8th Seatrade Maritime Awards Asia calls for entries and nominations
The 8th Seatrade Maritime Awards Asia is calling for entries and nominations in 12 different award categories, which seek to recognise individuals and companies for their outstanding contributions to Asia’s maritime industry.

The awards will be held on 16 November 2015 at the Hong Kong Convention and Exhibition Centre, Hong Kong.

Individuals and corporates have until 31 July 2015 to submit their entries and nominations to Seatrade to shout about their achievements in the 12 different competitive award categories.

For the first time, the awards scheme has introduced a new competitive category – the Maritime Logistics Award. Judging criteria in this new category include achievements in areas such as productivity improvements and level of value-added services.

All entries and nominations in the 12 competitive award categories will be adjudicated by an independent panel of judges who are all industry stalwarts with decades of trade experience.

In addition to the competitive categories, Seatrade will be presenting the Young Person of the Year, Personality of the Year, Contribution to the Development of the Maritime Cluster in Hong Kong, and Lifetime Achievement Awards in recognition of exceptional contributions by luminaries in the region’s maritime industry. Past recipients include influential industry heavy-weights like Tan Sri Frank Tsao of IMC Group and CC Tung of Orient Overseas (International) Limited (OOIL).

Marcus Hand, Seatrade Maritime Review Asia Editor and Chairman of the Seatrade Maritime Awards Asia Judging Panel, commented: “We are really excited that the Seatrade Maritime Awards Asia are returning to Hong Kong as part of the Hong Kong Logistics and Maritime Week. Winning an award is a testament of excellence and success and will position the winners in the forefront of the region’s maritime industry.”

Widely acknowledged as one of the region's most prestigious industry awards, the Seatrade Maritime Awards Asia is a partner event of the Asian Logistics Maritime Conference (ALMC) and supported by the Hong Kong Shipowners Association and the Hong Kong Trade Development Council (HKTDC).

The black tie gala dinner is expected to be attended by over 400 leading industry executives.
