The INTERTANKO 2001 Tanker Event will be held in Sydney, Australia on 22-25 April 2001. The Event will be the eighth in the well-known series of international tanker conventions launched by INTERTANKO in 1996. The Sydney Tanker Event 2001 also marks the return of the meeting to the Asia-Pacific Region – the 1998 Event having been held in Singapore.

In recent years Australia has become a major conference venue, and Sydney is repeatedly quoted as the most popular travel destination in the world. The unique way Sydney hosted the Summer Olympics 2000 – said to be the best Olympics ever – showcased the charms of the this dynamic, young city to a global audience, and increased its popularity even further.

The 2001 Event is being held at the Sheraton on the Park Hotel in the centre of Sydney, and INTERTANKO is compiling a conference programme which includes strong commercial and technical sessions. Topics on the agenda will include:

  • Update on the international oil and tanker market with a focus on the Asia-Pacific region
  • Tanker shipping - regional oil and gas developments, including Pacific Basin, North West Shelf and Timor Gap projects
  • Chartering on the web - can it live up to its hype?
  • Tanker shipping – impact of classification on quality and safety – challenges ahead
  • Tomorrow’s tanker – standards for the future
  • Piracy – an increasing problem for international shipping

To share their views and forecasts on the future of the tanker industry, we have invited a wide range of prominent speakers, each representing the highest level of expertise within their own sectors of tanker shipping.

The Sydney Tanker Event will also include a wide range of social events, not least a sunset dinner cruise around Sydney Harbour and the INTERTANKO Annual  Dinner at the Sydney Town Hall.
