibraltar reinforcing its status as the Mediterranean’s premier bunkering hub as well as highlighting the maritime expertise and facilities available locally, including legal and financial services.
A week-long series of Government and Industry events designed to:
- Address the major issues in the international shipping and maritime industries
- Create a global forum for networking and developing important new trading relationships
- Examine global regulation, including IMO 2020
- Showcase Gibraltar’s position as the Mediterranean's premier bunkering hub
- Demonstrate Gibraltar’s maritime legal, financial and insurance expertise
- Provide a unique hands-on opportunity to experience Gibraltar’s maritime infrastructure.
|Llewellyn Bankes-Hughes, Managing Director of UK-based Petrospot commented ‘Gibraltar is already well-known worldwide for its exceptional bunkering facilities which have made it the top refuelling location in the Mediterranean. However, Gibraltar’s thriving maritime sector has so much more to offer the global shipping community, from drydock and agency to legal services, slops and debunkering facilities, hull and tank cleaning, crew change, training and so much more. Maritime Week Gibraltar is designed to show to the world what Gibraltar’s maritime sector is capable of.’
HM Government of Gibraltar’s Minister for the Port, the Hon Gilbert Licudi QC MP, added ‘I hope this event will provide a fantastic opportunity for local organisations to engage with the international maritime community, offering them the perfect platform to show the very best of what Gibraltar has to offer. I am delighted with Petrospot’s involvement in this project which I am sure will be a great success.’
