ATPI Griffinstone today (Thursday) announced a partnership with London International Shipping Week 2019 (LISW). The commitment to supporting this prestigious global seafaring event comes on World Maritime Day today, as specialist marine and energy division of the travel management and events business, the ATPI Group, reinforces its position as an integral part of the shipping community.
Led by the International Maritime Organisation (IMO), World Maritime Day 2018 celebrates 70 years of history with the theme ‘IMO 70: Our Heritage – Better Shipping for a Better Future’.

ATPI Griffinstone is excited to once again be part of this educational and thought-provoking week filled with inspirational talks by globally-renowned figureheads. We look forward to attending with our colleagues and partners next September.”
