How passenger shipping is managed in the ports and regions it connects, has never felt more relevant. From the delivery of essential goods, to the safe coordination of cruise calls, the passenger shipping industry has shown its importance to the UK economy during the Covid pandemic.

In partnership with the British Ports Association, the UK Chamber of Shipping with be holding The Maritime Tourism Summit, which will seek to build on this vital contribution to the UK economy, by developing more sustainable relations between the many, stakeholders, ports, local authorities, tourist destinations, onward transport providers and national government.

The Summit will consider examples of best practice on how the sector promotes positive economic, social and environmental effects for the areas which the industry serves. It will consider practical measures improving mobility, identify stakeholders who can provide greater awareness of how passenger shipping is perceived, and emphasise the good work the industry already undertakes in delivering services which are sympathetic to the needs of the local communities.

We welcome you to the Martime Tourism Summit to connect passengers better.
