After extensive discussion and careful consideration regarding the COVID-19 global pandemic, Interferry has made the difficult but inevitable decision to cancel its annual conference in 2020 , which was due to take place in October in Hobart, Tasmania, Australia. Spirit of Tasmania has now been rescheduled to host the 2023 conference in Hobart. While the cancellation – the first in our long history – is undoubtedly extremely disappointing news for everyone, we know it is the right and responsible choice as the worldwide ferry industry, together with the communities it serves, navigates the uncharted and uncertain outcomes of the pandemic.

Looking forward to better times, we are turning our attention to the 45th annual Interferry Conference that will be held in Santander, Spain, from October 2–6, 2021.
