3. JEBEL ALI PORT TOUR
Tuesday 8 March - The bus will be leaving the hotel at 2pm sharp
All registered training course and MEBC Conference delegates are invited to join an exclusive tour of Jebel Ali, DP World’s flagship port, which is not only one of the world's top ten but also the biggest and by far the busiest port in the Middle East.
Jebel Ali plays a vital role in the UAE economy and is a premier gateway for over 80 weekly shipping services, connecting more than 140 ports worldwide. Its container handling capacity has grown to 19.3 million TEU (twenty-foot equivalent units), stretching over three container terminals that together boast 28 berths and 152 cranes. Once its fourth container terminal is completed, total capacity will rise to 22.4 million TEU.
This fascinating guided tour will bring you up close to some of the vast container ships that use the port and give you an idea of the scale of the port infrastructure and operations, as well as sight of some of the goods, vehicles, military equipment and other supplies that pass through this crucial gateway every day.
The bus will depart the Hilton Hotel at 2pm and return for 4:30pm. Please note places will be allocated on a first come first served basis.
Table Top Exhibit • Wednesday 9 - Thursday 10 March
The Middle East Bunkering Convention exhibition offers you all the benefits of a networking environment in which you can consolidate existing, and develop new, business relationships. Use this opportunity to acquire new leads and build your brand by booking a table top exhibition space.

'Great to see old and new friends and to witness how the industry is trying to come closer to each other ahead of a challenging time for the shipping industry.'

Covid-19 – Cancellation Policy 2022
We are continuously monitoring the Covid-19 situation in Dubai and across the world.
If you have already registered and paid to attend the Middle East Bunkering Convention but are subsequently informed by the authorities in your country of residence that you are not permitted to travel to the UAE at the time of the event, you will be given the opportunity to transfer your registration to the next Middle East Bunkering Convention in 2023. Should you find that you are unable to attend on the new dates for any reason – and are unable to transfer the registration to a colleague – Petrospot will refund your registration fees in full.
We are working closely with our hotel and venue partners to ensure that our clients are not exposed to any financial risk should they be obliged to cancel. However, any hotel cancelations will be at the discretion of the hotel, rather than Petrospot.
Petrospot reserves the right to require proof of vaccination status and/or a recent negative Covid-19 test and to request a temperature test on arrival at the event, in line with any local official guidelines. We will also follow all local Government guidelines with regards to social distancing, participant numbers and sanitisation standards.
