Live Event Coverage

One of the maritime sector’s leading award ceremonies, recognising individuals and organisations that have made a specific contribution to innovation in the Blue Economy. The awards were held in the International Maritime Museum in Hamburg and hosted by the BBC's Louise Minchin. I was hired to provide live, on-site social media coverage of the event for the European Commission’s 'EU Maritime & Fish' Facebook and Twitter accounts. I helped to get official hashtag of the event (#BlueAwards2016) trending on Twitter, receiving over 1.7 million impressions.
