Regardless of the ups and downs in the Shipping Business, regardless of the competition that we face from seafarers of other nationalities being employed at sea – Employment of the Indian Seafarer continues to be one of the top choices for Ship Owners/ Managers across the globe
This has not happened by ‘chance’!
It is time to congratulate the BEST within the Maritime Industry alike – for the efforts, innovation, perseverance & hard work that they put in, so as to ensure that the “Indian Seafarer” not only gets the BEST training, but also the BEST opportunities for employment & the BEST services at sea.
Every Crew Manager, Training Institute & Marine Service Provider will agree that the best appreciation which can be achieved in this line of business is to get recognized by none other, but the ‘SEAFARER’ him/herself & Service Providers be recognised by their clients
With the above fundamentals at the base, Offing has conceptualized the unique “Indian Maritime Choice Awards”, which we believe is aptly titled as “Voice of the Maritime Industry”
There is a total of 37 awards out of which 26 awards will be voted by Seafarers (9 for Crew Employers & 17 for Training Institutes ) and the remaining 11 will be voted by Ship Owners, Managers, EPC Contractors, Oil & Gas Companies and Training Institutes offline.
ONLY seafarers with a valid INDOS number will be allowed to vote for the category relevant to their profile (predominant type of vessels currently sailing on/ served). Winners will be decided by the total “Number of Votes”; verified by a “Voting Committee”
