LONDON: MARCH 2, 2020: The organisers of London International Shipping Week are proud to announce that Inmarsat plc has signed up as Diamond Sponsor of next year’s event, LISW21.
This announcement follows confirmation that the week-long premier global shipping and maritime event will be held during the week of September 6-10, 2021.
Inmarsat is the world’s leading provider of global mobile satellite communications. Shipping Innovation, owner of LISW21, welcomed Inmarsat’s continued involvement as a high-profile supporter of LISW and its decision to, once again, renew its top-level sponsorship position; a commitment it has made to every LISW since the event began in 2013.
LISW21 will once again be host to over 200 events during the week as well as the popular headline conference and Gala Dinner that will be staged at the Grosvenor House Hotel, Park Lane, London on Thursday September 9th.
Announcing Inmarsat’s support of LISW21, Ronald Spithout, President, Inmarsat Maritime, said: “The fact that over 800 guests attended our two events last year on digitalisation and crew welfare, highlights the importance that the international shipping community places on London and the UK as a centre of maritime innovation and we are delighted to continue our long-standing commitment to LISW by working closely again with the organisers and the UK Government.”
Sean Moloney, Director of Shipping Innovation, said Inmarsat’s continued support of LISW underlined its importance as a truly international event, spanning all shipping and maritime sectors across all maritime clusters.
“We are delighted to be continuing our long-held and valued relationship with Inmarsat as work gets underway to start preparing for the next instalment. Inmarsat sees LISW as the right opportunity to interact with the global shipping community as well as UK Government and the UK maritime sector at large. And we look forward to working with them, as well as all our other Sponsors and Supporting Organisations to ensure we deliver an LISW21 of the highest level.”
