Promoting & Connecting the Next Generation

Become a Sponsor

SPNL will be able to promote your company and services directly to professionals from leading companies involved in the maritime industry.

What does this mean to you:

  • Reduce time marketing products and services
  • Reduce advertising and marketing costs through having access directly to your target market
  • Increase presence through greater target market penetration and brand awareness
  • The facility to promote product offering directly to your target market
  • Specialist Networking events


London is regarded as the foremost financial centre having a world class maritime cluster. Globally professionals and potential customers alike use the internet as a resource to find local services, products and information. They also use the internet for social networking which is evident by the visits to our website, and the volume of activity on the SPNL Linkedin group. As the market trend is pointing towards online applications the strategy is for SPNL to act as hub – concentrated in one convenient place both virtual and with our regular networking events - for the shipping professionals based in London to interact and build a strong network.

SPNL shares the view of our Honourable Affiliate; the UK Chamber of Shipping that diversity of the maritime cluster is regarded as valuable and as strengthening the maritime fabric of the UK. SPNL facilitates the strengthening of an historically strong tradition of active trade, by offering an opportunity to involve all relevant parties.
