Following intensive assessment and review, Mersey Maritime confirmed the finalists for the 2020 Mersey Maritime Industry Awards. A panel of thirteen leading industry judges came together to agree the list of 36 finalists which will shortly go out to a local, national and international industry wide platform to vote for the ultimate winner.
The first round of the process saw a record number of applicants giving the judging panel no easy task in determining the very best from more than one hundred submissions. Each award has three finalists for the twelve categories.
Quay Business Forum sponsors Haines Watts Chartered Accountants are delighted to be nominated as a finalist for the Maritime Professional Services award, as are Vigo IT Solutions Limited who were nominated for the Employer of the Year award.
Commenting, Chief Executive of Mersey Maritime, Chris Shirling-Rooke, said:
“Our awards continue to go from strength to strength and are rightly viewed as amongst the greatest maritime awards in the UK, championing regional strengths and celebrating the true diversity of our incredible industry. Once again our panel of judges were incredibly impressed by both the range and quality of the applications received. Selecting just thirty six finalists wasn’t easy!”
The winner of each category will be announced at the awards evening on Friday 6th March at St Georges Hall, Liverpool.
