About The OMIS

The maritime sector (Shipping, Port, Offshore and ancillary enterprises) is of crucial importance to modern societies. Nevertheless, the public has a limited perception and appreciation of its influence and role as an essential element in social and economic development.

With several million people currently working in activities and companies directly and indirectly related to oceans and seas in Africa, the standout performers that have dedicated all in ensuring the growth of the sector deserve to be recognized and celebrated.

The OMIS is an annual event envisioned to recognize and celebrate the successes of such individuals and organizations.

The OMIS is more than just an award but aims to serve as a catalyst for the continued development of the maritime sector through recognizing the mostly silent but incredible work that is being done; to serve to celebrate innovations and achievements in the field as well as raise awareness and promote further improvements.
