Following another sell-out event in 2018, the Global Tank Storage Awards will return March 26th 2019 in Rotterdam.
Now in its third year, the Global Tank Storage Awards are designed to highlight those that excel in a range of different categories relating to terminal achievements, equipment innovations, ports and individual success.
Hosted by market leading publication, Tank Storage Magazine, the 2018 gala dinner & ceremony attracted more than 200 terminal professionals from as far as Saudi Arabia, India, Malaysia, South Africa, the US and all across Europe.
The event, which is now a fixture in the global storage calendar, saw a huge increase in the number of nominations submitted from the previous year, up to more than 80 submissions across the 12 categories.
‘The evening was a real success, with great food, drinks and entertainment, making the perfect setting to host our clients and network with the other companies represented there,’ says Darren Hughes, international business development manager, Concrete Canvas, sponsor of the 2018 Most Innovative Technology award.
The 2019 edition promises to be bigger and better with more nominations, an all-inclusive drinks reception, a three-course dinner, captivating entertainment, a casino and much more.
The event allows an exclusive opportunity to entertain clients & reward colleagues for their hard work throughout the year.
‘The Global Tank Storage Awards ceremony is always exciting. This year we were really proud to win the Best Port Award, which has given us a significant amount of international recognition and media attention,’ says Sandra De Mey, commercial manager, North Sea Port.
As an added benefit this year, as well as being rewarded on the night, the winners will be further highlighted in a special ‘Winners Exhibition Showcase’ at Tank Storage Asia 2018 and StocExpo Europe 2019.
Margaret Dunn, event manager, adds: ‘Our second edition was a resounding success, with many tables for our 2019 event already sold.
‘It is great to hear the continued positive feedback from the industry about the importance of having an event such as this. The awards allow an exclusive opportunity to entertain clients and reard colleagues for their hard work throughout the year.’
