The global association for the ferry industry, Interferry, has opened the call for speakers for its 47th Annual Conference.

Interferry is seeking proposals from industry leaders centred around the theme of ‘Customer Experience and Sustainability’. Taking part in Hobart, Australia, on 4-8 November, 2023, the conference will provide a forum for discussions between members of the global ferry industry and highlight new innovations.

“For speakers addressing the customer experience, we are looking for innovative approaches that both enhance the passenger experience throughout the customer journey and improve efficiency and revenue for operators,” said Mike Corrigan, CEO of Interferry. “In the area of sustainability, we will especially consider proposals demonstrating a decrease of the environmental impact throughout the entire lifecycle. In addition to emission reduction, we are also welcoming proposals addressing various types of vessel discharge, ship construction, maintenance, and refits, as well as onshore power and port practices.”

The association requests all interested parties to submit proposals that align with the programme’s theme until 30 May 2023 through the Interferry website. Selected speakers will then be notified by mid-July. Priority consideration for speaking slots will be given to Interferry members and conference sponsors, subject to the merits of their submissions.

“Today´s challenges require tangible actions, and we are happy to provide a global platform for discussions and information exchange so that the entire industry can learn and improve,” said Corrigan. “We believe that our industry is ‘Stronger Together’ when we work collectively to embrace opportunities, overcome challenges and share our knowledge. Our 47th Annual Interferry Conference on November 4-8 in Hobart, Tasmania, will once more gather industry leaders and visionaries from around the world who share our passion for ferry transportation.”
