Planning is now underway in earnest for what promises to be an ITS Convention and Exhibition to remember. We are excited to have the opportunity to bring together the world’s tug, towage and salvage experts and grateful for the continuing support of the event’s loyal exhibitors and sponsors.
Riviera is delighted to have acquired this highly regarded event from the administrators of The ABR Company in December 2020 and our aim is to continue to provide the tug, towage and salvage community with the same quality of event it clearly values.
2020 was a challenging year for the entire world. The pandemic reduced trade severely, reducing the need for tug operations significantly, restricting crew mobility and limited third-party suppliers. It challenged owners to be more innovative in how they both operate their services and maintain their fleet. But these restrictions are easing as vaccines are rolled out worldwide and trade levels return.
After every downturn there follows an upturn. How the tug industry reacts to an increase again will be up to the industry’s key players. One thing is for sure, the race to operate with zero emissions will not let up and the race to automate port and tug operations is accelerating. New business opportunities will be on offer and new ways of doing business required.
Our conference programme will be constructed in close consultation with the key Tug, Pilot, Workboat and Salvage associations globally who conduct so much good work for their members and a select group of designers, owners and we look forward to sharing details of this in due course.
The convention will have taken place four years prior to this event. There will be many new faces to see, many new hands to shake, many new deals to discuss.
ITS is a much-anticipated conference and exhibition, firmly established as a must-attend event in the industry’s calendar. We hope to welcome you and make some new friends along the way.
Further announcements follow in due course.
