Over 52 years of HISWA Symposium

Welcome to the 26th HISWA International Symposium on Yacht Design and Yacht Construction..

The HISWA Symposium has started in 1968 and is one of the world’s most appreciated symposiums in the area of yacht building and yacht construction in relation to the scientific developments in this field. It is bi-annually organised by HISWARECRON Association, Delft University of Technology and RAI Amsterdam, organizer of METSTRADE, the Marine Equipment Trade Show held annually in Amsterdam. The detailed programme for 2020 will be published by the end of May 2020. We hope to meet you again in Amsterdam!

NB:  We appreciate that with regular news stories and updates about COVID-19 Coronavirus, there might be questions from (potential) delegates. We are in close contact with the organisers of the METSTRADE and we follow their advice and measures.

More information can be found on the METSTRADE website.
