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.
