At last, details can be revealed about the spectacular Gala Evening celebrations which are planned as the fitting culmination of London International Shipping Week 2023 (LISW23), and which are supported by three major sponsors.

On Thursday 14 September 2023, a Champagne Gala Reception, a fabulous black-tie Gala Dinner and – for the first time – an exciting After Party will all take place on one extraordinary evening to celebrate the tenth anniversary of LISW and all that is good about London, the UK and the international shipping and maritime industry.

The glittering evening will be held at Evolution London, a truly special venue in London’s Battersea Park which will welcome up to 2,000 of the world’s foremost shipping industry leaders in a magnificent setting with excellent communication links, including specially chartered boats for guests on the River Thames.

The LISW23 Champagne Gala Reception will be sponsored by HFW; the Gala Dinner by ABS; and the After Party by newly announced sponsor, the French International Register (RIF).
Eric Banel, General Director of the General Directorate for Maritime Affairs, Fishing and Aquaculture (DGAMPA) at the French Ministry of State for the Sea, said: “The 10th edition of LISW will be the inescapable event in 2023 for all those involved in shipping. This high-level meeting will take place at a key moment for this sector: the energy transition has to be successful without neglecting the issues of maritime security and global economic competition.”

Tickets for the Gala Dinner will go on sale – via the LISW website – at the end of November. Those eager to pre-register their interest in reserving a place at this not to be missed celebratory evening, should contact Karen Martin (details below).
