Preparations for London International Shipping Week continue in earnest with the organising committee and Steering Group lining up the top shipping, political and global industry leaders selected to speak at the flagship conference to be held on Thursday September 10th.

Speaker invitations are being sent out as we speak and a list of 500 shipping industry VIPs from around the world have been personally invited to attend this highly prestigious week.

This year’s event promises to be significantly larger than LISW2013 with over 100 events expected, attracting the shipping industry glitterati to London during the week.

As events and conferences are being scheduled, demand for LISW conference and Gala Dinner tickets is exceeding expectation which has resulted in organisers moving the main conference to Grosvenor House to cater for the increasing numbers.

Jeremy Penn, Chairman of the LISW Steering Group, said: “We’ve been overwhelmed with the ever growing demand for LISW which clearly indicates the need in the market for such an event. We’re starting to execute our plans for showing the world the strength of the maritime industry in London and are thrilled with all of the support we are receiving.”
