Ten years on, TMS Awards continue to excel

Held annually in Dubai, The Maritime Standard Awards has consolidated its position as the premier event of its type in the region, setting high standards for production quality and winning the overwhelming respect of the industry for celebrating and recognising only the best of the best in the shipping, ports and related sectors across the Middle East and the Indian Subcontinent. In 2023 the Awards celebrate their 10th anniversary, a remarkable milestone demonstrating their enduring quality and appeal. Last year the Awards were held in person at the Atlantis, The Palm Dubai in the venue’s iconic Ballroom. With over 950 guests, the Awards once again demonstrated their enduring popularity and unique status within the business, as well as the continued confidence of the industry in TMS’s ability to organise an event of this scale and maintain high production standards. Overall, 20 general awards were presented on the night, in line with the recommendations of an elite, independent judging panel. In addition, a number of special individual awards were presented by TMS in recognition of the contributions made by selected key industry executives and organisations.
