The finalists of the 2017 Mersey Maritime Industry Awards (MMIAs) have been announced.
The winners will be revealed at a black tie dinner that will have a Ministerial presence and promises to bring together the best of the maritime industry right across the maritime, logistics and energy spectrum in the region.
The MMIAs are organised by sector representative body Mersey Maritime and the awards recognise the excellence and diversity that exists across all sectors of the maritime industry in the North West.
Chris Shirling-Rooke, chief executive of Mersey Maritime, said: “The number and quality of entries for the 2017 MMIAs has risen for the third consecutive year, which will make for an exciting awards evening when the winners are announced on March 9 at Liverpool FC.
“The response from companies operating in the maritime and related industries here in the UK’s North West proves without doubt that ‘Liverpool is back’- the theme we have chosen for this year’s awards.“
