Liverpool headquartered global company Bibby Line Group is hosting a series of events at this year’s International Festival For Business during the Maritime, Logistics and Energy thematic of the four-week program.
Being held at the Museum of Liverpool on June 12, the day includes two industry seminars tackling challenging current issues, followed by an invitation-only VIP reception.
From 3:30 - 6 p.m. delegates, including senior managers involved in the logistics industry, will discuss the most pressing issues in the supply chain and logistics industries and consider the various ways in which leading companies within the industry have overcome these challenges, both on a national and international stage. The seminar – entitled ‘Coopetition within the Supply Chain; are you making the most of it?’ – will conclude with a question and answer session with some of Europe’s most important supply chain leaders.
Meanwhile from 4 - 6 p.m., Bibby Line will be hosting a seminar called ‘Global Skills Shortage: changing the maritime and offshore industry’. Delegates attending the event will have the opportunity to listen to some of the industry’s most respected and influential thought leaders, and hear their views on how the industry can bridge the gap. The seminar is expected to be of particular interest to senior management and business leaders from the international maritime and offshore industry.
The day will conclude with an invitation-only VIP drinks reception where Bibby Line Group, official sponsors of the IFB’s MLE thematic, will welcome guests with ‘Fab Four’ cocktails in the museum, which overlooks Liverpool’s historic Pier Head area, renowned for its trio of buildings – the Royal Liver Building, the Cunard Building and the Port of Liverpool Building – which are collectively referred to as the Three Graces. These buildings are recognised as being the symbol of Maritime Liverpool and are regarded as contributing to one of the most impressive waterfronts in the world.
Sir Michael Bibby, Managing Director of Bibby Line Group, said: “We are proud to be hosting these events during this important and high profile business festival in Liverpool. It is a great opportunity to bring together our marine, logistics, offshore, wind farm, oil and gas businesses whilst also showing how our financial services and our other divisions can help support suppliers in these industries.”
