THE CENTRE OF
GLOBAL TRADE
The biennial London International Shipping Week 2019 (LISW19) has become one of the world’s most important shipping and trading events on the calendar.
For centuries, London has been at the centre of global trade. The city’s expertise in maritime insurance, law, shipbroking,  nance and all aspects of the international shipping industry continues to position London as the key place to do business. Supported
by the UK Government, LISW19 allows both London and the greater UK maritime sector to showcase, to the world, the breadth and depth of their commercial maritime services, with delegates from the global shipping industry selecting from the many events taking place during the week those which best suit their particular needs.
Some of the events are market-speci c. Others demonstrate the knowledge and experience that
is exported to the shipping hubs around the world. Unlike other trade seminars, the LISW19 Headline Conference on Thursday 12 September, is designed
to provide a ‘big picture’ view of global seaborne
trade, with corporate keynote speakers and expert panellists discussing the challenges and solutions to the complex but essential requirements for the massive international trade that we all depend on. l
