ICMS to host networking event and charitable reception at Seawork

June 6, 2023

We will be hosting a networking event and charitable drinks reception on the opening day of Seawork (13 June 2023) between 15.00 and 17.00. 

Managing Director of maritime civil engineering firm TILT, Ian Dobson is joining us on our stand (M6) at 15.30 to give a short presentation around adapting harbour infrastructure to meet the needs of future low carbon fuel supply. We’re inviting commercial maritime and marine trade professionals to join Ian on our stand and network with like-minded industry colleagues while enjoying a drink.

The event will also be shining a spotlight on the fundraising efforts of Mark Ashley-Miller though his Harbour Master Sailing Challenge. Supported by us, Mark is attempting to sail around the British Isles to meet every Harbour Master in the UK and Ireland, raising money for The Seafarers’ Charity as he goes.

Mark has raised over £20,000 for The Seafarers’ Charity, a non-profit organisation which supports those who work at sea, and their families. Attendees at the drinks reception will be given the opportunity to donate to this worthwhile cause via a specially created QR code on the stand.

“This year at Seawork, we want to engage with our industry colleagues on a more meaningful level and contribute to highlighting and finding a solution to safer crew access to boats used in ports and harbour operations,” says Jon Challis.

“And what better way to do this than encourage people to come together in an informal setting, which also offers people the opportunity to network and possibly discover previously unrecognised synergies.”

In addition, we’ll be showcasing our all-weather workboat and CTV berthing solutions for port, harbour, and offshore operations. These tailor-made solutions, designed by our highly experienced in-house team, provide safe water access for workers to get afloat all year round, day and night.

If you’re interested in joining the discussion on safer water access or learning more about improving or adapting your commercial berthing facilities, then visit us on stand M6 in the Marine Civils pavilion at Seawork (13-15 June 2023).
