The IMarEST is delighted to announce Lloyd’s Register, a global engineering, technical and business services organisation, as Gold Sponsor of the 115th IMarEST Annual Dinner and Harris Pye, a marine and offshore engineering group, as the Silver Sponsor. Bureau Veritas, Bangladesh Marine Academy and MLA College are Supporting Sponsors of the dinner, which will take place on 16 March 2018 at Guildhall, London. The opportunity to take the Bronze Sponsor position is still available, as are additional Supporting Sponsor opportunities.
The Annual Dinner is the Institute's flagship event and brings together over 400 industry leaders and marine professionals from across the sector. As such, it is a highly anticipated occasion for members and guests to see old friends and colleagues and to make new connections. The evening will be hosted by the IMarEST’s 116th President.
“Lloyd’s Register is delighted in 2018, ‘The UK Year of Engineering’ to continue our support of IMarEST and their Annual Dinner, an event that provides the perfect platform to network with key stakeholders within our industry. IMarEST does incredibly valuable work in promoting marine engineering, science and technology, providing opportunities for the exchange of ideas and enabling the development of marine professionals worldwide. In 2018, we should all do our part to shine a light on our profession and encourage young people to consider it as an exciting career choice.” Nick Brown, Marine and Offshore Director, Lloyd’s Register.
“We greatly value our relationship with IMarEST and our role as a Marine Partner, and are delighted to once again be Silver Sponsor for the IMarEST Annual Dinner. We look forward to an enjoyable evening and its marvellous networking opportunities. Talented staff at every level lie at the heart of our success, and have earned our UK company Gold Investors in People status. Our Trainee Development Programme, for graduates and technicians, is IMarEST accredited. Our ‘home grown’ talent gains serious benefit from use of the Institute’s extensive technical library and takes advantage of all that IMarEST offers.” Mark Prendergast, Chief Executive Officer, Harris Pye.
Sponsorship of the IMarEST Annual Dinner is a way for companies to promote themselves, not only through the marketing around the event but also through establishing and developing rapport with customers and prospects. Organisations will have access to a highly targeted and relevant audience that can introduce them to their own extended network of marine industry contacts.
'The IMarEST is a leading technical forum and membership body promoting and protecting the core technical expertise in our industry. The annual dinner is a key date in our calendar and we are looking forward to supporting the event again this year.' Yannis Calogeras, UK & Ireland Marine Chief Executive, Bureau Veritas
“The government-owned Bangladesh Marine Academy – a WMU Sweden Branch and recognized by EU’s EMSA & MPA Singapore – is tuned with developing world-class maritime leaders and so ensuring quality cadets' (nautical & engineering) entry into seafaring. Having a marine engineer at its helm for over two decades, the Academy enjoys a natural attachment with IMarEST and therefore has put forward its generous hands in sponsoring the 115th Annual Dinner”, Sajid Hussain, Commandant, Bangladesh Marine Academy.
“As an education institution within the marine and maritime sector, we are once again delighted to be sponsoring the annual dinner. MLA College strongly aligns with the IMarEST’s vision for safer and more sustainable oceans, and its place within the industry as a provider of learning and professional development”. Richard Thain, Chief Executive, MLA College.
