IMPA Gala Dinner – The Savoy Hotel


The 125-year-old Savoy is steeped in history. This iconic hotel reopened in 2010 after undergoing a £220m three-year refurbishment. To end of the event, IMPA hosted an annual gala dinner, which was this year held in the Lancaster Ballroom in The Savoy. The dinner was attended by VIP sponsors and some of the top shipping companies in the industry. Francois Marine’s representatives had the opportunity to invite the Shell team for a night of great networking and culinary experience. It was definitely a remarkable atmosphere, especially for our customers.
