Registration for The IMO Day of the Seafarer Event organised by the International Seafarers' Welfare and Assistance Network (ISWAN) is now open. This is a free event aimed at seafarers and their families and will be held in Manila, the Philippines, at the SMX Convention Centre. All seafarers and their families in Manila are invited to attend, but registration HERE is essential because places are restricted. With 2000 attendees expected, this will be a truly memorable day for those involved.
In line with the IMO's theme for Day of the Seafarer 2016 'At Sea For All', the ISWAN celebratory event will include a fantastic line up of activities including a family area with face painting, bouncing castle and story-telling; performances and stage shows; Zumba fitness and films; lunch for all attendees; exhibition stands from maritime organisations; prizes, giveaways and more. There will also be a Health and Wellbeing Zone, with medical professionals providing advice, free health checks, and health information. The event's Guest of Honour is IMO Secretary-General Mr Kitack Lim who will address the attendees.
There is a promotional leaflet for anyone who can help advertise the event to seafarers in Manila.
Seafarers can register for free at www.dayoftheseafarer.org. Places are expected to fill up fast so registrations should be made soon to avoid disappointment.
The event sponsors are the ITF, Wrist Ship Supply, AMOSUP, UK P&I, Inmarsat, ICS, IMEC, PSU, GASFI and Seafarer Asia.
