London International Shipping Week 2017 begins with the opening of London Stock Exchange

 

The UK government, together with the industry, on September 11, 2017 launched what will be the biggest London International Shipping Week yet, by opening trading on the London Stock Exchange (LSE).

 

Flanked by government Ministers, dignitaries as well as leaders from global shipping, Mr Nikos Gazelidis, Global Head of Shipping Sales for ATPI Griffinstone, and the Rt Hon John Hayes CBE, MP, Minister of State for Transport, performed the market opening ceremony.

 

Mr Jeremy Penn, Chairman of the London International Shipping Week 2017 Steering Group, said the opening of the LSE was a fitting way to launch this year’s LISW.

 

"London International Shipping Week 2017 (LISW17) has exceeded all our expectations in terms of size and international reach, so much so that we are looking forward this week to welcoming thousands of leaders from the global shipping industry into what is widely acknowledged as the number one maritime financial services capital of the world," he said.

 

Taking place from September 11 to 15, LISW17 is expected to see more than 150 industry functions and unique networking opportunities, said a release.
