London International Shipping Week is one of the most important international shipping and maritime events in the world. It has grown consistently – and rapidly – since its inception in September 2013, and creates a space where the varied elements from the shipping world can meet to discuss the range of challenges and opportunities it faces.
The week offers over 200 industry functions and unique networking opportunities for leaders across all sectors of the international shipping industry – regulators, charterers, ship owners, ship managers, bunker suppliers, lawyers, ship brokers, bankers, insurers, insurance brokers, commodity traders and brokers, ship suppliers, port operators, shipping service providers and many more.
The University of Plymouth has had an increasingly prominent presence at the event in recent years, showcasing its expertise in fields including clean maritime, maritime cyber security and maritime logistics to a global audience.
Below are details of some of the events, and announcements, that it has been part of during London International Shipping Week 2023.
