Europort 2019 has added elements that it claims will ensure that this year’s edition of the biennial maritime and offshore gathering in Rotterdam is more thought-provoking than ever before.

The four-day conference and exhibition, to be staged between November 5-8th at the Rotterdam Ahoy Centre, will take place against a backdrop of revival across the specialised shipping markets for which Europort is renowned. Meanwhile, its ‘special ships, smart solutions’ theme for 2019 has inspired a series of new attractions that capture the zeitgeist of an industry which now accepts that smart people as well as smart technologies will be needed to shape the maritime and offshore sector’s digital future.

One of the most eagerly awaited additions to proceedings in 2019 will be the new Safety4Sea Europort Awards, which will highlight achievements in Smart, Green and Safe solutions and Career Excellence in shipping.

Europort 2019 is also introducing #YoungEuroport - a stream of events developed specifically so that younger industry participants use the opportunity to gain knowledge and expertise, and network with their peers.

Associated specialised industry conferences will cover The European Tugowners Association (ETA) Autumn conference, CEDA Dredging Days conference, the Royal Institution of Naval Architects (RINA) Maritime Industry 4.0 Conference, the 19th Mare Forum Ship Finance conference and the BLN Inland Shipping Conference on November 8th.

Educational Europort Masterclasses, will return, with one masterclass taking place on each of the exhibition days. This year the selected topics are: Naval innovations as a source of inspiration; Maritime solutions for offshore renewable energy; Optimising the efficiency of shorts sea operations; and Reducing the carbon footprint of ferries and cruise ships.
