The show brings together the best and brightest from the Asian bulk liquid storage industry, providing the perfect opportunity for leading manufacturers and suppliers to showcase their innovative products and services to a captive audience of international buyers and decision makers.

The Tank Storage Asia 2016 conference features over 20 global authorities from the bulk liquid storage sector. Experts from companies such as Nexant, Tri-Zen, Aurecon and API will provide visitors with an insight into the sector’s critical issues at both a local level and on a global scale.

Clive Gibson, Vice President, Asia Energy & Chemicals at Nexant, will take a regional outlook, focusing on the key drivers for storage demand in Asia crude oil, and looking at the petrochemical trends in the region.

Maintaining the regional emphasis will be Danial Mah, CEO of Labuan International Business and Financial Centre, who will present ‘Malaysia as Asia’s Trading Hub’. He will examine why Malaysia is perfectly suited for oil and gas trading, whilst also looking at the incentives for oil commodities traders in the area.China is set to be a key focus at the 2016 conference, with Ms Li Li, Head of Research Team at ICIS China, taking to the stage on day one to discuss ‘China: Good or bad timing for the crude oil storage business in the world’s top crude importing country?’ Ms Li will examine China’s trading, renting and contango; looking into its crude oil importing and storage prospects, and speaking about China’s State Petroleum Reserve Plan.

Many of the speakers will be taking a more industry specific focus, for example, Ignatius Hwang, Partner at Squire Patton Boggs Singapore, will look at mitigating development risks for storage terminals.

Running alongside the conference programme will be an exhibition hall, with over 75 leading organisations, including Colfax Fluid Handling, Concrete Canvas, Emco Wheaton, Fort Vale Engineering, Hitachi Critical Facilities Protection, Maide Machine and Siemens. Many of these will use the show to launch new products and services to the tank storage market.
