Seatrade Middle East Awards

The Club is delighted to announce that it has received The Marine Insurance Award at the annual Seatrade Middle East and Indian Subcontinent Awards. The Award recognises the Club's longstanding commitment to the region and the award-winning loss prevention initiatives the Club has undertaken in recent years. It is heartening that the Club should win such an award in its Centenary year and in the region from which the Club's first international Members hailed.

The award was presented by Richard Crump of Holman Fenwick Willan and received by the Chairman of Steamship Mutual (London), Mr. Mohammad Souri, with Rajeev Philip, SIMSL Director, all pictured above with Christopher Hayman, Chairman of Seatrade.

The awards, recognising maritime safety and the environment, ship and port operations and efficiency, security and financing, were presented at a gala dinner attended by around 600 senior executives of the region’s maritime and related industries at Al Johara Ballroom, Madinat Jumeirah, Dubai, on Thursday 8 October 2009. More than 60 companies and organisations were short-listed for the awards.

"These prestigious awards celebrate and reward excellence and innovation in the maritime sector across the region and are much anticipated throughout the industry," said Christopher Hayman, Chairman of Seatrade. For more than 20 years Seatrade has presented awards championing high standards and quality in shipping issues.
