Announcing the European Shipping Week 2015

Date: 17/09/2014

Ship owners and shipping industry leaders have joined forces with global event organiser Shipping Innovation to launch the inaugural European Shipping Week (ESW) to be held in Brussels in the early part of 2015.

The week-long series of high level events will centre on a major conference and Gala Dinner celebrating the 50th anniversary of the European Community Shipowners‟ Associations (ECSA). It will bring together the major players in the shipping industry with the primary aim of promoting the strengths and the importance of European and global shipping to legislators in Brussels such as the European Commission, European Parliament and the Council of Ministers.

The initiative, which was the brainchild of the European Community Shipowners‟ Associations (ECSA), will be run by a Steering Group made up of Europe‟s main shipping organisations as well as the European Commission and Shipping Innovation. The shipping organisations involved on the Steering Group include:
ECSA; Cruise Lines International Association (CLIA) Europe; European Community Association of Ship Brokers and Agents (ECASBA); Interferry; the European Dredging Association; the World Shipping Council, as well as the European Tugowners‟ Association. Other European shipping associations may also be invited to support the initiative and hold relevant events during the week.

ESW is organised by Shipping Innovation – a joint venture between Elaborate Communications and Petrospot and the driving force behind the highly successful London International Shipping Week (LISW). More details about the week-long line-up of events will be released in due course. An official website will be launched in the next few weeks.
