The ceremony was held on site at Seawork in the spectacular waterfront Golden Arrow Marine 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 Innovations Showcase Awards. The second part of the evening celebrated the European Commercial Marine Awards themselves, with the presentation of five awards.
This year the 2019 ECMAs also welcomed a new award from the Marine & Coastal Civil Engineering (M&CCE) Expo: the M&CCE Best Project Award.
