The European Commercial Marine Awards

ECM Awards Logo

2017 Sees the launch of the Seawork European Commercial Marine Awards which will take place in the fantastic Golden Arrow on site at Seawork. 

We are pleased to be launching this prestigious event on site this year which means guests can just meander to the spectacular waterfront glass restaurant which overlooks the Seawork Marina in Mayflower Park, and enjoy the awards, networking and some drinks and canapes. The awards evening has become an important part of the Seawork package, attracting more than 400 attendees including exhibitors and their guests.

The event allows attendees to focus on networking opportunities whilst still being a part of the exciting European Commercial Marine Awards, making it a 'must do' social event in the calendars of all Seawork exhibitors. 

The Awards

The awards will take place on the opening evening of Seawork, Tuesday 13 of June and begins with arrival drinks and the presentation of our coveted Innovation Showcase Awards sponsored by Lloyds Register, plus the ECM Maritime Professional of the Year, sponsored by G.G.T.C, the ECM Maritime Sustainability Award and the ECM Lifetime Achievement Award.

Canapes and wine which will be sponsored by Servogear and Scana Elmar, flow from 18.00 and the evening finishes at 20.00. We will be running our exhibitor coaches back to local hotels at 20:00 and the usual morning pick up will apply to ensure cars can be left behind if required

Innovation Showcase

The showcase of entries in the ECM Innovation Awards is located centrally in Hall 1. It provides visitors with the opportunity to see the latest in new products, services, projects and vessels introduced to the market by exhibitors in the past 12 months.

2016 winner DuoDrive’s Director, John Carter said, “Winning the Award at Seawork was the start of something incredible. As first time exhibitors we are utterly delighted with the industry’s response to this product that we have been working on for many years.”

The Innovation Showcase is open for submissions from both Seawork exhibitors (gratis), and non-exhibitors (£200 entry fee). If you would like to enter your product or service, please email
