London International Shipping Week (LISW17) will feature over 160 industry functions and networking opportunities in London during the week of 11-15 September, 2017. The event is attended by leaders across all sectors of the international shipping industry. 

The events will be held by international shipping and marine trade associations and UK Government (known as Supporting Organisations), as well as by official sponsors of the week. An estimated 15,000 industry leaders are expected to attend the week, suggesting a global networking opportunity of the highest level.

LISW17 Conference and Gala Dinner

A major event of the week will be the one-da y LISW Conference, followed b y the LISW Gala Dinner, both to be held at the Grosvenor House Hotel on Park Lane on Thursday 14 September. The conference will be attended by over 500 industry leaders while an estimated 1,000 industry leade rs are expected to attend the evening Gala Dinner.

Industry leaders and top government speakers will use the official LISW17 Conference to debate the week’s main themes. A select group of 200 VIPs from across Global Shipping will be specially invited to the day.

Who will be coming to LISW17?

Major players and leaders from global shipping and related industries will attend the 160 or so events to be held during the week. 

Attendance categories are:

  1. Ship Owners, Charterers, Ship Managers and Shipbrokers
  2. Engineering, Marine, Shipbuilders, Emerging Technologies, Ship Suppliers, Specialists eg. Classification Societies
  3. Port Operators, Terminal Operators, Logistics Specialist Companies, Freight Operators
  4. Lawyers/Arbitrators, Insurers, Bankers, Stock Exchanges, Investors
  5. Maritime Education Bodies, Maritime Training and Skills Organisations, Maritime Recruitment Specialists
  6. Industry Bodies, Regulators, NGOs, Regional/Devolved Administration Support
  7. Government and Ambassadorial
  8. Supporting Organisations and their members
  9. Sponsors

LISW17 works because the strong number of high level industry events and networking opportunities will guarantee attendance by the global shipping industry. Either because they are members of the various Supporting Organisations and coming into London to attend their specific trade association or sponsor-led event, or because they see value in staying and attending other aligned events – so benefiting from the high level networking opportunities.

The involvement of international policymakers in LISW is vital to internationalising the week and helping to secure the attendance of industry VIPs.

Themes for the LISW17 Conference and Week

Themes for LISW17 will form a framework for debate at the official LISW17 Conference as well as for the various event organisers to follow when deciding which event they may wish to hold. The overarching theme is: ‘Tomorrow’s Maritime World: UK – the centre of maritime business’, LISW17 will explore five key topics: Tomorrow’s Prosperity, Tomorrow’s Industry Professionals, Tomorrow’s Business Solutions, Tomorrow’s Environment and Tomorrow’s Partnerships.
