Join us in Gatineau, September 27-29, 2020, for the CFA 2020 Conference and Trade Show!

Disruptive Technologies and the Human Impact: Innovation Waves in the Ferry Industry

Artificial intelligence, robotics, automation – these were concepts that, until very recently, were the subject of science-fiction stories. However, these technologies are now becoming part of our everyday lives, including aboard ferries. At the conference we will explore the interaction between technologies and crews, as well as passengers, and examine the related challenges and opportunities.
