MLE Organizers to Host Networking Day

Mersey Maritime Group and Shipping Innovation, organizers of this year’s Maritime, Logistics and Energy (MLE) event in Liverpool, are to hold a day of high level networking designed to galvanise interest among all interested parties ahead of the big event in June.

To be held on Thursday April 10, the networking day will kick off with the Mersey Maritime ‘IFB Hosts’ Event which will bring together all those businesses hosting events during the Maritime, Logistics and Energy (MLE) fortnight. This structured meeting will be held at the Mersey Maritime offices in Birkenhead from 8:30-10 a.m. and will enable good practice and information exchange among those behind the 35 events so far planned for the two weeks from June 9-20.

According to Chris Shirling-Rooke, Commercial Director at Mersey Maritime Group, this meeting will be an important opportunity for those actively involved in the MLE program to come together and share the same principles of collaboration, partnership and information exchange. He said, “Mersey Maritime and Shipping Innovation are coordinating 35 different events under the MLE thematic umbrella. This is very exciting for us all and with so much going on it’s the right time to stop, take a breath and bring together all our main event hosts to present the big picture and allow them to see how it all fits together.”

The day of networking then continues with an invitation-only event for key members of Mersey Maritime, to be held from 5:30-7:30 p.m. at the Restaurant Bar and Grill, which is located in Liverpool’s business district.

This is an opportunity for the Mersey Maritime and Shipping Innovation teams to chat informally with Mersey Maritime’s most valued members and update them on plans for the MLE program. It will also be an opportunity for high level members to network with each other.
