The 2020 IHMA Congress to be held in Hobart on the 23-26 March 2020, will bring together IHMA members plus key decision-makers from the international maritime industry responsible for global port and marine operations at this leading port conference.

The biennial IHMA congress provides a unique forum in which formal Association meetings are combined with a conference and an exhibition – displaying equipment, services and technical developments relevant to the ports and harbour sector and providing both local and international sponsors and exhibitors with a unique marketing platform.
