The Awards seek to recognize and award notable users of the Port of Mombasa and individual players are open to companies from across the breadth of the maritime sector, comprising the shipping, ports, services, engineering, and leisure marine industries with operations in Kenya, Uganda, Tanzania, Rwanda, Burundi, South Sudan, and the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC).
“We recognize that this is a unique year which has come with its myriad of challenges stemming from the corona virus pandemic, which has changed the way organizations operate. We have decided to extend the entry deadline to March 31st to give organizations ample time to submit their entries. We believe that even with the new entry deadline judges will still have enough time to conclude their work before the award date,” said Kenya Ports Authority head of marketing, Miariam Mwakundia.
Organized in partnerships with the Kenya Maritime Authority (KMA), Kenya Revenue Authority (KRA), Kenya Trade Network Agency (KenTrade), Shippers Council of Eastern Africa (SCEA) and East African Business Council (EABC), EAMA seeks to promote excellence in service delivery and adoption of best practices; appreciate exceptional contribution to the industry and regional economies; encourage innovation and healthy competition among regional industry players; and improve overall performance of the sector.
Winners will be unveiled at an award ceremony slated for May 21, 2021 in Mombasa, Kenya.
