Maritime Week Americas 2017 • Miami

Maritime Week Americas is a hugely popular week-long series of events created to bring together bunker suppliers, traders and buyers – and related maritime professionals – from every part of North, South and Central America and the Caribbean.

Maritime Week Americas 2017 will take place in Miami, at the fabulous Ritz-Carlton, South Beach. The conference will again focus on the most pressing issues in bunkering, from planning for the global sulphur cap in 2020 to examining fuel strategies within the cruise industry, examining the progress of LNG bunkering and looking at changing patterns in fuel quality and specifications. It will also look at bunkering opportunities within the region, highlighting those areas that are now emerging as key refuelling locations of the future.


The week will include:



MWA ConferenceWednesday 24 - Thursday 25 May

  • The two-day conference will combine hard-hitting and absorbing intellectual content covering bunker quality, quantity, regulation and developments in supply, demand and infrastructure, always with the commercial deal in mind.

The Oxford Bunker Course (Advanced Commercial)Monday 22 - Tuesday 23 May
