Chris Hayman, Chairman of Seatrade, said “The 2019 Seatrade Awards offer a global platform for companies achieving excellence in the shipping and maritime industries to come together to inspire the markets with their pioneering spirit. The Awards provide ever higher benchmarks in recognising achievement in leadership and innovation.”

“We encourage companies in these sectors to nominate and wish them all good luck during the process. We have the largest assembled panel of expert judges ever, and we look forward to seeing you all at London’s Guildhall on 7th May” continued Mr Hayman.

The Seatrade Awards offer categories that suit companies of all sizes and disciplines such as the Fuel Efficiency Award, right through to the Digital Technology Award. This year’s programme also introduces a new category – ‘Integration of Women in the Maritime Sector,’ which recognises the inspirational leadership and achievements of the industry’s leading women.

Bob Jaques, Editor, Seatrade Maritime Review, fellow organisers of the Awards added: “Following on from last year’s successful awards ceremony in 2018, we look forward to continue recognising and celebrating flourishing companies of all shapes and sizes from across the globe, which are helping drive growth for the maritime and shipping sectors.”

Nominations for the Seatrade Awards close on Friday 1st March. The shortlist will be announced in April and the winners will be revealed at the Seatrade Awards ceremony on the evening of Tuesday 7th May at London’s prestigious Guildhall (Dress code: Business attire).
