#FerryNews - A Louth based events company is riding on crest of a wave after being hand-picked to work in partnership with P&O Ferries on an exciting new venture.

As the Louth Leader reports the company First Media will be working alongside the ferry firm who will be offering an unique venue for events on board P&O’s very own Pride of Hull and Pride of Rotterdam ferries. The sisters Afloat adds are among the largest ferries operating out of the UK. They serve the North Sea service connecting Hull and the giant Dutch port.

Whether you’re looking for a place to host a corporate event, training day or meetings, First Media is all aboard to provide the event management, design, and technical support.

Freddie King, business development manager at First Media said: “This is a very exciting new venture for us and we are looking forward to working with the P&O team.

Afloat also adds that P&O operate a second route on the North Sea, Hull-Zeebrugge in Belgium. Last month the ferry firm commented that they are “always looking for new opportunities” of opening a new Scotland-Scandinavian service.

Currently the only ferry link (albeit freight-only) between the UK and Europe is from Rosyth, Scotland to Zeebrugge. This route is run by DFDS.
