The first Global Tank Storage Awards was filled with anticipation and excitement, and it did not disappoint on either front. The sold-out event, attended by 180 professionals from across the tank terminal sector, was hosted by international comedian Bob Maclaren and as guests dined on a sumptuous three course meal, they were entertained by a magician.
The evening celebrated achievements by terminal operators, ports, equipment suppliers and individuals. Following the award’s ceremony, guests enjoyed trying their luck at the casino as well as enjoying the photobooth as live band Blend-It performed some familiar favourites.
Margaret Dunn, Tank Storage Magazine’s publisher, says: ‘Our first event exceeded our expectations and it was clear that everyone had a really enjoyable evening. We are looking forward to working closely with the industry to select next year’s judges and categories and continue growing the event.’
‘Loadtec and Zipfluid spent a very enjoyable evening at the first Global Tank Storage Awards gala dinner. It was a good opportunity to host our clients from StocExpo Europe in a relaxed environment. The event was very well organised and a good time was had by all. Well done to the Tank Storage team!’
