Marine Tours has shown its support for one of the maritime industry’s biggest events by becoming a Bronze Sponsor of London International Shipping Week 2021 (LISW21).
The leading Greek travel management company will host its webinar ‘Crew Changes: The Challenges and the Regulatory Impact of Vaccination programmes’ at 3pm UK time on 13 September during this year’s hybrid event.
“We are excited to sponsor LISW21, which promises to be the largest and most important London International Shipping Week to date," said Konstantinos Oikonomou, Marine Tours' CEO.
“As a leading travel management company with more than 40+ years of deep-rooted experience in the marine and offshore travel industry, we are committed to supporting the shipping community and truly value being part of the maritime ecosystem.
“For LISW21, we look forward to connecting with current and prospective clients, participating in stimulating talks and getting together with the global maritime community for the first time since the pandemic began.”
Sean Moloney, Director of Shipping Innovation, owner and manager of LISW, said he was delighted to welcome Marine Tours onboard as a sponsor for this year’s event, which takes place from 13–17 September.
Founded in 1980, Marine Tours has evolved into a travel management company that helps crew and shipping executives reach marine and offshore destinations. It also specialises in the MICE (meetings, incentives, conferences and exhibitions) industry, and is one of the Greek market’s largest producers of airline tickets.
LISW21 is a hybrid event with attendees able to join in person or virtually. The LISW21 Portal, a hub for attending or hosting events online, visiting virtual exhibition stands or networking with other attendees, extends this year’s LISW to a far wider international audience than ever before.
