FAST (International Conference on Fast Sea Transportation) is the premier global conference for high performance ships and craft and is of great interest to all who are engaged in researching, designing, building, and operating them. The objective in FAST 2021 is to bring together experts from around the world to present/exchange knowledge and network around the most comprehensive and latest information available on high-performance vessels and their technology.
Now a SNAME event, FAST 2021 will be held 26-27 October 2021 in Providence, Rhode Island in the USA, ahead of the annual SNAME Maritime Convention. At this time and based on the current outlook for returning to live events post-COVID, FAST is being planned as an in-person, face-to-face event. Contingency plans are being made in the event we do not see the expected recovery and have to pivot to a virtual conference at a later date.
