ICS Announces Sponsors for its Flagship Conference 2019

The International Chamber of Shipping (ICS) is delighted to announce the first sponsors for the ICS Flagship Conference Setting Course for 2050: Powering World Trade, on Wednesday September 11, 2019 at the British Library.

Lloyd’s Register; The Nigerian Maritime Administration and Safety Agency (NIMASA), SEA\LNG, The Turkish Shipbuilders’ Association (GISBIR) and Witherbys have all pledged to partner with ICS and support what is anticipated to be a unique and thought-provoking event during London International Shipping Week. Leading experts from outside the maritime sector have been invited to join key figures in the shipping industry to explore how the changing dynamics of global trade, new technology and the need to address climate change will affect shipowners preparing for transition to 2050 and the move to a zero emissions sector.

Stuart Neil, Communications Director at ICS says: “We are excited by the interest that our conference is attracting, recognising the importance of the topic to the future of the maritime sector. We already have a unique line up of truly influential speakers and we will be announcing additional high-level speakers shortly. Now to have such great support confirms that this is building to be a very important conference and I encourage those attending London International Shipping Week to register soon.”
