2014 Winners Announced
Only hours before the celebration dinner, an independent judging panel of maritime industry leading figures selected the winners for the 26th Seatrade Awards, held this year at the London’s Guildhall on the 14 April. The judging panel was chaired by the IMO Secretary-General, Koji Sekimizu.
The awards are one of the most respected global maritime recognition schemes and this year they were hosted by International journalist and broadcaster, Justin Webb, in the presence of Her Royal Highness The Princess Royal, together with 400 industry leaders and professionals from around the world.
“Over the last 27 years, Seatrade Awards have been supported by successive IMO Secretary General’s - C P Srivastava, William O’Neil, Efthimios Mitropoulos and myself. This is an important mechanism for the shipping industry and also for the International Maritime Organization. The vision is to raise the profile of international shipping and over that time we have seen significant encouragement and as far as the IMO is concerned, while I am Secretary General, we will continue to support this very important activity”
Koji Sekimizu, Secretary-General, International Maritime Organization (IMO)
