The International Bunker Industry Association (IBIA) and Global Event Partners Ltd. are pleased to announce their strategic partnership to host the leading Gas, LNG, Bunkering & Power Summit for the Americas in Panama on 20-22 November 2019.

IBIA’s one day summit is positioned at a key point on the global IMO 2020 timeline when vessels will have just started their transition to 0.50% sulphur bunker fuels and is one of IBIA’s events where delegates can benefit from this real-world experience of IMO2020’s impact.

IBIA’s summit features a full day’s programme focusing on Panama and related bunkers markets. It will provide critical insight, training, and networking opportunities for all stakeholders including shippers, carriers, suppliers, traders, Port Authorities, regulators, NGOs, brokers, lawyers, surveyors and academics.

Key among the discussion points will be an exploration of what the impact of the IMO 2020 sulphur regulation will be for bunker buyers, suppliers, and operators in the region, particularly with respect to compliance solutions, enforcement, and the availability of new fuels. In addition to proving an understanding into the cost of IMO 2020 from shippers to suppliers, the seminar will also showcase the current regional bunkering infrastructure and look at what the future holds the regions bunker market.
