The IMarEST is delighted to announce Lloyd’s Register, a global engineering, technical and business services organisation, and BAU Global, a network comprised of higher education institutions spread around the world, as Gold Sponsors of the 117th IMarEST Annual Dinner.
Bangladesh Marine Academy is our Bronze Sponsor for 2020, Bureau Veritas is our Supporting Partner, and GE Energy – Power Conversion, and L&R Midland are Supporting Sponsors of the dinner, which will take place on 20 March 2020 at Guildhall, London. The opportunity to take the Silver 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 118th President.
“Lloyd’s Register is delighted to continue its support of IMarEST and its Annual Dinner, an event that provides a great 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.” Nick Brown, Marine and Offshore Director, Lloyd’s Register
“As one of the largest providers of education in Europe, BAU Global is thrilled to continue our partnership with the IMarEST - an Institute that puts knowledge and professional advancement front and centre in the quest for safer and more sustainable oceans, and which upholds professional standards across the world. An embodiment of the Institute itself, this prestigious occasion brings together Marine professionals across all disciplines and provides the opportunity to meet, make contacts, and share ideas.” Dr Basak Akdemir, Chief Operating Officer, BAU Global
“The government-owned Bangladesh Marine Academy – having a partnering relation with WMU Sweden and recognized by UK MNTB, IMarEST & NI, EU EMSA and MPA Singapore – is tuned with 'developing world-class maritime leaders' and so ensures quality cadets' (nautical & engineering) entry into seafaring. Having a marine engineer (IMarEST Council Member) at its helm for over a decade, the Academy enjoys a spontaneous attachment with IMarEST and therefore has put forward its generous hands in sponsoring the 117th Annual Dinner”, Dr. Sajid Hussain CEng CMarEng FIMarEST, Commandant, Bangladesh Marine Academy.
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
