The Port of London Authority (PLA) has announced Smart Pensions as a co-sponsor for the 2023 British Ports Association (BPA) 2023 conference.

The PLA conference provides a two-day forum for port members, associates, government officials, regulators, and representatives to engage in panel discussions, keynote speeches, and expert presentations.

Adam Tudor, Head of Business Development at Smart Pension, highlighted the firm’s cooperation with the maritime sector.

Tudor said:  “We are delighted to be partnering with the Port of London Authority to sponsor the British Ports Association’s annual conference. We continue to deliver all the benefits of our ground-breaking workplace pension, which include digital efficiency, our financial wellbeing offering and great customer experience for the maritime sector.

“This means a better value and experience for the sector’s members and efficiencies for employers in running their workplace pension scheme. We look forward to sharing more about our work in the sector in October.”

The BPA annual conference offers a collaborative environment for stakeholders to learn about the latest legislative changes and industry trends in the UK ports and harbours sector.

The two-day conference, held in London is claimed by BPA as one of the most prestigious events in the UK maritime industry and features a Thames cruise and an optional river tour to London Gateway.

As previously reported, the BPA, a group that represents UK ports, collaborates closely with various government security teams as well as the security section of the Department for Transport.
