Hosted by HM Government of Gibraltar, the Gibraltar Port Authority, the Gibraltar Maritime Administration, and the University of Gibraltar Maritime Academy – and created and organised by Petrospot – this third edition of the biennial Maritime Week Gibraltar will once again provide a global showcase for one of the most efficient, secure, and professionally managed ports in the world.
Strategically located at the crossroads of the Mediterranean and Atlantic and of Europe and Africa, Gibraltar is the most important bunkering hub in the Mediterranean but also provides a range of key maritime services, from ship repair and agency to hull cleaning and surveying, from major cruise destination to superyacht haven, from thriving financial and legal centre to preferred crew change location. Through a range of events, including a Flagship Conference, highly focused breakout sessions, bunker and LNG training courses, technical site visits, an exhibition and a wide range of fabulous networking opportunities, Maritime Week Gibraltar will demonstrate why Gibraltar has come to be recognised as a rock-solid partner for global shipping.
The week starts on Monday 26 June with a full day training course, An Introduction to Shipping & Bunkering; and a half day Ship & Yacht Registry course. The evening will see an Opening Reception hosted by HM Government of Gibraltar.
The MWG23 Flagship Conference on Tuesday 27 June will highlight key international port, shipping and bunkering issues while shining a spotlight on the many different maritime services available in Gibraltar. Leading international and local speakers will cover a range of key subjects during the conference based on activities carried out in Gibraltar, including bunkering, LNG bunkering, underwater hull cleaning, crew change and agency, superyacht management, ship and yacht registry, towage and salvage, ship repair and retrofitting, medical services, legal, financial and insurance services.
Tuesday evening will be rounded off with a stunning deck-top reception on the Sunborn.
Some of the conference presentations will serve as short introductions to more in-depth breakout sessions that will take place on Wednesday 28 and Thursday 29 June, finishing with a reception Thursday evening.
Among the unique site visits will be tours and reception onboard a Royal Navy vessel, a visit to the Port of Gibraltar’s vessel traffic services (VTS) control centre and on board to bunker barges and other vessels in port.
With five fabulous evening receptions taking place during the week, Maritime Week Gibraltar is again guaranteed to succeed in its primary aim of encouraging networking, contact making and, ultimately, securing more business for everyone.
