Thank you to all of the speakers, sponsors, delegates, media and industry partners and our exhibitors for your support and commitment in making the 10th biennial IHMA Congress such a fantastic success. Congress would not be possible without your collective support and your input is invaluable to us.
It was a fantastic 3 days of discussion, knowledge sharing and networking along with 3 fantastic functions to round out each day. A special mention has to go to Port of Vancouver for the excellent show they put on for us during the technical site tour, a perfect overall conclusion to the event. We hope that you enjoyed it as much as we did!
The quality and relevance of papers presented at Congress this year was extremely high and the skill and enthusiasm with which they were delivered was unparalleled. The overall theme for 2016 Congress was Port Expansion - The Challenges and the programme of papers certainly met the overall brief. The role of the Harbour Master, diversification, technological developments, social acceptance along with climate change and the environment were all strands that featured heavily and tied back to our main theme again and again throughout the three days of discussion.
