CPL-published joint venture between British government and Maritime UK wins Publication of the Year

A pamphlet designed by CPL for Maritime UK won ‘Publication of the Year’ at this year's Trade Association Forum (TAF) Best Practice Awards.

The ‘Open for Maritime Business’ pamphlet was designed to promote the UK as a place to do maritime business, and was launched in September 2013 as part of the first London International Shipping week. Jointly published with the British Government, the pamphlet is now being used by British Embassies around the world to promote the UK's ports and shipping facilities.


Maritime UK’s Jonathan Roberts, who project managed the pamphlet produced by CPL said: “This was a true collaboration between industry and government, and to receive recognition for our work is a great honour.  We know that the UK is an excellent place to do maritime business, and this work has been a great example of what we can achieve when industry and government are united.

"CPL’s work is consistently first rate and we cannot speak highly enough of them – I’m delighted that the work we have done together has been recognised in this way."

CPL managing director Mike Sewell said: "We have worked closely with Maritime UK and UK Chamber of Shipping for a number of years now and we're delighted that the judges were so impressed by the combination of great design – and clear, targeted content – in 'Open for Maritime Business'."

This year's TAF event was held in Liverpool to correspond with the International Festival of Business, also taking place in the city during the summer months.
