Dubai: The focus is very much on green transport options as Dubai hosts the 37th World Interferry conference and exhibition, an international event dedicated to breakthrough transport solutions which starts on Monday at the Grand Hyatt hotel.

The who’s who of the world’s marine transport industry will deliberate on the challenges facing the sector, the latest innovations, clean fuel options as well as best practices during the three-day event. The conference will conclude on October 24.

Being held for the first time in the region, the event will highlight Dubai’s impressive mass transit system with particular focus on the marine transport system which boasts a rich tradition.

Dubai’s unique landscape and an ever-growing coastline make it imperative for the Roads and Transport Authority (RTA) to adopt the latest in marine technology and the agency is not shying away from innovative solutions.

“Dubai’s unique landscape, with a creek at the heart of it and a 65-km shore from the border of Sharjah to Jebel Ali, makes it necessary to have a sound marine transport system that complements other modes. This conference will bring to focus our efforts so far and our future programmes,” said Eisa Al Dossari, CEO of RTA’s Public Transport Agency.

The conference will see 45 technical reports being presented by experts over three days with at least 500 delegates from 35 member countries of the Interferry group in attendance. More info
