Maritime London 89, a week of business activities focusing interna- tional attention on London's in- volvement in world shipping, will be held at the Barbican Center in the

City of London from April 17-21, 1989.

Seatrade also announced that it will sponsor three major annual in- dustry awards, for outstanding con- tributions to safety at sea, the fight against marine pollution, and the search for greater efficiency in ship operations. These three Seatrade

Awards, adjudicated by an interna- tional panel of judges, chaired by

C.P. Srivastava, secretary gener- al of the International Maritime Or- ganization (IMO), will be presented to the winners at a dinner in the

City of London's Guildhall on Mon- day, April 17. Over 600 senior people from all sectors of maritime- related business worldwide will gather for a reception and formal, black-tie dinner to honor the award winners.

One of the cornerstones of the

Maritime London 89 event, the Sea- trade Expoship London 89 exhibi- tion, which has been bringing buyers and sellers together since 1983, will take place over four days, from Tuesday, April 18 to Friday,

April 21, in all four halls of the Bar- bican Center. A new feature of the exhibition will be a series of on-site technical and financial seminars that are expected to attract a record attendance to the show. In the past, this major exhibition has attracted an international attendance of be- tween 6,000 to 10,000 industry per- sonnel.

Other features of the Maritime

London 89 week will include the

Money & Ships Conference, a major debate on important issues affecting the industry, to be held in the Bar- bican Center.
