IAPH World Ports Conference 2021 date announced

Wednesday 23 June - Friday 25 June 2021 | Antwerp, Belgium

The IAPH World Ports Conference 2021 will take place in Antwerp, Belgium on Wednesday 23 June - Friday 25 June.

"We’re excited to confirm that the IAPH World Ports Conference will be taking place in Antwerp in 2021,” said Patrick Verhoeven, IAPH Managing Director. The goal of the three-day event – for which the Port of Antwerp is the host sponsor – is to imagine and deliver a future where ports lead on the key topics of energy transition, data collaboration, reputation management, and business innovation. “The coronavirus pandemic has only delayed our visit to Antwerp,” Verhoeven said. “We look forward to bringing together leading ports, their customers and stakeholders, as well as regulators, in a world-class interactive event."

In anticipation for the 2021 event, a new ongoing series of webinars will launch in May, exploring the impact of the coronavirus on ports and supply chains. Brought to you by the team behind the IAPH World Ports Conference, this free webinar series begins with a summer series focused on the interconnected topics of adapting business models, improving ship-shore relations, and driving data sharing.
