The European Commercial Marine Awards
The European Commercial Marine Awards (ECMAs), incorporating the Innovations Showcase that attracts entries from across Europe, recognises the depth of excellence in commercial marine and celebrates the outstanding individuals and innovative companies that comprise this vibrant and productive industry sector.
The awards took place on the opening evening of Seawork - Tuesday 3 July from 17:30-20:00.
The ceremony was held on site at Seawork in the spectacular waterfront glass restaurant, overlooking the Seawork Marina in Mayflower Park. Following welcoming drinks and canapes, the first part of the evening saw the presentation of the coveted Innovation Showcase Awards with the overall winner being presented with the Spirit of Innovation award.
The second part of the evening moved to the European Commercial Marine Awards themselves with the presentation of the five awards.
