About Seahorse Club

The Seahorse Club is a lively networking group; a forum for public relations, marketing, advertising and journalism professionals within the freight transport, shipping, and logistics sectors.

The Network was founded in 1963 with the main aim of providing a positive social and professional forum ‘promoting the promoters’ of sea travel. Since that date it has broadened its scope to embrace all other forms of transportation products, systems, and services. The common bond is that Seahorse members enjoy the industry and enjoy sharing their experiences with other members.

Whether you represent transport principals or promote an in-house service, the Seahorse Club provides an excellent opportunity to meet others with similar jobs and interests. We hold regular events designed to inform, entertain and create debate, drawing on the experiences of members, special industry guests and trade journalists; in particular these include The Christmas Party and Journalist Awards and the Summer Barbecue.
