This is the key theme of the 26th Riviera Maritime Media International Towage and Salvage Convention, Exhibition and Awards (ITS 2022), a premier gathering of the international towage and salvage industry to be held in Istanbul, Turkey. Turkey, from September 28 to 30, 2022.
This year’s theme is maintaining safe, profitable and environmentally sustainable tug operations throughout the year and will be the subject of most of the technical papers and open discussions at the support conference.
The social calendar for ITS 2022 and the conference program are online and will continue to be updated over the coming weeks.
Attendees from around the world, covering the areas of regulatory, owner/operator, class, design, port, supply chain and services including brokerage, finance, legal, insurance, consulting and academia will be present.
The conference will assess these issues and highlight solutions designed to future-proof the entire industry supply chain.
Communications on our program will address our theme from the regulatory, design, operational, technical, commercial, market, financial and ESG angles.
Each article will be contextualized in one or more of the following segments: harbor tugs, escort tugs, deep sea tugs and salvage tugs.
A keynote presentation will kick off the conference and a roundup with key industry players will conclude the event. ITS 2022 includes an industry exhibition, gala dinner, awards, cocktails and other social events around Istanbul, one of the world’s leading maritime and shipbuilding hubs.
Everything will be done in an environmentally sustainable way to minimize our footprint, as tugboat owners are increasingly challenged to do. But as they know, nothing will affect safety.
