Mersey Maritime Exchange 23rd June

The Mersey Maritime Exchange will take place on Thursday 23rd June 2022, both online and in the magnificent surroundings of Liverpool Town Hall, a Grade-I-listed building in the heart of the city.

The conference is being organised by Mersey Maritime in partnership with Maritime UK and will discuss the progress of the UK Government’s Maritime 2050 report, which sets out the future of the sector over the next three decades.

The conference comes three-and-a-half years into Maritime 2050’s short-term recommendations and will feature a number of major announcements, keynote speeches, report launches, including attendance from senior Government officials and key industry representatives from across the sector.

Key note speeches and panel discussions will focus upon the themes of people and skills, innovation and technology, environment, competitiveness, and regional growth.

Maritime UK will publish its latest update report at the conference, describing progress over the past twelve months. There has been significant activity for the maritime sector over the past year, on freeports, the launch of the new National Shipbuilding Strategy, securing an extension to the Clean Maritime Demonstration Competition, a successful London International Shipping Week, major contributions to COP26, and at last October’s Budget and Spending Review, where the Chancellor announced reforms to Tonnage Tax. The conference will enable the sector to come together, discuss developments and crucially explore where focus is needed to accelerate progress toward the goal of becoming the world’s most competitive maritime centre by 2050.

Companies will hear about specific opportunities to get involved in key projects and initiatives as well as network with colleagues from across the breadth and depth of the UK’s maritime industries.
