Future-proofed tanker operations

Riviera’s two-day Tanker Shipping & Trade Conference returns Tuesday 2 November - Wednesday 3 November to London as a live event.

Professionals from across the global Tanker Shipping and Trade industry will convene in London to discuss the business, operational and technical issues impacting the crude, product and chemical tanker trades.

Why this conference was a must-attend:


Key topics covered:

  • Where the market is heading in 2022.
  • How leading owners will balance regulatory and commercial pressures over the next 12 months.
  • Keynotes on the latest vetting requirements and practices.
  • Training in an age of reduced crews and increased automation/digitalisation.
  • What charterers are looking for from owners. What owners can expect from charterers.
  • A fully digitalised tanker industry – and what are the implications.
  • A fully decarbonised tanker industry – what are the implications.
  • Technology: Balancing compliance, efficiency and economics.

There are plenty of networking opportunities including meeting, renewing and making new industry contacts. Our exhibition is the ideal forum to market products and services to the industry’s decision makers.


At our dinner and awards we take stock and recognise the sector’s accomplishments against the backdrop of one of the most challenging periods for the maritime industry.


Here’s why your colleagues in industry regard Riviera’s two-day Tanker Shipping & Trade Conference, Awards & Exhibition is a must attend.
