The Baltic Ports Conference (BPC) is the most important annual event for the organization, as all BPO members, other participants and guests join together to discuss the key and urgent issues for the port business. It is first and foremost a great networking platform for the exchange of knowledge and experiences between various stakeholders making up the maritime community in the Baltic Sea region and beyond.
This year’s event will offer the participants an in-depth view into the current trends driving the global economy and its impact on the port market and help answer the question behind the main factors defining a smart port. It will also take a closer look at cooperation opportunities between the ports and ship operators, which can lead to further development of the tourism sector.
Traditionally, the Baltic Ports Conference will be accompanied by the General Assembly of the BPO members, during which summaries, as well as discussions on up to date BPO business and future plans, take place.
„I would like to bid all participants of the BPC 2019 a warm welcome to the Ports of Stockholm and our hometown Stockholm, northern Europe’s fastest growing metropolitan area. We are a key player in a dynamic region, where we meet the demands of the future with the words openness, trust, and development. Welcome!“
Thomas Andersson, Managing Director at Ports of Stockholm
