Tug convention switches from Panama to Hamburg in 2014
The 2014 International Tug and Salvage Convention has been moved from Panama to Hamburg, Germany.
Panamanian presidential elections scheduled to take place in early May 2014,
the elections would directly affect the dates that had been selected for ITS. Panama
has only the one convention center and it will be used in its entirety for the
elections. Thus the convention center could not guarantee the dates convention
officials had been allocated.
very short notice, the convention will return to Hamburg after an absence of 35
years. ITS 2014, the 23rd International Tug, Salvage & OSV Convention and
Exhibition, will now take place at the CCH Congress Centrum in Hamburg from June
16–20, 2014. Updates will appear online at www.tugandosv.com.
