Lloyd’s Register announced as LISW25 Blue Sapphire Legacy Sponsor

Shipping industry expertise and history come together for London International Shipping Week (LISW25) in the form of Lloyd’s Register which has just signed up for the 2025 running of this popular industry event.

In its role as Blue Sapphire Legacy Sponsor, Lloyd’s Register brings more than 260 years of trusted worldwide professionalism and strong industry relationships to LISW25.

Central to its input will be a strong commitment to sustainability, efficiency and resilience in the ocean economy.  As humanity faces some of its greatest challenges, including population growth, climate change, and rapid technological developments, there is an urgent need to achieve net-zero emissions by 2050. In this pivotal race, the ocean is a vital resource that plays a crucial role in meeting these challenges.

Lloyd’s Register’s technical and business advisory services enable shipping businesses to reach their full potential, now and into the future. With offices across the globe, the organisation offers clients advice, support and solutions during every stage of the asset lifecycle across the maritime value chain.

Dominic Miller, LR Senior Representative UK and Ireland, said: “As the first ever sponsor of LISW, Lloyd’s Register has consistently recognised the significant value that this flagship event offers for bringing together maritime leaders from across the world. We are confident that the 2025 edition will continue to foster collaboration amongst key industry stakeholders and yet again deliver opportunities for partnership and innovation.”

LISW Co-Founder and joint CEO, Llewellyn Bankes-Hughes, added: “We are delighted that Lloyd’s Register is on board for LISW25 as the Blue Sapphire Legacy Sponsor, underlying its dedication to the maritime sector and ensuring – through its continuing strong support – that this event will again be one of the biggest, most inclusive and most popular shipping events in the world.”

Adding its backing to LISW25 is another established supporter – Isle of Man Maritime. Lesley-Anne Walker, Director of Isle of Man Maritime, comments: “I am delighted to announce our continued sponsorship of London International Shipping Week, a commitment which reflects our dedication to supporting and promoting the global maritime industry. Through our involvement, we aim to foster international relationships and champion the innovative spirit that drives our sector.

“London International Shipping Week is not just an event; it’s a vital platform that aligns perfectly with our mission to enhance the Isle of Man’s status as a centre of maritime excellence. I can also confirm that we will once again be hosting an exclusive event during LISW, and staying true to our ‘dare to be different’ mantra, we hope to make it our best one yet.”
