Sponsors embark as LISW25 sets sail

London International Shipping Week has set sail towards its 2025 event with a number of high profile sponsors declaring their support.

Gibraltar Maritime Services will sponsor the rooftop reception following the LISW25 Headline Conference at the London headquarters of the International Maritime Organization on Wednesday Sept 17th 2025. This popular event enables delegates to network on the IMO’s beautiful roof terrace while enjoying breathtaking views over London and the River Thames.

The Minister for the Gibraltar Port, the Hon Gemma Arias Vasquez, said: “I am delighted that, once again, Gibraltar Maritime Services will proudly shine a spotlight on the Gibraltar Port through its sponsorship of the post-conference reception at the esteemed International Maritime Organization. This sponsorship strategically positions Gibraltar at the epicentre of global shipping, ensuring a noteworthy presence during the forthcoming London International Shipping Week in September 2025.”

Supporting the Headline Conference is the UK P&I Club as Lanyard Sponsor. One of the oldest P&I clubs in the world, the UK P&I Club champions best industry practice and invests in innovation for a safer tomorrow at sea by protecting shipping globally.

Andrew Taylor, CEO of UK P&I, said: “We are proud to once again be a London International Shipping Week sponsor. As the industry continues to navigate a period of profound change, the opportunity to gather and collaborate, exchange ideas and deepen networks is increasingly valuable. We look forward to participating in another series of dynamic and enlightening events at LISW25.”

International travel specialist ATPI becomes the LISW25 Official Travel Partner and will support the official opening of the London Stock Exchange Market during a ceremony on Monday 15th September 2025, the first day of LISW25.

The opening of the London Stock Exchange is the first official event of LISW25 and always a highlight, bringing into sharp focus the importance of London as a centre for international trade as well as a leading maritime hub.

“The London International Shipping Week is an important platform for us to engage with key industry players on topics integral to their business and we are looking forward to continuing the conversation as the Official Travel Partner in partnership with Qatar Airways for LISW25. It’s set to be one of the most important weeks on our calendar and I’m confident that our participation will help us continue to meet the changing travel management needs in the global shipping sector,” said Nikos Gazelidis, Chief Commercial Officer at ATPI Marine Travel.”

Welcoming these first of many sponsors and supporting organisations, Gareth Long, newly-appointed Managing Director of LISW25 organiser, Shipping Innovation, commented: “Securing such valued sponsors so early in the planning of LISW25 is a reflection of the huge value our supporters place on the event. I look forward to welcoming them, and many others, to London next year.”
