IBIA Issues Details Regarding Barcelona Convention

Thursday, June 23, 2011

Bunker industry trade association IBIA has announced details of its three-day annual convention taking place in Barcelona November 2-4, 2011.

To be held at the Hotel Rey Juan Carlos I, the convention will see ship-owners and operators, suppliers, traders and brokers, service providers and legislators, debating and discussing the impact on the bunker industry of the 0.1% 2015 Emission Control Areas; the effects of increased demand for MGO on bunker prices and availability in Europe; implications for the bunker industry on a shift to LNG fuelled ships and the outlook for Europe, the Americas and Asia.

The conference will be chaired by Bob Lintott, managing director of ISO Bunkers and IBIA Chairman with over 40 years experience in the marine fuels industry in the UK and USA.

“With 2015 looming, this convention is an opportunity for the industry to discuss how best to deal with the major challenges which lie ahead for all of us," Lintott said. The focus of our convention will be the impact of legislative change and the way forward for the bunker industry. We have lined up a strong programme of speakers including senior representatives from EMSA, ECSA, Chemoil, World Fuel Services, Stena and Carnival to name but a few. We look forward to welcoming the industry to Barcelona.”
