Maritime UK Week has been organised as an opportunity to shine a spotlight on the UK’s maritime sector, its role and future. It follows a period where the maritime sector’s role as the fundamental enabler of trade and critical freight supplies into the country were reasserted during the COVID-19 pandemic.
Maritime UK Week 2020 will feature a combination of virtual and physical events, taking place across the breadth of the sector and the length of the country, from Monday 12 October to Sunday 18 October.
The event programme includes a combination of industry events and public outreach activity. Industry events will include a focus on how the sector will recover from COVID-19, and how maritime can support recovery for the rest of the economy. Major themes will be how the sector gets to net-zero, builds its competitiveness and helps level-up all parts of the country.
Due to the evolving situation surrounding COIVD-19 and changing government guidelines, plans are subject to change, though alternatives will be offered in cases where physical engagement is not possible.
