Chris Morley, Seatrade Maritime Event Director, said: “The quality and scale of entries this year has been outstanding and it is truly encouraging that so many organisations have positive examples to share with our panel of judges despite continued market pressures.  With over 120 entries from across 20 countries, the judges have once again taken much time and great care in assessing the examples presented against the criteria of each category. I’d like to take this opportunity to thank our panel for the commitment they have given and their passion for shining a light on regional success.  We hope that, through the Seatrade Maritime Awards, we can continue to provide companies with a competitive differentiator.”

The Seatrade Maritime Awards will take place during the evening of Sunday 22nd September at the Madinat Jumeirah, Dubai, UAE, with winning companies being announced on the night.
