Join the European Ferry
Shipping Summit & Ports 2020

Amsterdam, May 27-28 DoubleTree by Hilton Amsterdam Centraal station

The European Ferry Shipping Summit is an established  and exciting ferry shipping conference concept that is committed to meeting the needs of today’s time pressured industry leaders. The event is being organised by a team of knowledgeable Ferry Industry Experts with many years of commercial and operational experience at executive level within the Ferry operating and ferry port industry.

It’s time for change.

This is our key message and theme for The European Ferry Shipping Summit. In this world, only one thing is constant and that is change. This theme has high resonance for the Ferry industry as the winds of economic, geopolitical and social change sweep across Europe with impacts for passenger and freight activities aboard and ashore.
If we do not change and develop we will fall behind and loose our business. Our goal is to deliver conference content that helps improve customer loyalty, profitability and sustainability.
