About The 2018 Mersey Maritime Awards
The 2018 awards will take place at Liverpool FC’s Anfield Stadium on March 8 and is sure to be an event worth attending for those in the industry or supporting the supply chain. As soon as the 2018 awards shortlist was issued, it was apparent that there was a diverse range of business activities and success stories within the industry. Like any industry, maritime has experienced change and challenges but it’s true to say it has staying power and the future is looking positive.
Stuart Chidley, Eldapoint Managing Director informed us, “Despite uncertainty around Brexit, the industry is showing its resilience and as a business at the forefront of supporting organisations with shipping container solutions, we are delighted to see this. We are looking forward to the awards event and would like to thank Mersey Maritime and the Sponsors, as well as all supporters and we wish everyone within our category every success.”
