London International Shipping Week 2023 (LISW23) is delighted to welcome NorthStandard as the exclusive sponsor of the first ever LISW Daily Radio Show.
To be broadcast live from 7am to 8am Monday to Thursday during LISW23, the show will set the scene for each day during this important must-attend global maritime week.
Listeners will be able to enjoy interviews, features and commentary of key issues facing the global shipping industry. Industry leaders, politicians and decision makers in the global maritime sector will be invited to participate and give their views. It will offer visitors to London as well as those listening in online, an insight into the day’s events as well as a look back on the previous day’s highlights.
Llewellyn Bankes-Hughes, Director of Shipping Innovation and co-founder of LISW, said the radio show would connect news and views surrounding LISW23 with those attending the week in person as well as those tuning in online.
“The idea of the radio show is to keep all delegates attending LISW23, and those listening from overseas, fully up-to-date with events during the week. The show will feature special interviews with invited guests as well as magazine style features to get each LISW23 day off to the right start. It will also include market updates and weather reports. It will be available for live streaming to the in-person attendees and online visitors to LISW23.
“We couldn’t do this without the support of our sponsors, and we are delighted to be working with our friends at NorthStandard on this very important and exciting media platform. Listeners will be able to tune in via the LISW23 website or via links on social media, either live or catch up throughout each day. Further details about the links will be publicised in the next few weeks,” he said.
