Maritime Week Americas 2023 • New Orleans

Welcome to the Big Easy!

Maritime Week Americas 2023
will take place in the heart of New Orleans, Louisiana, one of the most exhilarating and colourful cities in the Americas. Located right on the Mississippi River, which stretches over 2,300 miles from northern Minnesota to the Gulf of Mexico, New Orleans is world famous for its round-the-clock nightlife, vibrant live-music scene and unique cuisine which reflects its history as a melting pot of French, African and American cultures.

The New Orleans edition of Maritime Week Americas will be focused on traditional fuels as well as new and emerging fuels and technologies, an area that everyone in the shipping and bunkering sectors is now having to embrace as international regulations and consumer demand ratchet up the pressure on shipowners and charterers to reduce emissions and run on ‘greener’ more sustainable fuels. LNG, biofuels and other new fuels will be examined, as will the emerging supply infrastructure across the Americas and take up on the demand side.

MWA23 will begin on Monday 1 May with a one-day training course: The ship.energy Alternative Fuel Course. The Welcome Session of Maritime Week Americas 2023 follows, before the MWA23 Welcome Reception on Monday evening. The MWA23 Conference will continue all day on Tuesday 2 May, culminating in a spectacular carnival procession through the city’s historic French Quarter and a jazz and creole dinner cruise on board the Natchez, one of New Orleans’ famous steamboats. Wednesday 3 May will begin with a specialist shipping and bunkering markets and pricing seminar, followed by a highly focused conference session and a farewell lunch. Wednesday afternoon will see a familiarisation tour of the Port of New Orleans.

MWA23 will embrace everything that gives New Orleans its exceptional reputation, from its live jazz to spicy food, to its festival atmosphere and of course ‘Old Man River. As always, MWA23 will bring together bunkering and shipping people from all over the Americas and the Caribbean to remind everyone why this remains the largest and most popular bunkering conference in the Americas.

Please note: The Natchez jazz and creole dinner cruise and the New Orleans port tour are open to all conference delegates, but places may be limited. In order to secure your place please email events@petrospot.com.
