UAE Maritime Week

Once again, we’re delighted to be organising the umbrella activities of UAE Maritime Week in conjunction with, and under the patronage of, the Ministry of Energy & Infrastructure.

We will be working hard to demonstrate the fantastic progress being made by the UAE as it continues to grow as a significant global maritime centre.

Introducing Logistics

For the first time, Seatrade Maritime brings a sharper and more purposeful focus on integrated logistics.

Dedicated conference sessions, exhibitors and attendees will ensure the event reflects the pace of change in the maritime sector which becomes more interwoven in supply chain services by the day.


Community & Connection

We’re working with customers to bring social activities, celebrations and experiences to the event to ensure visitors to SMLME have a truly expansive and valuable week in the UAE.

Featuring the return of the Seatrade Maritime Golf Day, an exclusive gala dinner experience, tours of local maritime facilities and networking opportunities galore. 

The marketplace for maritime & logistics buyers in the Middle East

After a two year hiatus, the event returns new and improved. For the first time, the maritime logistics industry will feature prominently, thus further strengthening the appeal for buyers and sellers. We’ll be welcoming thousands of attendees in person to the Dubai World Trade Centre, all eager to make the most of this face-to-face experience.

... and for those still experiencing travel restrictions, a digital access route will be available.

What they're Saying...

"Decarbonising the maritime sector is our responsibility. The industry needs to work together in order to achieve the targets set by the IMO. With support from a reputed industry event like SMLME, we look forward to knowledge sharing about this cause in the hope that the sector in the UAE and beyond achieves a greener status."
