Led by the Seatrade Maritime brand, this portfolio will now comprise three products to be held “in association with Lloyd's List” across the EMEA and Asia regions, including:
- Seatrade Awards in association with Lloyd’s List
- Seatrade Maritime Awards Asia in association with Lloyd’s List
- Seatrade Maritime Awards Middle East, Indian Subcontinent and Africa in association with Lloyd’s List
The Lloyds List Greek Shipping Awards will continue to serve the Greek & Cypriot communities without change but with full support from the Seatrade Maritime team. Away from the Awards portfolio, both Seatrade & Lloyd’s List will continue to operate their additional publishing, intelligence and events activities independently.
“For decades, both the Seatrade Maritime and Lloyd’s List awards portfolios have been delivering platforms to showcase excellence in the global maritime marketplace,” said Chris Morley, Group Event Director of Seatrade Maritime.
“Now that both brands are under one owner, we can consolidate our shared belief that by creating accessible and transparent awards schemes, we are able to truly showcase the best of industry achievement and enable positive development across our regional markets. The combination of these two industry-leading portfolios will allow us to further build on this commitment to our community, which will reap wider benefits across our industry,” he added.
Further information for all three Award ceremonies will be announced shortly, including details on entry categories which will continue to focus on key areas of industry interest including decarbonisation, digitalisation and seafarer wellbeing while acknowledging industry response to the COVID-19 pandemic.
“When it comes to navigating disruption, the maritime industry is exceptionally adept at adapting,” said Chris Hayman, Chairman of Seatrade.
“We have witnessed profound change over the last twelve months, and our industry has once again responded to ensure trade continues to operate while navigating its own challenges posed by decarbonisation, the global energy transition and accelerated adoption of digitalisation. We look forward to celebrating the achievements of this remarkable industry through this combined approach,” he continued.
