Streamlining IBIA's Global Bunker Industry Convention

Setting the Stage

The International Bunker Industry Association (IBIA) Annual Convention is renowned in the bunker and shipping sector. Every year, it gathers eminent speakers, sponsors, and delegates from diverse domains such as ship owners, bunker suppliers, regulators, academics, and NGOs. Yet, orchestrating such a grand event isn't without its backstage challenges.

Before the Spotlight

In 2019, from the 22nd to the 24th of October, Istanbul hosted the convention. Over these days, delegates delved deep into pertinent topics, focusing on safeguarding the future of the bunker and shipping industry. But while the convention was a hit, managing attendees and facilitating seamless networking remained significant hurdles.

The convention's brain trust needed a tool to untangle the complexities of managing attendees, sessions, and the networking maze. Their quest? A digital aid to amplify engagement, deepen participant connections, and overall elevate the attendee experience.
