LISW is the must attend maritime event of 2015, with over 100 industry functions and networking opportunities taking place during the 7th - 11th September 2015 in the heart of London.  Organised by Shipping Innovation, the event is aimed at leaders across all sectors of the international shipping industry - from regulators, charterers, ship owners, ship managers, bunker suppliers, lawyers, ship brokers, bankers, insurers, commodity traders, ship suppliers, port operators and shipping service providers.

Isle of Man Maritime Group Chairman, Bruce McGregor, commented, “LISW presents the perfect opportunity for the Group to build on the awareness and publicity generated from our event at the International Festival for Business.  The Isle of Man has a very strong maritime sector and we are keen to promote the fact that although the Group are Island based, our expertise spreads globally – many of our members have international offices and large international client portfolios. 

We are currently planning to host an evening reception as part of LISW on Tuesday 8th September 2015 at the historic Trinity House, where we hope to attract a large international audience.  We will be inviting guests to come and network with us, explore our maritime history and learn more about the strength and breadth of services provided by Isle of Man based organisations. LISW provides a great new opportunity to showcase the Isle of Man Maritime Group and its members”.
