The conference will bring together the views and exhibits of some of the leading exec- utives from the various sectors of

RoRo handling, shipping lines, ports, marine machinery and cargo equip- ment manufacturers. Some of the products and services that will be on display include: RoRo tractors and forklifts; skid safety items; cargo lashing gear; marine navigation equipment; RoRo ship and ferry designs; port layouts; marine ma-
