The conferences took place from Nov. 3-7 at the Rhode Island Convention Center in Providence.

"As the president of SNAME and the host of the 2015 World Maritime Conference, I am pleased to report that all attendees experienced a program focused on sharing knowledge and developing relationships,” SNAME president Joe Comer said in a statement.

There were 170 sessions “presented by maritime professionals from around the world on a variety of topics,” Comer said. “Attendees were able to visit an international expo of over 100 exhibitors with many hands-on demonstrations, along with many fun events, culminating with SNAME's annual regatta racing J-22s out of the Newport Sailing Center on Narragansett Bay.���
