Sail Training International Conference 2024: Save the Date!

April 15, 2024

We are delighted to announce the location for The Sail Training International Conference 2024 – A Coruña, Spain!

This year’s conference will take place on Friday 22nd and Saturday 23rd November at the ExpoCoruna, a modern, spacious, purpose-built conference centre in the heart A Coruña’s bustling business district.

As the leading voice in sail training and Tall Ships, we are delighted to once more welcome delegates from around the world – including Tall Ship owners and operators, sail training providers, Host Port organisers of future events – to enjoy a programme full of informative sessions and invaluable networking opportunities.

What’s New in 2024?

As we continue to improve our conference programme and listen to your feedback, we are excited to bring a number of changes in 2024 which will help to make The Sail Training International Conference 2024 a ‘must-attend’ event for anyone looking to expand their professional networks, build long-lasting business relationships and engage with this vibrant and international audience.


We are delighted to bring back the Conference Opening Plenary Session which will take place on Friday morning at 9.00am before the conference programme of sessions starts


We are also changing the format of our Event Preview Sessions, which will become “The Tall Ships Races – The Place to do Business” sessions. Instead of the traditional format, this session will be more of a dynamic business session where the ports will be prepared to talk business with the ships in order to secure their participation. There will be separate sessions for The Tall Ships Races 2025 and The Tall Ships Races 2026.


The Speed Meetings will be replaced with a “Ships and Ports Networking” session – this will take place on Friday 22nd November at 18.00h. Delegates will need to register in advance and participants will be able to discuss business in a relaxed environment over a beer and snacks.
