 TOC Middle East connects with the region’s strongest players and enables them to be updated on current and future mega infrastructure projects and understand how to benefit from the changing landscape of Middle East shipping.

TOC Middle East is part of a global portfolio of events that bring together stakeholders of the container supply chain to learn debate and network. TOC has built a strong reputation as the trusted event portfolio for the maritime trade, shipping, ports and terminals communities.

The events now have a renewed focus on supply chain making them the premier business and networking event for the stakeholders within the container supply chain.

Investment in port development in the Middle East is now close to $35 billion and this is only set to keep on rising over the next decade. The region is witnessing a rapid rise in container traffic - estimated at around 35 million teu in 2020, which means that local ports need to invest heavily in their infrastructure to meet these future demands.
