International Sail Training & Tall Ships Conference 2019 Open For Registrations

July 18, 2019

Registrations are now open for the International Sail Training and Tall Ships Conference 2019, taking place in Antwerp, Belgium.

The conference will take place between Thursday 5-Saturday 7 of December and mark a first return for Sail Training International to Antwerp since the Tall Ships Races 2016. The Sail Training International Annual Conference is always a must attend event and is open to everyone involved in Sail Training for young people. Our attendees include vessel operators, sail training programme providers, future Tall Ships Races host port providers, bidding cities and host ports for future events and representatives from Sail Training International endorsed events.

ANTWERP (5-7 December 2019)

The beautiful Belgian city of Antwerp will play host to this year’s conference in the Flanders Meeting and Convention Centre, a brand new state-of-the-art convention centre. Located in the heart of the city, next to the Central Station, this will provide delegates with the chance to enjoy the best the city has to offer during their stay.

Antwerp is Belgium’s second-biggest city and boasts the biggest port area in Europe. Throughout your visit you can take advantage of culinary delights, museums, boutique shopping and much more. With the conference coinciding with the opening of Winter in Antwerp and the city’s famous Christmas market, we are sure this will be one of our best International Sail Training & Tall Ships Conferences yet.
