The UK Chamber is delighted to announce a new partnership with ITN Productions, to develop an in-depth, online programme covering the challenges facing the UK shipping industry.
The programme will include a range of short films and interviews, and will be launched during the 2015 London International Shipping Week.
ITN Productions’ UK Director of Programming, Simon Shelley said:
“ITN Productions is delighted to be partnering with the UK Chamber of Shipping to tell the compelling story of the UK shipping industry. The aim is to bring to life the nation’s maritime industries, defining the importance of the sector to the UK and protecting its heritage. By bringing new innovations and solutions to screen, and discussing the key issues, we also hope to shape the future of the industry. We’re very excited to embark on this unique project.”
Guy Platten, Chief Executive of the UK Chamber of Shipping, said:
“ITN Productions’ reputation is second to none, and this new partnership is an exciting venture both for the chamber and the industry as a whole.
“It is the latest sign that the shipping industry is raising its profile. This year, the UK Chamber’s coverage in the mainstream media has increased by over 300%, and our social media following has doubled. By working with the creative hub behind ITN, we will be promoting the industry to an even wider audience in a modern way.”
