London International Shipping Week

The week-long premier global shipping and maritime event, London International Shipping Week will be held during the week of September 6-10, 2021.


In 2019, London International Shipping Week took place across London, and featured a number of regional events. LISW19 highlighted London’s key role on the international maritime stage, and the strength and breadth of the UK’s maritime offering.
Our industry partnerships with the UK Government, led by the Department for Transport, ensured substantial ministerial and official involvement throughout the week. Among the sectors represented were charterers, shipowners, ship managers, shipbrokers, lawyers, regulators, bankers, ship and bunker suppliers, commodity traders, port authorities and operators, insurers, maritime service providers, ship builders, engineering and technology companies.

Leaders from every sector of the global maritime industry took part in more than 200 meetings, seminars and functions throughout the week. Over 150 global maritime organisations and 65 commercial partners pledged their support for LISW19 hosting events during the week.

The week culminated in the Flagship Conference and spectacular gala dinner at the Grosvenor House, Park Lane.

London International Shipping Week has been hailed a resounding success by thousands of global shipping industry leaders across all sectors of the global shipping industry.

  • Nusrat Ghani MPNusrat Ghani MPShipping Minister

    “the best international shipping week yet”

  • Michael ParkerMichael ParkerGlobal Industry Head, Shipping & Logistics, Citigroup

    “As we look forward with anticipation to the 4th London International Shipping Week in September, London and the rest of the UK’s maritime business in all the different sectors will engage with the global maritime community and key leaders in the consumer and industrial world who will join us to discuss the vital issues of the day. The changes that maritime regulations and developments in the global economy and the supply chains of world trade will have on everyone involved makes participation in the events of LISW 2019 essential for those who need to know and want to know how their business will be impacted.”

  • Tom BoardleyTom BoardleySecretary General (Europe), Cruise Lines International Association (CLIA)

    “As we look forward to the next LISW in September this year, it is a great opportunity to remind the world, and the many stakeholders and supporters of the maritime industry in the UK, how important the sector is to the UK’s global profile. The enhanced profile that the IMO is taking in environmental sustainability, from its HQ in London, is just one indication of how the UK will continue play host to key global discussions this year, and beyond, that will dictate the industry’s future.”

  • Harry TheochariHarry TheochariChair, Maritime UK | Partner – Global Head of Transport, Norton Rose Fulbright

    “At a time when global shipping businesses are facing so many challenges it is particularly exciting to be a part of, and to be working with, the maritime industries of the UK. There is a clear understanding in the UK of the issues we face but there is also a real sense of belief and confidence in our maritime industries which is shared by Government. MUK and I are very much looking forward to welcoming all our friends, colleagues and business partners from around the world to LISW in September not only to share the issues and concerns we all have for the future, but to discuss, debate and hopefully develop possible answers and remedies to these vexing matters. The desire to facilitate innovative thinking on a global basis has been at the heart of LISW since its inception and that is the reason it has, in such a short space of time, become one of the most important maritime events in the world. There is certainly a need, right now, for us all to see how we can best take our industry forward into a century that will necessitate tremendous change.”

  • Clemence ChengClemence ChengCEO / Managing Director – Europe Division, Hutchison Ports UK / Hutchison Ports Group

    “London, the World Capital City, has always been at the forefront of shipping industry developments. LISW19 will further demonstrate how London remains a global shipping centre and a driver for World trade.”
