This year's convention features a newly designed program focused on how to get your business started again in 2021. The PVA Virtual Convention at MariTrends 2021 has been created for the passenger vessel industry, one of which has been strongly affected during the Covid-19 pandemic. To ensure the safety of our attendees, and to promote the best ability to meet, learn and network with as many people and businesses as possible we are offering our 2021 Annual Convention at MariTrends online.

Hear from the leaders in the passenger vessel industry and key government officials and representatives that are so important to your business.
