The programme took an in-depth look at Cruise and Commercial Operations; Safety and Security; Vessel Planning; Yard Planning; Roro Operations; Equipment Operations; Human Resource Management; Maintenance and Stowage.

Hosted in collaboration with PortMiami, the conference featured the largest delegation from the French West Indies, indicating the commitment of the CSA’s French members to bridging the language barrier and increasing their participation in CSA events. A total of 26 French representatives were in attendance. The 13th CSEC also saw the return of Dominica to the CSA’s mid-year conference.
