Countdown to LISW 2017



London International Shipping Week 2017

LISW17 will be the ‘must attend’ event of 2017, offering over 160 industry functions and unique networking opportunities for leaders across all sectors of the international shipping industry – regulators, charterers, ship owners, ship managers, bunker suppliers, lawyers, ship brokers, bankers, insurers, insurance brokers, commodity traders and brokers, ship suppliers, port operators, shipping service providers and many more.

We look forward to seeing you again in September, 2017.

There is a growing appreciation that the shipping industry is vitally important to support everyday life and trade around the globe.

London International Shipping Week is a superb showcase for our sector.

Helen Deeble CBE
Chief Executive Officer, P&O Ferries Division

London has long been a centre of excellence for international shipping. LISW showcases how this World Capital City remains at the forefront of leading shipping industry developments in the 21st century.

Clemence Cheng
CEO / Managing Director, Hutchison Ports UK / Hutchison Group

Lloyd’s has been supporting and protecting the shipping industry for almost 330 years. As the world changes rapidly, London International Shipping Week provides a brilliant opportunity for global industry leaders to discuss what the future of shipping looks like. Whatever that future holds, Lloyd’s remains committed to supporting the industry, as it has done since 1688.

Inga Beale DBE
Chief Executive Officer, Lloyd's

LISW has, in very short order, joined the must-attend elite gatherings for the global shipping and marine industries. It not only showcases the market-leading maritime capability of the UK, but has also become a catalyst for the debate of thought-provoking issues and, indeed, thought-leadership on many challenging matters currently facing our industry.

Harry Theochari
Global Head of Transport, Norton Rose Fulbright

LISW17 provides an unrivalled networking opportunity for port representatives to meet with leaders from across all parts of the maritime sector and the international shipping community.

It helps to facilitate discussions on the challenges and opportunities facing the sector as well as an opportunity to promote maritime to UK Government and beyond.

British Ports Association, 2017

“London International Shipping Week’s importance to the industry is unquestioned, bringing together maritime leaders from across the world to look at the challenges and opportunities facing the sector. I’m proud the Government is once again involved, we look forward to working closely together and delivering an innovative and high profile week of events in 2017”

The Rt Hon John Hayes MP
Minister of State at the Department of Transport

“A great opportunity to remind the world’s shipowners and charterers that UK-based maritime businesses offer an unparalleled range of professional support services”

Jeremy Penn
The Baltic Exchange & Chair, Steering Group, LISW2017
