Hamburg Hosts World’s Most Important Port Conference

This year’s IAPH World Ports Conference will be held in Hamburg. From June 1st – 5th, international representatives from business, politics and science will gather to debate changing demands of globalization and climate change.

The conference will focus on the smartPORT concept developed by the host of the conference, the Hamburg Port Authority (HPA). During the five-day conference delegates will get to hear about what Hamburg, Europe and the world mean by intelligent port management.

The conference will kick-start with a discussion about ship size development: among others, the panel will explore the challenges facing ports, terminals and shipmasters when it comes to handling mega carriers and whether there is a limit to a ship’s size.

Peter Hinchliffe, Secretary General of the International Chamber of Shipping, and Dr Christian Growitsch, Director of the Hamburg Institute of International Economics (HWWI), will introduce the topic by delivering a general overview of global economic developments.

The last day of the conference will focus on cruise shipping, port legislation and air quality in ports, presented in parallel sessions.
