DMC sponsors Seatrade Middle East awards
Dubai , November 7, 2007
Dubai Maritime City (DMC), the world's first purpose-built maritime centre and a member of the Dubai World Group of companies, participated as one of the lead sponsors in the Seatrade Middle East and Indian Subcontinent Awards.
The events were held at the Madinat Jumeirah in Dubai. DMC sponsored Seatrade's Ship Repair/Shipyard Award as part of its strategic plan to help strengthen the region's maritime sector.
'DMC is proud to be participating in this event as it is our goal to advance the maritime industry in the region while upholding the values of quality and excellence in all aspects of the industry. DMC will continue to support Seatrade's programmes, which have been instrumental in promoting a culture of quality and innovation in the region's maritime community for the last two decades,' said COO, DMC, Ali Al-Daboos.
The Seatrade Middle East and Indian Subcontinent Awards, which followed the Middle East Money and Ships Conference, celebrate and reward the excellence and innovation in the region's maritime sector during the previous 12 months.
A total of 60 companies and organisations were short-listed in 25 categories, relating to maritime safety and the environment, ship and port operations and efficiency, security and financing, and more.
Seatrade has also become an annual networking platform among decision-makers and senior executives in the industry, making it one of the most important maritime events in the region.
As sponsors of the Ship Repair/Shipyard Award, as well as the sponsor of the event's gala presentation dinner, DMC honoured the award winners for 'the best performer in development and diversification in investment and cargo volumes', in front of an audience comprising around 800 senior executives.
A select panel of independent judges, who are prominent figures in the shipping and maritime sectors, determined the winners of Seatrade's maritime business-related categories based on outstanding success and achievements.Trade Arabia News Service
