Entries Must Be Submitted No Later than Sept. 15
NORFOLK, Va. – Aug. 10, 2015 – (Marine NewsWire)There’s still time to submit entries for the 2015 SHIPPINGInsight Award. The judges are extending the deadline from Aug. 15 to Sept. 15 in order to give more time for companies to participate in the competition for this prestigious award.
The annual SHIPPINGInsight Award recognizes a ship operating company and its technology partners for a successful project that advances the state-of-the-art in ship and fleet optimization. A panel of independent judges will review entries and select the winner. The award will be presented at a gala luncheon Oct. 13 at the SHIPPINGInsight 2015 Fleet Optimization Conference & Exhibition in Stamford, Conn. The winners will receive a binnacled captain’s clock in a polished wooden case with an engraved plaque, along with a framed certificate.
Award submissions should be in the form of a case study. Projects must have been completed within calendar year 2014 or 2015. The entry may be submitted by either the fleet operator or its technology suppliers. Entry forms may be downloaded at www.shippinginsight.com/
“We are extending the deadline to give companies more time to prepare their entries, recognizing that the original deadline fell in the middle of annual vacations for many people, ” said SHIPPINGInsight co-director Jim Rhodes. “We are also waiving the $250 entry fee to encourage the widest possible participation in the award competition.”
Soccoli Associates LLC, a maritime consultancy, and Rhodes Communications, Inc., an international communications firm specializing in the maritime industry, are co-producers for the SHIPPINGInsight events. The SHIPPINGInsight 2015 Fleet Optimization Conference & Exhibition will take place Oct. 13-14 at the Stamford Marriott Hotel & Spa.
