We strongly value privacy for our delegates and do not share or redistribute contact details to anyone.

We currently only offer payment by invoice. An invoice will be sent to you within a few days after registration, payment instructions are on the invoice.

No, not in the fullest, especially true if a speaker on forehand labels it as classified and not to be redistributed. Please respect this!

Short clips and photographing are allowed though, however, the condition for classified material is the same as above.

No. The badge and lanyard have been sponsored and we use a type that stays fixed and with texts for enhanced visible.

For consistency and transparency, we only offer one price without any hidden costs. The conference fee is for the entire trip, and it includes all events, meals, cabins, networking and gifts.

Latest Reviews

What do our delegates think

Every spring there is a desired moment of time for the ferry industry. That is the Shippax Ferry Conference. A high-level meeting place for ferry professionals. A place for sharing thoughts, exchanging experience and meeting friends. It is a well-organised event with a good and balanced programme of technical, operational and visionary matters, all including a social flavour.

Shippax is the annual key-event for us at Stena RoRo, which we have attended every year since its start. The fact that the major key players are well represented and that we all enjoy two days together onboard a ferry makes this conference special and attractive to us.

Per Westling

At Tallink Grupp we highly value the opportunity to come together at the Shippax Conference annually and discuss the challenges and opportunities our industry faces. The professional organisation of the event, interesting presentations and great company make it one of the top events of the year in our region.
