Karen Yates, Regional Sales Development Manager, said: “This was truly a spectacular event on our city’s waterfront and The Venue provided the perfect setting for guests of ACL to enjoy the celebrations after the Royal christening of Atlantic Sea.

“I would like to thank the attendees and ACL for choosing The Venue for their event and it is clear from the crowds who gathered to watch the christening of the vessel that there was a strong sentiment of the city’s shipping heritage and excitement for the future of the industry.”
