All Day


If you are not familiar with the Fest format, now in its third year, it is an annual online only event hosted live by IIMS from Portchester, UK and starts at 06.00 UK London time. If you cannot or choose not to join live, there is an option to purchase the entire day’s content in video format to watch at your leisure.

Each hour on the hour for 12 hours, a new presentation is given by an expert in one area or another of cargo and commercial ship marine surveying. One modest fee of just £100 gives you access to the entire day’s schedule of presentations.

This year’s presentations include many that are being prepared from scratch for your benefit. Many are original and produced especially for Fest III. The final schedule with presentation timings will be unveiled soon, but here’s what we have lined up for you so far on Wednesday 2nd December 2020.
