London International Shipping Week (LISW) is proud to announce Inmarsat Global Ltd as Lead Diamond Sponsor for LISW17. Inmarsat is a British satellite telecommunications company which provides mobile communication services to the maritime industry worldwide. Inmarsat continues to be highly supportive of LISW, choosing to renew their prestigious diamond sponsorship positioning, which the company held in both 2015 and 2013.
“London International Shipping Week is a highlight in the global maritime calendar,” says Ronald Spithout, Inmarsat Maritime President. “The UK has been a driving force in the maritime industry from the beginning. Being at the heart of a hugely successful event in London reflects our heritage at Inmarsat as a UK based organisation and also highlights the continued role of the UK as a hub for innovation.
“Following the recent launch of Inmarsat Maritime’s Fleet Xpress service, LISW17 is an ideal opportunity to engage with friends from all areas of the global maritime sector to take forward the dialogue on what the Internet of Everywhere means for shipping and how the next generation of ship-to-shore connectivity is redefining what’s possible for enhancing operations, crew welfare and safety at sea.”
This adds to a number of confirmed sponsorships including, The Baltic Exchange (Gold) and law firm Hill Dickinson LLP (Bronze).
Jeremy Penn, Chairman of the LISW Steering Group said: “I am delighted that LISW17 is already attracting sponsorship from companies and organisations of such a high calibre. This highlights the strong reputation that LISW has built over the last few years as a leading event in the maritime calendar, and suggests that LISW17 will be another huge success.”
