Greece to host unique Bunker Summit February 1, 2007

Posted by grhomeboy in Shows & Conferences.

Bunkerworld and Petrospot (publisher of Bunkerspot) are delighted to announce they will coordinate their efforts to deliver a unique four-day Bunker Summit in Athens on May 8-11.

Held at the Athenaeum InterContinental Hotel, Athens, the Bunker Summit: Greece 2007 is a ground breaking four-day event, which offers a strong mix of conferencing,  networking, training and workshops.

Bunkerworld has gained a reputation for providing timely, topic-led events with noted successes with events in Copenhagen and New York in 2006; Marine Fuel Sustainability and Squeezing the Bunker Barrel respectively. Petrospot has gained a strong reputation for providing high-level training courses, such as the well-known Oxford Bunker Course.

The Bunkerworld Forum: Mediterranean and Black Sea (May 10-11) will once again aim to combine a fresh blend of expert speakers and real issues; this time focusing on the Mediterranean and Black Sea regions.

Preceding the forum, Petrospot is offering two advanced-level one-day workshops: The Practical, Technical & Legal Aspects of Bunkering, led by Chris Fisher, co-author of the best-selling book Bunkers; and Emissions from Ships: Dealing with a New Environment, led by independent consultant, Robin Meech.

Petrospot is also offering its one-day Bunker Arbitration Experience, a sophisticated training tool for bunker buyers, suppliers and maritime lawyers that has been performed to great acclaim in New York, Panama and Hamburg.

Realising the need for user-specific training and conferencing, Bunkerworld and Petrospot have come together to create a single, more effective single event.

Both companies see this as a perfect opportunity to work together to meet the needs of the local bunkering and shipping community, both in Greece and further afield.

According to Petrospot’s Managing Director, Llewellyn Bankes-Hughes: “The feedback from the Greek bunkering community has so far been extremely positive, particularly among the local universities and maritime business schools which welcome the high level training on offer.”

Alisdair Pettigrew, Director of Petromedia Ltd., owners of Bunkerworld, commented: “Combining the conferencing reputation that Bunkerworld has built-up over the past two years with Petrospot’s expertise in training sets the Bunker Summit apart from other events in the marine fuels sector.

“The summit will provide all aspects of knowledge tools required to perform in the modern bunker market.”
