“No award can be more prestigious for an Australian maritime professional than those awarded by the industry itself.”

The most prestigious night in the Australian maritime calendar, the DCN Australian Shipping & Maritime Industry Awards will take place in Melbourne in November 2024.

The 29th installment of the awards will play host to the who’s who of the Australian shipping and maritime industry, over 400 of whom will enjoy an evening of networking, a three course meal, drinks and of course the presentation of the awards.

Sponsoring an award allows you to position yourself as a champion of excellence and strengthen awareness of your brand by presenting an award to one of the industry’s finest achievers.
