Today marked the conclusion of the Canadian Ferry Operators Association (CFOA) annual AGM and Conference in St. John’s, NL.  The theme of CFOA 2013 was Innovative Approaches to Customer Relations, and the two-day conference featured presentations on enhancing customer relations, informative technical sessions as well as a trade show with exhibits from some of the world’s leading ferry sector suppliers.

“CFOA 2013 was an unqualified success,” said Serge Buy, CEO of CFOA. “In addition to providing an opportunity to connect with businesses and industry leaders from across the ferry sector, the conference allowed us to showcase the important economic contributions that our industry makes and demonstrate that further investments in our maritime transportation systems are necessary to keep this essential infrastructure safe and reliable.”

CFOA 2013 also featured the release of a report highlighting the socio-economic importance of the ferry sector in Canada, as well as addresses by the Hon. Paul Davis, Newfoundland and Labrador Minister of Transportation and Works, and the Hon. Rob Moore, Minister of State (Atlantic Canada Opportunities Agency).
