Chamber Expo 2024 Business Lunch with Royal Navy Commodore Thomas Knowles

Date June 04, 2024 Location Mercure Hull Grange Park Hotel
Chamber Expo 2024 Business Lunch with Royal Navy Commodore Thomas Knowles

In an unsettled and increasingly dangerous world, the Chamber is proud to be supporting the Ministry of Defence and partnering with our Armed Forces at this year’s Chamber Expo and collaborating in a joint event.

Our keynote speaker for our Chamber Expo lunch will be Commodore Thomas Knowles from the Royal Navy who will talk about the Navy's role in keeping our shipping lanes open and defending the UK's interests at home and abroad, its work in helping to prevent the Houthi attacks on commercial and naval shipping in the Red Sea and maintaining our international trade and supply chains, which, as we have seen, affect business and lead to raw material shortages, price rises and inflation in the UK when they are interrupted by international conflicts.

Commodore Knowles will also talk about the Navy's wider role, in the Black Sea monitoring the war betweenUkraine and Russia, its humanitarian tasks in the Middle East, keeping shipping lanes open in the South China Sea, Britain's new aircraft carriers and how the Royal Navy Reserve fits into the bigger picture on the global stage.

You will also have a chance to ask questions at the end of what promises to be a fascinating insight into the modern role of the Royal Navy.

PLEASE NOTE: You MUST BOOK to reserve your place at our free Chamber Expo lunch.
