The International Harbour Masters’ Association (IHMA) has invited the Nautical Institute (NI) to become an official endorsing partner of the 12th biennial IHMA Congress that is being held in Hobart on the 23-26 March, 2020. The 2020 Congress is proudly co-hosted by Tasports and the Australian Maritime College (AMC) and will explore the theme, ‘The Next Wave – Navigating Towards the Digital Future’.

The prestigious IHMA Congress is held every two years and features a three-day conference & exhibition, a technical site tour and exciting networking and social program. The 2020 Papers’ Committee is developing a stimulating and thought provoking programme to explore and identify how ports and port operations, including Harbour Masters and port customers, will navigate the digital future.

In order to engage with and attract the next generation of industry leaders, the IHMA has introduced a new 50% discount for young professionals and will be launching the inaugural ‘Young Maritime Professionals Pitching Competition’ at the 2020 Congress. Both opportunities are available to all maritime professionals aged 35yrs and under across the sector.
