Dubai World Trade Centre will host the inaugural annual Maritime Academic Conference and Exposition encouraging a greater presence of the international maritime sector within the Middle East. The aim of this event is to enhance academic nautical activities in the UAE as part of an underlying need for trained managerial staff in the maritime industry. According to the latest reports, the International Maritime Organisation (IMO) has called for an urgent 70% increase in the international maritime fleet to fill the shortfall of mercantile transportation around the world.
The conference and expo will help foster strong relationships between the International Maritime Organisation, governmental maritime institutions, maritime companies as well as ship owners and operators that offer educational and training services to the nautical sector, in order to promote educational, academic and training programmes.
