Sydney Kicks of YP-Com Networking Calendar with Exciting Co-Hosted Event

PIANC Australia’s Young Professionals Commission (YP-Com) is pleased to announce its first networking sundowner of 2018, taking place at Helm Bar in Darling Harbour (Sydney) from 5:30pm on Thursday 8th March.

We are excited to be co-hosting the event with Young Shipping Australia (YSA), which is to Shipping Australia what YP-Com is to PIANC.  Shipping Australia is a shipping industry organisation serving to promote and advance the interests of shipowners and shipping agents in all matters of shipping policy, environmentally sustainable practices and safe ship operations.  Please refer to Shipping Australia’s website ( for more information about the organisation and its members.

YP-Com Chair, Rodney Hancock, had the following to say about the event: “Shipping and waterborne transport infrastructure go hand in hand, so co-hosting a sundowner with YSA makes a lot of sense.  It’s a great opportunity to connect with like-minded maritime industry professionals, which will hopefully yield mutual benefits.  The event also delivers on our objectives for 2018, which include expanding the YP network into areas we haven’t navigated before.”

PIANC would like to thank Shipping Australia – particularly Prema Bhautoo and Stephen Westfield – for their initiative and support with organising the event.  We hope the sundowner is a great success and look forward to hearing back afterwards to we can continue to provide value to our members.
