Atlantic Container Line (ACL) celebrated the newest addition to their fleet at The Venue, Royal Liver Building on Thursday 20th October.
Princess Anne gave her official blessing to the ‘Atlantic Sea’ and The Venue provided an amazing setting for this glamorous launch. Organisers felt The Venue’s location, coupled with its incredible panoramic views of the city’s historic waterfront which is steeped in maritime history, was the perfect space for this celebration.
Attendees included civic dignitaries and VIPs who enjoyed a five course meal accompanied by live music.
Karen Yates, Regional Sales Development Manager, said: “This was truly a spectacular event on our city’s waterfront and The Venue provided the perfect setting for guests of ACL to enjoy the celebrations after the Royal christening of Atlantic Sea.
I would like to thank the attendees and ACL for choosing The Venue for their event and it is clear from the crowds who gathered to watch the christening of the vessel that there was a strong sentiment of the city’s shipping heritage and excitement for the future of the industry.”
