We’re excited to announce that the theme for the Hobart Speakers Program is “The Future is Ferries”.

It has become more obvious than ever that the ferry industry’s future has never been brighter and, in fact, we are the solution to much of the world’s environmental, economic and logistic challenges. This a bold statement to make, but we believe it to be true.

We are leading the shipping world into the 4th propulsion revolution of zero emissions – through the use of hybrid technologies, batteries and hydrogen. We have the expertise and desire to assist the developing world reach its socioeconomic potential by helping it build and operate safer and more reliable water transportation systems. We can de-clog the highways and motorways of many of the world’s most congested areas by expanding the use of our short sea shipping services.

We encourage those of you wishing to submit a presentation proposal for the Hobart Speakers Program to start thinking about how your specific product or service fits into the overall theme. We will be looking for abstracts in a multitude of areas – attracting/recruiting future mariners, serving/targeting the customer of tomorrow (tourist, commuter, discretionary travel), ferry safety and safety systems, zero emission technologies and other environmental solutions for a cleaner tomorrow.
