About Conference 2017

Dear Ferry Shipping Friends,

Over the last fourteen years, the Ferry Shipping Conference onboard has established itself as probably the biggest and most important meeting place in the world for the ferry shipping industry.

BOOK NOW!!!!  To secure your participation 2017, the 15th Ferry Shipping Conference.

The idea to meet and discuss, in good as well as in challenging times, to have a new host, i.e. meeting on board different ships each year, seems to be appealing.
It is therefore with pride that we announce that the conference 2017 will take place onboard Grandi Navi Veloci's LA SUPERBA, sailing between Civitavecchia – Palermo – Civitavecchia, April 5-7, 2017.

The strength of this conference is the attendance of so many major ferry companies from all over Europe – and from other parts of the world.

The Conference concept

  • Commercial performance and related industry topics
  • Exciting industry speakers presenting valuable information
  • Interactive debate and conclusions
