IBJ Awards at the Tower of London
(Posted on 01/04/16)
The IBJ Awards venue this year is the pavilion at one of the world’s most famous historic buildings.
The Tower of London has played a prominent role in English history and is the home of the Crown Jewels of England. It will provide a spectacular backdrop as the world’s maritime bulk industry gathers on 21st November for this year’s “Night of the Year”, a unique annual networking opportunity at a glittering gala occasion.
London itself is a leading global city with strong links to the worlds maritime community and the Tower of London – officially Her Majesty, Queen Elizabeth’s Royal Palace and Fortress of the Tower of London – is a historic castle located on the north bank of the River Thames.
It was founded in 1066 and the White Tower, was built by William the Conqueror in 1078. The castle was used as a prison from 1100 and, also as a grand palace early in its history, when it served as a royal residence. It became a place of execution along with the notorious Tower Hill to the north of the castle. It is cared for by the charity Historic Royal Palaces and is protected as a World Heritage Site.
