London International Shipping Week

London International Shipping Week – Propelling World Trade’ is a new and important industry event focusing on London’s vital role in the positive development of global shipping.

With a wealth of industry functions taking place during the week, London International Shipping Week is the high level networking opportunity of the year for leaders across all sectors of the international shipping industry – regulators, charterers, ship owners, ship managers, lawyers, brokers, bankers, insurers, ship suppliers, ports and shipping service providers and all involved in the shipping world.

The UK is the leading centre worldwide in the supply of a broad range of professional and business services to the international maritime community, accounting for 21% of premiums in international marine insurance, over $64bn in committed ship finance (or 15% of the world loan book) and it has the largest concentration of legal service firms specialising in the sector.

London is also the predominant supplier of shipbroking services worldwide and is the major player when it comes to maritime dispute resolution. London continues to be a major port and trading hub too. 

London International Shipping Week is organised by Shipping Innovation – a joint venture between Elaborate Communications and Petrospot – in association with Maritime UK partners The Baltic Exchange, Maritime London, and the UK Chamber of Shipping, and with TheCityUK, the independent promotional body for UK financial and professional services.
