Stunning launch reception augurs well for a record-breaking LISW23 in September


It is full steam ahead for LISW23 following last night’s sparkling Launch Reception at the impressive office of Norton Rose Fulbright (NRF), overlooking the London skyline. Over 200 guests – including the UK’s Maritime Minister, top Government officials, industry leaders, Sponsors, Supporting Organisations, and the press – celebrated the launch of the 10th Anniversary of LISW, indicating that September’s event should break all attendance records.

Simon Hartley, Senior Partner of NRF, Denis Petropoulos, Chair of the LISW23 Board of Advisors, and Baroness Vere of Norbiton, the UK’s Maritime Minister, made enthusiastically positive speeches, but the evening was stolen by a hugely appreciated pre-recorded video by Dr Nikolas Tsakos, President and CEO of the Tsakos Group and sponsor of the LISW23 Headline Conference at the International Maritime Organization, who battled against the windy Greek weather to express his passion for LISW.

With an anticipated 400+ individual events run by over 100 Sponsors and more than 100 Supporting Organisations – as well as charities and Government departments – LISW23 is already well on course to be by far the biggest and most popular in its 10-year history.
