The European Conference on the future of inland transport, terminals and ports

Host 2018: Port of Brussels

Port of Brussel celebrates its 25th anniversary. We thank the Port of Brussels for being our host in 2018. You are welcome to join them for lunch on a guided boat tour through the port on the second day of the conference.

Program European Conference

During this conference we will address the current and future challenges on hinterland connections in Europe. Main focus is the role of inland ports and hubs in connection with the sea ports and the transport modes inbetween. Moderator Alex Van Breedam, professor in Antwerp and CEO TRI-VIZOR, will also be moderating the 2018 edition. We are currently working on making you an excellent program with high level speakers.
