Now in its 39th year, the PTA Annual Steamship Night has long been considered the “Networking Event of the Year” for the Bay Area’s ocean transportation industry.

    Mark your calendars for Thursday, September 20, 2018 at the San Francisco Marriott Marquis Hotel. The gala event attracts more than 550 industry professionals representing ocean carriers, terminal operators, railroads, NVO/3PLs, airfreight, port authorities, drayage providers, container and chassis leasing companies, and of course, the Bay Area's leading importers and exporters.

    A hosted cocktail reception, a three-course dinner, dancing, and a grand raffle prize drawing mark the evening’s festivities.

    In 2017, we enjoyed a record number of table sponsors. Thank you to those organizations for their generous support, especially the Port of Long Beach, PCC Logistics, the Port of San Francisco and Lahlouh.

    Table and sponsorship opportunities are available.

    Proceeds support our scholarship fund for cadets at the California Maritime Academy and local organizations assisting international seafarers.
