Regional Spotlight

Monday 9 September, 11:50 - 17:00

An afternoon event to showcase some of the UK’s leading maritime regions, their recent developments, plans and opportunities for investment and growth.

The UK is fortunate to have a number of strong maritime regions, which work together to make the UK a compelling choice as a maritime centre. From Scotland to the south coast, delegates will learn more about how clustering is being used to create a unique and attractive business environment amongst businesses large and small, academia and government. Delegates will also learn about the unique specialism of each region and hear of specific investment opportunities for those visiting the UK for LISW.

The event will feature the work of five regions with a series of presentations, debate and opportunities for questions that demonstrate the diversity and broad range of the UK’s maritime offer.
