The finalists of the 2016 Mersey Maritime Industry Awards (MMIAs) have been announced.

The winners will be announced at a prestigious 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, CEO of Mersey Maritime, said: “The response to our awards in this, our second year, has been phenomenal. It bears out our belief that there is room in the market for an awards event that recognises excellence in the maritime and related industries across the North West. We’ve had almost 60% more entries than in 2015 and when we opened up table sales in December for the awards dinner we sold out overnight.”
