SME NM Awards

The National Maritime SME Awards 2023 will celebrate the outstanding and innovative achievements of small and medium enterprises across the UK maritime sector.

Held at the extraordinary RIBA London award-winning Woods Quay, a new building moored on the Thames; basking in the revered riverscape from Waterloo Bridge towards Westminster and beyond, during one of the most important international shipping and maritime events in the world, London International Shipping Week, the awards are dedicated to connecting small and medium business owners and leaders from across all maritime industries.

On the night, our ‘fire food’ dinner menu will be inspired by UK produce from the North Sea, Thames Estuary up to the source, and served as you circulate on the spacious Woods Quay decks, enjoying the evening’s networking event Maritime Connection and celebrate the UK’s top 20 National Maritime SME Award winners accompanied by great onboard entertainment.

The awards will also feature the exclusive Innovation Afloat Showcase, held from the 11th -14th September 2023. A flotilla of small craft moored at Woods Quay showcasing the latest innovative equipment, products and craftsmanship from boat builders and businesses who are working towards delivering a cleaner marine environment.

National Maritime is delighted to announce that nominations will be open for the 2023 SME Awards on the 1st of May 2023. 

Sponsorship packages for the most prestigious UK maritime SME event, are now also available.
