The Humber is the UK’s busiest port complex and 4th busiest in Europe, with 16,100 people employed across the sector. The ports handle every type of cargo and provide a unique and critical infrastructure for a range of sectors, most notably; renewable energy, oil, construction materials, automotive, steel, chemicals and food.
THMA is organising a free to attend Humber Maritime Showcase at the event in collaboration with the Humber LEP, University of Hull and key regional stakeholders. This is an outstanding opportunity for the Humber to highlight its strengths as a leading International maritime hub.
It is the first time the Humber has been represented at the conference which attracts 15,000 global industry leaders from all maritime sectors.
The showcase will bring together business leaders and government officials and members of the media, to discuss key topics, investment opportunities and skills to heighten the profile of our region. Keynote speakers include Lord Prescott, Simon Bird Director Humber Associated British Ports and David Dingle, Chairman of Carnival & Maritime UK. Further details of the event will be published shortly. The showcase will precede an event at the same venue hosted by Mersey Maritime as part of a Maritime UK cluster day.
