Photos: First BC Shipping Industry Luncheon a hit

By BCShippingNews 24 October 2017
Regular luncheons planned to foster networking and discussion of issues

The inaugural BC Shipping Industry Luncheon was a great success with over 40 attendees meeting at the Terminal City Club to network and discuss issues relevant to their businesses. The informal gathering -- a result of discussions at the Vancouver International Maritime Centre's World Maritime Day session in late September -- was organized by Vancouver ShipInvest and Management's Haijun Yu and Bernie Jones who are to be congratulated for a successful launch of the initiative. "We hope that you all found it useful to meet some new people and, hopefully set up some networking opportunities," said Yu. "We welcome your suggestions about format, venue, etc. As we suggested yesterday, it would be interesting for one or two of the participants, to stand up and give a short presentation on some aspect of their business or maybe something that they hope to achieve. As we said, this is an 'open forum’ event, it is about creating a solid shipping community and opportunity to meet regularly and interact with members of our industry, with whom we might not otherwise connect." The next luncheon will be held on December 6 (Noon to 2:00 pm). Yu encouraged those who attended to help grow attendance by inviting colleagues, friends and visiting guests.
