The Main Dinner Sponsor is the UK Ship Register.
After the recent success at London
International Shipping week where the UK Chamber hosted a range of events with
influential speakers from across industry, the UK Chamber of Shipping is
delighted to announce the UK Ship Register as its main dinner sponsor for its
Annual Dinner next February.
The UK shipping industry is vital to the UK economy. It contributes over £14 billion annually, supporting an estimated 86,000 jobs and transporting 95% of the UK’s trade.
The UK Chamber’s Annual Dinner is the premier black-tie event in the shipping calendar and provides the opportunity to network with colleagues and celebrate its ongoing success. Last year’s event attracted nearly 800 guests from across the industry and in 2017 the Duke of Cambridge was the guest of honour.
The UK Ship Register plays a key role in the success of the UK shipping industry. The team at the UK Ship Register, together with colleagues in the wider Maritime & Coastguard Agency, is dedicated to championing the success of the UK as a leading global maritime hub by supporting the UK Chamber of Shipping Annual Dinner.
Katy Ware, Director of Maritime Safety and Standards at the UK Ship Register said:
“We’re delighted to be sponsoring the UK Chamber of Shipping Annual Dinner and supporting an innovative and evolving UK maritime sector. The team at the UK Ship Register have a renewed focus on building long term relationships with the UK Maritime industry, which will become increasingly important as we look to evolve and support our customers’ operational needs.”
Tony Jerome, Head of Business Development at the UK Chamber of Shipping said:
“To have secured the UK Ship Register as the main dinner sponsor for our Annual Dinner is absolutely great news. The UK Ship Register is a vital part in the overall success of the UK shipping industry, and we thank them for their ongoing support.
“The Annual Dinner, which last year attracted nearly 800 guests from industry and government, really is the number one shipping event of the year and tickets are now on sale.”
The UK Ship Register is committed to building on the UK Flag’s foundations for quality and safety to bring the industry a modern, customer-focused flag with a range of advantages. Looking forward they have a renewed focus, working much more closely with customers and industry, creating long term sustainable partnerships to grow the UK Flag and support the UK Maritime industry.
UK Ship Register customers already have peace of mind with access to world-class surveyors, support and technical expertise, and policy know how. Moving forwards, they will also benefit from personalised round-the-clock support, with digital services and better access to surveyors across the globe. They are also working on plans to offer improved fiscal incentives.
