The Ferry Shipping Conference

Welcome to the official site for the annual Ferry Shipping conference.

Over the years, the annual 2-day springtime onboard conference has established itself as probably the biggest and most important meeting place in the world for the Ferry Shipping Industry, with up to 400 ferry shipping executives. Seminars by renowned industry speakers cover relevant, current issues followed by interactive debate. Networking in a relaxed atmosphere. Onboard exhibitors. The conference was first held 2003. Founded and organized by Shippax and BOLT Consulting.

The Ferry Shipping Conference 2017

The idea is to have a new host, i.e. meeting on board a different ship each year.

Therefore we are proud to announce that in 2017 the 15th Ferry Shipping Conference will take place on board Grandi Navi Veloci's LA SUPREMA, sailing between Civitavecchia – Palermo – Civitavecchia, April 5-7, 2017.
Based on the fantastic response to this event, delegates are booking earlier each year. 375-400 delegates, including 40-50 ferry companies from all over the world, have been attending the conference over the years, to meet and discuss, in good as well as in challenging times.
