Announcing the MLA College’s support of LISW23, Professor Basak Akdemir, CEO, said: “We are delighted to be part of the 10th Anniversary of LISW. MLA College has expanded its sustainable maritime offering greatly in recent years and we look forward to supporting LISW as one of the most important international shipping and maritime events in the world. Through being a silver sponsor, we intend to demonstrate that sustainability, and the progression of it within the industry, is not confined to technical innovations; it’s about people, education and knowledge.”
Professor John Chudley, Rector of MLA College, added: “In my various roles within education and training I have always valued attendance at London International Shipping Week. The realisation that people are at the heart of maritime and shipping helped MLA College to develop and commit to delivering outstanding flexible education and training.”
Sean Moloney, Director of Shipping Innovation, owners and managers of LISW, welcomed MLA as a first-time sponsor of the event: “Educating the next generation of mariners is crucial and MLA College is playing a vital role in achieving just that, particularly with its expanded sustainability offering. We are delighted that MLA will be taking part in LISW23,” he added.
