Progress with the foil Ferry designed by Bieker Boats and Glosten will be among the topics on the FERRIES 2020 agenda.

Marine Log’s FERRIES 2020 event will be held virtually this year on November 9-10 from 1 to 4 p.m. EST. The conference will feature a number of expert speakers, a growing list of attendees, and several industry sponsors. Registration for this virtual event is free.

Topics include, but are not limited to:

  • Women in the Wheelhouse: Passenger Vessels
  • Technology: Ticketing and API-Coherence
  • SCR & DPF Emission Retrofit Systems for Ferries
  • Cybersecurity Demystification for Small Fleets
  • Can U.S. Ferry Operators Start to Take Advantage of Advances in Autonomy Now?
  • Grants for Passenger Ferries
  • The Glosten/Bieker Boats Foil Ferry: Ultra-Efficient & Low Wake
  • Establishing a New Normal Amid COVID-19
  • Current USCG Regulations Impacting Ferries and Passenger Vessel Operations
  • Progress with TxDOT Ferry

Now In its 33rd year, FERRIES 2020 comes on the heels of Marine Log’s successful virtual presentation TTB —Tugs, Towboats & Barges conference that took place in August. The event attracted nearly 350 participants —triple the attendance when it was Tugs & Barges. The event was held virtually due to the COVID-19 pandemic that is impacting most in-person conferences and tradeshows around the world.

Plans are for TTB 2021 to be held live at the Renaissance Mobile Riverview Plaza in Mobile, Ala., March 23 & 24 — and there are still some sponsorship opportunities and booth spaces available. The event date and location is subject to change as we continue to monitor the COVID-19 situation.
