Worldwide there are approximately 3,000 merchant ports and the work of the Harbour Master can vary widely from country to country and from port to port even within the same country.
The biennial IHMA Congress enables members and non-members to update their knowledge, share their experiences and build their professional networks at an event that is themed to reflect current issues relevant to Harbour Masters within the maritime world. A 3-day conference presents a range of professional papers and is supported by an industry exhibition displaying equipment, services and technical developments from throughout the port and harbour sector.
Past congress papers are available in the members’ area and by application to the Secretary.
IHMA members benefit from discounted congress registration fees.

The decision to move this year’s TMS Tanker Conference to The Atlantis Dubai payed off in a big way, with a more than 90% increase the number of attendees in the ballroom. The one-day event, held on Tuesday 16th October, attracted over 220 delegates, a record-breaking number.
Trevor Pereira, managing director, explains, “We moved the Conference to The Atlantis to ensure not only that we could meet growing demand from the market, but also that the venue was really upmarket as is befitting for such an elite group of tanker industry professionals. The big rise in delegate numbers shows this was the right strategy, but also how topical and relevant the topics on the agenda were in taking the event to a whole new level.”
