Inmarsat confirmed as Diamond sponsor of LISW21

02 March 2020: Inmarsat will once again be Diamond sponsor of London International Shipping Week (LISW) when the premier maritime event returns in 2021.

Shipping Innovation, owner of LISW21, has welcomed Inmarsat’s continued involvement as a high-profile supporter and the top level sponsor; a commitment it has made to every LISW since the event began in 2013.

LISW21 on 6-10 September will be host to over 200 events as well as the popular headline conference and gala dinner.

Long-standing commitment

Announcing Inmarsat’s support of LISW21, Ronald Spithout, Inmarsat Maritime President, said: “The fact that over 800 guests attended our two events last year on digitalisation and crew welfare highlights the importance that the international shipping community places on London and the UK as a centre of maritime innovation and we are delighted to continue our long-standing commitment to LISW by working closely again with the organisers and the UK Government.”

Sean Moloney, Director of Shipping Innovation, said Inmarsat’s continued support of LISW underlined its importance as a truly international event, spanning all shipping and maritime sectors.

“We are delighted to be continuing our long-held and valued relationship with Inmarsat as work gets underway to start preparing for the next instalment,” he said. “Inmarsat sees LISW as the right opportunity to interact with the global shipping community as well as UK Government and the UK maritime sector at large. And we look forward to working with them, as well as all our other sponsors and supporting organisations, to ensure we deliver an LISW21 of the highest level.”
