Welcome from Our Hosts | NMSA 2018 Annual Meeting
June 27 - 29, 2018 | Hilton Philadelphia at Penn's Landing | Philadelphia, PA
Since the late 17th to early 18th centuries, the Ports of the Delaware River and our Navy Yard have served their communities, the region, and our nation as an epicenter of maritime trade, commerce and defense. Whether acting as a gateway for goods and materials both foreign and domestic, or partnering with our military as one of the nation’s strategic military ports, our ports have grown and evolved into leaders for marine cargo handling of all kinds. At the core of this history and growth are the men and women who work day and night ensuring that vital cargo is shipped and received safely and efficiently. The Ports of the Delaware River Marine Trade Association welcome everyone to attend the National Maritime Safety Association’s 2018 Annual Meeting here in Philadelphia. We invite the maritime industry to gather together in the spirit of sharing and learning with the singular purpose of continuing to protect the safety and well-being of all those in the maritime industry.
