HSBO Forum Postponed to SEPT 2021

Due to the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic and government regulations and public health directives, HSBO, High Speed Boat Operations Forum has been postponed. 

The next edition of HSBO Forum will take place in September 2021

The decision has been made in an effort to ensure the health and safety of HSBO delegates, exhibitors and speakers, while the trajectory of the pandemic remains unclear. 

Except for the change of dates, the event will run as normal in Gothenburg, Sweden, with scientific and technical presentations, full speed boat trials and networking sessions.

The HSBO Forum 

is a by-invitation-only conference gathering High Speed Boat professionals from around the world. Highly competent experts will give presentations on new development, research, technologies, operational procedures, boat designs and equipment. Many of the best boats built for professional use will be available for full speed sea trials at open sea.
