|From water taxis in city harbors to fast vehicle ferries on the Great Lakes to military transport ships, opportunities in the U.S. high-speed craft and ferry market continue to grow.
On the commercial side, this growth has been spurred by hundreds of millions of dollars of investment in new ferries and terminals aimed at luring commuters out of their cars and off of our overtaxed highways.
On the military side, the U.S. Department of Defense is looking to bolster its ability to deliver troops, equipment and matériel with the addition of high-speed military transport ships such as INCAT's HSV-X1 Joint Venture and Austal's Westpac Express.
There's only one place that you'll be able to learn about and meet the key players in these two distinct markets and that's Marine Log's FERRIES 2004 conference & trade show. Scheduled for Nov. 8-10, 2004 at the Delray Beach Marriott in Delray Beach, Fla., Marine Log FERRIES 2004 conference & trade show will provide a valuable forum for high-speed vessel and ferry owners, operators, builders and suppliers to network and exchange ideas in an intimate setting.
