Our Annual Stakeholder Forum will be held at IET London, Savoy Place, on Monday, 13 May 2019.

Hosted by PLA chairman, Christopher Rodrigues CBE, the Forum is our equivalent to an annual general meeting.  It is open to anyone who wishes to attend and provides you with an opportunity to hear about developments on the Thames and progress with the Thames Vision over the last year.

Last year saw activity in the port increase again, while our pilotage service performance improved markedly, following substantial and continued investment.  We also launched our Investment Plan, which in line with the Vision, is focused on projects that sustain trade on the Thames, support sport, recreation and improvements to the environment.

Chief executive, Robin Mortimer, chief harbour master, Bob Baker and chief financial officer, Julie Tankard will give a series of short presentations at the start of the Forum touching on the main developments in the year and looking to prospects for the future.  Following the presentations there will be a question and answer session chaired by Christopher Rodrigues.  Members of the PLA Board and senior management team will be on hand to answer any questions then, or afterwards, to catch up over refreshments.

Detailed arrangements for the Forum are as follows:

  • Date: Monday, 13 May 2019
