Earlier on this evening, at the magnificent surroundings of Trinity House in the heart of London’s Square Mile, which this year celebrates its 500th Anniversary, Bureau Veritas, one of the world’s leading Classifications Societies, once again invited us for the traditional Beaujolais Party; who wasn’t there! John Faraclas reports:

Over 300 guests from the entire spectrum of London’s shipping fraternity joined and celebrated in style, grasping the chance for intense networking, meet old and new friends and discussed with the hosts’ executives relevant issues of technical nature as well as the state of the market!

Philippe Donche-Gay, the Society’s Executive Vice President and head of Bureau Veritas’s Marine and Offshore division together with Yannis Calogeras, the Marine Chief Executive of Bureau Veritas in the United Kingdom, and  Philippe Boisson, the Communication Director and Legal Advisor, from the Marine Division Management, hosted this event, receiving once again, the support of the shipping industry’s key people like never before!

As in previous occasions, a great number of journalists attended, mingled with the hosts and guests exchanging views, and all together enjoying the exceptionally delicious dips, including traditional French cheese appropriately selected for the occasion, wine, as some…soft drinks.

Inspiring Confidence coupled with Leveraging Technologies the key to success!

Departing guests were given a bottle of Beaujolais Nouveau from the Louis TETE’s winery production, as well as interesting reports, news booklets and other gifts! Look forward hearing the tasters’ view! Santé!
