Jannis Kostoulas, President Mare Forum visited to Dubai to review and discuss preparations for the upcoming First Mare Forum, Global Leaders Maritime Summit, Dubai 2014 to be held under the patronage of His Highness Sheikh Hamdan bin Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Crown Prince of Dubai & Chairman of Dubai Executive Council.

During his visit, Kostoulas inspected the venue and discussed topics relating to the logistics and other arrangements with Mare Forums partners in the Summit Drydocks World & Maritime World. He also held discussions with His Excellency Khamis Juma Buamim, Chairman DDWMW in his capacity as the Chairman of Summit regarding the ongoing preparations and the level of regional and international participation at the event. 

“The agenda for the Summit has been designed to attract the top leaders in the maritime industry, and I am overwhelmed by the interest in the Summit to be held in Dubai more so since attendance and participation is largely by invitation. Dubai is a city that holds immense potential and is seen as a critical hub in world trade & commerce and I am extremely happy that the event is drawing such wide-ranging interest. The Summit highlights the stature of Dubai as an important destination for progressive developments that will direct the future of the maritime, oil and gas sectors in the region and attract global attention to the Emirate and its potential as a hub connecting the world and enabling healthy dialogue and debate within the industry,” said Kostoulas

H E Buamim commented, “We are delighted that the first edition of the Summit is drawing such keen interest. The Summit will definitely bridge a gap and help update the industry on significant developments. The industry has welcomed the event and has wholeheartedly embraced the concept and agenda.  Dubai is a leading event destination due to its excellent infrastructure, strategic location and connectivity and high growth potential. We look forward to hosting a stellar event that would lead to many more in the ensuing years.”

It was agreed that Mare Forum Global Leaders Maritime Summit, Dubai will be held annually and will be the first event of the year on the Mare Forum calendar. It is expected the next event in 2015 will be larger than the current edition considering the attention that it is drawing from all quarters of the industry.

The comprehensive agenda drawn up for the Summit will cover wide-ranging subjects including world energy needs, challenges in the geo political aspects, trading patterns and alternative energy sources. It will also highlight a range of topics affecting the overall shipping and maritime industry such as ways of creating a profitable and sustainable industry base.  Key decision-makers will be participating in discussions and will debate the pressing issues to arrive at constructive recommendations.
