Seen as the ‘must attend’ event in 2015 for the global shipping industry, London International Shipping Week will bring world shipping together for one week.
With a wealth of industry functions planned for the week, London International Shipping Week will be the high level networking opportunity of the year for leaders across all sectors of the international shipping industry – regulators, charterers, ship owners, ship managers, lawyers, brokers, bankers, insurers, ship suppliers, ports and shipping service providers and all involved in the shipping world. A major event of the week will be the one-day LISW Conference and Gala Dinner, to be held on Thursday 10 September. The Conference will be held at the spectacular Willis Building in the heart of the City of London, where industry leaders and top government speakers will focus on London at the heart of maritime. Later in the evening, the Gala Dinner (preceded by a Champagne Reception) will take place at the Grosvenor House Hotel, one of the most luxurious five-star hotels in London. London International Shipping Week is organized by Shipping Innovation – a joint venture between Elaborate Communications and Petrospot – in association with Maritime UK partners The Baltic Exchange, Maritime London and the UK Chamber of Shipping and with The City UK, the independent promotional body for UK financial and professional services.
