The two-day onboard ferry conference was first organized in 2003 and grows ever more popular by each year. Typically sold out two to three months ahead, it attracts between 450-500 delegates from more than 200 companies and 50-60 ferry operators from all over the world each year. To meet and discuss in combination with having a memorable and enjoyable time together with friends and colleagues in the industry is what the Shippax Ferry Conference is all about, while being on board a ferry ensures a familiar and close connection between all delegates. Many see it as the annual family meeting for the ferry industry, and we agree.

The conference is organized by the well renowned ferry publishing house Shippax and is held over two days onboard a ferry with professional speakers and experts, captivating debates and best possible networking and exhibitions. We offer a value for money policy with all events, meals, cabins and networking included in the price.

Welcome to the ferry family!
