Europort 2021

2 A CHANGING (MARITIME) WORLD 2020 will be remembered as a year of disruption for people and society. The pandemic impact is massive and unprecedented. It transforms economies and social behaviour, regulations and business operations. Companies are forced to transform quickly or start new business models. This leads to creativity and innovation, accelerated digitalization, new products and services and restructuring of the playing field. The maritime world is no exception. Our rivers and seas are filled with challenges and opportunities. As a community of pragmatic people, we can face changes and turn them into chances. We invite you to be part of the journey of the maritime transition; to explore the power of technology and transparency. We invite you to engineer, build and maintain sustainable (relation)ships. TOGETHER, TODAY, TOMORROW. OUR VALUES Since many decades Europort has been the exhibition and meeting place where the international maritime industry gets together to connect, cooperate and innovate. Now, 80 years in the process, the need to meet face-to-face may be stronger than ever. We are convinced that, in this digital era, personal encounters are indispensable to our industry.
