Ports in Europe and around the world are pivotal to the supply chain for project cargo moving into and out of the continent. In fact, the majority of cargoes (63%) were transported to or from ports outside the EU, making maritime transport the most important mode for long distance transport of goods to or from the EU.

That’s why we want to showcase all of the exhibiting ports, terminals and related service providers located in Europe and beyond. This year’s event promises to be the biggest so far—record number of exhibitors and a higher than ever number of attendees. Stand above the crowd, dive in and be a Port Star.
