Polaris has returned from Poland where, after being appointed by Gdynia Development Agency, we helped promote one of Poland’s biggest maritime conferences, the Maritime Economy Forum Gdynia.
Polaris’ brief is to help raise awareness in international maritime press, much of which is written in English and produced in the UK. We were also pleased to organise for journalists Alan Thorpe of Ship Repair Journal and Ines Nastali of Dredging and Ports to attend the event with both titles reaching an international audience.
Polaris’ managing director Ben Pinnington said:
“It is a great honour to be working with the City of Gdynia and Maritime Economy Forum Gdynia 2019,” he said. “The event was very insightful and we had some strong headlines to report from the event including a huge expansion in Poland’s offshore wind sector and the biggest ever programme of investments in the Port of Gdynia. The Polish maritime industry is flourishing employing 112,000 people and generating €9billion euros for the economy. It is a great time to focus on the Polish maritime sector as one of the key markets in Europe and the world.”
Ben said Polaris has developed links with Poland since 2011.
“We have worked for a range of Polish maritime businesses over the last few years including Intermarine in Gdynia and Baltec in Gdansk,” he said. “We know how to help Polish maritime companies, raise awareness in the English language maritime press which is read worldwide and presents a brilliant platform for communication. We have also worked closely with them helping with business development in the UK.”
Ben said Polaris was also pleased to meet new and old friends at the annual maritime forum golf tournament at Sierra Golf Club outside Gdynia as well as attend the famous duck dinner which attracts 2000 guests from the maritime industry.
Elsewhere in September Polaris helped to promote one of the biggest maritime stories of the year with the royal ship naming of the RRS Sir David Attenborough polar ship at Polaris’ client Cammell Laird by the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge. Polaris has provided a range of services to the three year shipbuilding project including media management, social media, speech writing, brochure design, film, photography and drone.
