Dear ISSA friends,

It is with great pleasure that we extend a hearty welcome to all our friends and colleagues to this year’s annual ISSA Convention and Trade Exhibition in the beautiful South Korean city of Busan.

This will be the 64th time ISSA has held Convention and the first to be held in the Korean Peninsula. In what will be another milestone in the history of ISSA Conventions, this year’s event also marks the first time that it is being jointly organized by two national associations, the Singapore Association of Ship Suppliers and Services (SASS) and the Korea Shipsuppliers & Services Association (KSSA).
Combining the illustrious experience of SASS in organizing successful conventions with the youthful energy of KSSA, we are looking forward to welcoming you all to what will be a strong and rewarding event.

This year’s Convention promises to deliver again with top quality networking, great speakers, a very well supported exhibition area where delegates can talk ship supply and relax as well as an opportunity to meet shipping industry representatives from this very exciting part of the world.

On behalf of the ISSA Executive Board, I would like to thank my colleagues at SASS and the KSSA for the hard work they have put in to make this year’s event one to remember.I would also like toexpress my sincere gratitude to all our members, sponsors and all those who have contributed in one way or another, to ISSA Busan 2019.

Myself and my colleagues look forward to meeting you all in November to celebrate yet another major port city where the ISSA flag flies high.
