Strong list of nominees expected for 2020 Lloyd’s List Greek Shipping Awards

Since 2004, the Lloyd’s List Greek Shipping Awards has been an unmissable event for the Greek shipping community and its partners. Our aim is to ensure that this year is no exception.

As we all grapple with the fallout from the coronavirus pandemic, Greek shipping has once again proved its adaptability and durability, continuing to play a major role in ensuring vital commodities and goods are transported by sea to their destinations. Many of the industry’s service partners have also risen to the challenges, innovating with new technologies or services that have enabled the country’s shipowners to operate globally with little or no interruption.

Maintaining high levels of efficiency, safety and service under these circumstances, while successfully protecting the health of employees ashore and at sea, is a remarkable achievement that the industry as a whole can take pride in.

Overcoming adversity in the coronavirus era is sure to be a theme running through this year’s Greek Shipping Awards.  We look forward to a particularly strong field of candidates that have demonstrated outstanding leadership in tackling the problems engendered by the pandemic, or else other types of meritorious achievement despite the pandemic.

We are now inviting entries for this year’s Awards. Out of a total of 18 Awards, 16 categories are open to public nominations.

We actively encourage individuals and organisations to propose themselves for Awards. Send us your story and the reasons why you or your company deserve recognition this year. Equally, we look to industry professionals to submit third-party nominations in support of others who merit recognition.

Once again, a prestigious, knowledgeable industry panel of judges will assess all nominations and have the responsibility of deciding the winners of this year’s Awards. The deadline for entries is Friday 16 October 2020.

We look forward to you joining us on Friday, December 4, 2020 for this year’s Greek Shipping Awards. This year’s event will be held in the safest and most appropriate way after taking into account all public health information and expert advice prevailing at that time. We look forward to updating you with further details of the event nearer the date.
