"It was a fantastic opportunity to showcase our work as both a thought leader and a learning organisation."
Let me begin by congratulating everyone who hosted and attended the many brilliant conferences, panels and activities that made up London International Shipping Week (LISW) in September.
OCIMF’s own contribution was to host an OCIMF Day at the start of LISW, on Monday 11 September. Over 150 representatives from member companies, governments, the IMO, operators and other industry NGOs attended. I would like to thank the OCIMF team for all their hard work in making this day such a success – from those who presented on the day, to those who organised the logistics and registration desks. It was a fantastic opportunity to showcase our work as both a thought leader and a learning organisation.
Guest speakers included the Chief Executive of the Energy Institute, who shared his insights on energy transition and role of shipping, representatives of G+ talking about offshore renewables, Shell sharing its expertise on new emerging fuels and hydrogen, and INTERTANKO and Tsakos giving their perspective on SIRE 2.0.
OCIMF’s leadership team and the chairs of our principal committees were out and about throughout LISW, attending a range of industry events and seminars, from the UK government’s opening reception at Mansion House, to the LISW headline conference at the IMO.
As you can see from the number of reports in this month’s newsletter, this is set to be a busy autumn. I look forward to sharing our progress with you over the coming months.
