Ferries Asia Summit
Propelling Regional Waterway Connectivity & Fleet-wide Operational Excellence
Ferry travel is in the limelight. The potential for driving tourism growth is immense – and for archipelago nations battling with urban congestion, ferry services pose a clean, efficient alternative in everyday public transport. But high-profile ferry accidents have brought ever greater attention to safety regulations for Asia’s maritime travel industry.
Amid these circumstances, how can vessel operators cope with ever-tightening safety requirements, while making the right decisions at the right time to capture rising demand? What are the smartest ways to improve service reliability and fleet quality, that maximize operating and capital spend? What are the industry’s best-practices for sustainable growth, and how can they be achieved?
Play your part! Join us at the Ferries Asia Summit 2017 to push forward the regional debate on making Asia’s ferry industry more progressive, safe, and commercially sustainable. Bringing together fast-ferry, RO-RO and ROPAX vessel owners along with international and domestic maritime regulators, classification agencies, shipbuilders and naval architects, this event connects the entire value chain for a meaningful holistic debate on ferry operations excellence in Asia.
WHAT’S ON THE AGENDA THIS YEAR?
Comprehensive debates on addressing the complexity of ferry safety in Asia: Is vessel age truly the greatest concern? How significant are other factors, and how can they be addressed?
Pathways to change through greater public-private collaboration
Contrasting viewpoints on the most effective ways to enhance operational stability & passenger management
Cost-efficient O&M strategies to extend vessel life & tips for stakeholder management to avoid purchasing mistakes
Integrating ferry business with tourism opportunities through strategic partnerships
Exciting formats including speed networking, panel discussions & a high-intensity fast-pitch ‘Shark Tank’!
