The International Bunkering Industry Association (IBIA) says it has appointed Stephen Hoare as its new events & membership manager at its Southampton office.  The role involves developing the association’s conferences, seminars and dinner as well as growing its global membership base. 


Welcoming Stephen Hoare’s appointment, IBIA Chief Executive Peter Hall said: 

“Stephen has a strong professional background in developing events and membership. He has great international experience and will help build our portfolio of professional events and membership around the world.

"Our next big conference takes place in Hamburg during the shipping industry’s gathering for Eisbeinessen this November and I greatly look forward to working with Stephen.”  

IBIA adds that Stephen Hoare previously ran his own professional event management company and worked in events related roles for AIG – First Advice, MGM Assurance and HL Partnership.
 He replaces Anna Trant who resigned in June to take up a role as function manager for Paignton Zoo in Devon (UK).


The association currently has over 650 organisations within its membership representing companies across the marine fuel supply chain including bunker suppliers, buyers, traders and other service providers.  It represents the industry in discussions and negotiations with international and national policy makers, legislators and other stakeholders. IBIA also helps develop and endorses industry methods, practices and documentation. It holds regular events including the IBIA Dinner in London during International Petroleum Week, an annual conference and numerous seminars and workshops.
