LISW23 Headline Conference

The LISW23 Headline Conference will once again take place in the Plenary Hall of the International Maritime Organization (IMO) on the banks of the River Thames, underlining its position as one of the most important shipping and maritime events in the world and reinforcing its key role in international thought leadership.

Held on Wednesday 13 September, the LISW23 Headline Conference is sponsored by Tsakos Energy Navigation (TEN), which will be celebrating 30 years as a public company.


Sean Moloney, Director of Shipping Innovation and co-founder of LISW, said LISW23 ‘conference day’ will be a day to remember for those seeking blue sky thinking from the best speakers in the world of international business and shipping.

“Welcoming a shipowning personality as important as Dr Nikolas Tsakos – Founder, President and Chief Executive Officer of TEN Ltd and Chairman Emeritus of INTERTANKO – into the LISW family also underlines the importance shipping places on LISW as the must-attend global maritime event.


“As a thought leader in his maritime sphere, it is completely fitting that TEN has come onboard as sponsor of the headline conference. Dr Tsakos is a highly valued member of the LISW23 Board of Advisors, as he was in LISW19 and LISW21, and we look forward to his full participation during this exciting week,” he said.


The themes, speakers and moderators of the LISW23 Headline Conference will be announced shortly.


The Conference fee includes lunch and coffee breaks. In addition, every delegate will also be invited to attend the post-Conference Evening Reception on the rooftop of the IMO, overlooking the River Thames and London skyline.


The Evening Reception is sponsored, for the second time running, by HM Government of Gibraltar, the Gibraltar Maritime Administration, and the Port Authority of Gibraltar who together represent the many companies, private organisations and public entities that make up the thriving maritime sector in Gibraltar.


Registration to the Headline Conference is now open. Due to its nature as a fixed-seat auditorium, space will be limited in the IMO’s Plenary Hall so early booking is advised to avoid disappointment.
