Helen Stephen, Business Development Director, will be representing SMI who are organisers of the UK Pavilion and Group at the event. Joining SMI in the Pavilion are Rivertrace, market leaders of oil in water monitors for the maritime sector and Rab Microfluidics, who have developed cutting-edge microfluidic technology to solve oil analysis problems.
SMI will also be partnering with the UK Department of International Trade and the recently launched UK Shipping Concierge to deliver The UK Business Lounge – a support and meeting hub for maritime organisations who are looking to trade into and out of the UK. The Business Lounge also provides space for consulting, technology development and research specialists, BMT, CyberSHIP Lab and Ecomar Propulsion who will be showcasing their capabilities and expertise at the event.
During the afternoon of Monday 4th April, the UK Pavilion, along with associates from the British Embassy, will host a networking lunch visit from the Rt Hon Anne-Marie Trevelyan MP, Secretary of State for International Trade and President of the Board of Trade following her presentation at the Nor-Shipping Ocean Leadership Conference.
A further networking session is planned for Tuesday 5th April where we will be serving traditional ‘Elevenses’ and light refreshments from 11am. This event, a follow-up to the Cross-Border UK-Finland-Norway Maritime Decarbonisation Summit that was held last November, will provide a welcome, in-person opportunity for further collaboration and a continuation of important conversations concerning the global transition to clean shipping.
