ITS Convention and Exhibition 2022

09:00 - 18:00
Date and venue TBC

Same ITS Convention values with a few new ideas

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 was able to rescue 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.

 

Time is against us, there is much to do in the next 15 months but with the support and guidance of the tug community we will deliver what’s expected of us with a few fresh ideas too.

 

2020 was a challenging year for the entire world. The pandemic has 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 will ease as vaccines are rolled out worldwide and trade levels will 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.

The world’s largest gathering of Tug, Towage and Salvage experts

The ITS Convention and Exhibition started life as the International Tug Conference in 1969. At the 10th Conference in Sydney 1988, salvage was introduced into the programme for the first time, and the conference was renamed the International Tug and Salvage Convention and Exhibition.

 

The event, held every two years in a different location, is the world’s largest gathering of tug, towage, and salvage experts. Over the past 50 years, the convention has earned an enviable reputation for being the best of its kind. It attracts the most senior executives in the business, affording them a unique opportunity to meet, learn and discuss projects or contracts.

 

The convention has grown significantly and now attracts more than 1000 atendees and 100 exhibitors.

 

Since 1969, over 8,000 delegates and 1,200 exhibitors from 50 countries have taken part in the conventions.

 

"I realised that my entire career and the international success of our business have been inextricably linked with these conferences. Through them we have met the majority of our international clients, have been given the platform from which to draw attention to the important unique design developments initiated by this office, and been able to share ideas about the future of tug design and operations with a worldwide audience"
