Another London International Shipping Week has come and gone, and what a week it was.
We were fortunate to be able to welcome a small in-person audience for our events (with Covid measures in place), but the majority of our audience joined us virtually - from all over the world.
Supported by colleagues from the Maritime and Coastguard Agency, as well as various industry experts who participated in our panel sessions, we were able to drive some interesting and impactful discussions around maritime growth, innovation, and sustainability. Decarbonisation was certainly one of the hot topics of the week, with a lot of potential options for the sector raised.
If you weren't able to join us live during LISW, then don't worry, all of our sessions are now available to watch on-demand - so you can catch up with all the content at a time that's convenient for you.
