The Institute of Chartered Shipbrokers Hong Kong branch organised the traditional annual "Christmas Cocktail Party and Certificate Presentation Ceremony" on 16th December 2017 at the Mariners' Club. Like every year the branch celebrated Christmas in a grand way and with much fanfare.
Members of the Institute in Hong Kong cover wide areas of the shipping and logistics industry. Members, guests, students and friends met each other in a friendly and enjoyable environment. Least to say, all had great fun.
Students who completed their Professional Qualifying Examinations (PQEs) were welcomed as members. Branch Chairman Mr. Joseph Chau FICS presided over the Certificate Presentation Ceremony.
The event wouldn't have been a great success without the sponsorship of Asian Marine Services (Gold sponsor), Sembcorp Marine (Gold sponsor), Caravel Group (Silver sponsor), MTG Dolphin Shipyard (Bronze sponsor) and Ordinary sponsors - Valles Steamships, Anglo Eastern Ship Management, Desan Shipyard, Dr. Helmut Sohmen, Gemak Shipyard, Adamar ship supplies, Hassei/Fairwind, Dan Marine group, Modern terminals, Turbojet group and Chugoku paints. These companies came forward handsomely and generously supported the event.
A live band, dance and piano & accordion performance had been arranged, they were highly appreciated by everyone participating.
Complimentary food and drinks were provided courtesy of the Branch.
