The 2016 ESPO Conference will look into ways to improve the efficiency of maritime transport and ports, this from different angles: How to remove the remaining barriers in maritime transport and how to come to a real internal market for maritime transport? How to set the digital agenda for ports? Big data: what is in for European ports? How can ports benefit from new trade agreements? Are there potential game stoppers?
We are delighted to welcome Mr Rifkin at our conference. This year’s ESPO conference will seek an answer to the central question: Are European ports moving fast enough? With such a conference theme, we are extremely lucky to have Mr Rifkin amongst us in Dublin, setting out his vision. It is without saying an additional reason to attend this 13th edition of the ESPO conference.
