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.
