Welcome to the registation page for the ESPO Conference 2018. If you have an invitation code, then click here to proceed.

As usual, the ESPO Conference is gathering an impressive line-up of high-level experts and inspiring speakers, who will set the scene for lively debates with different port authorities and EU policy makers. The ESPO conference 2018 is taking place in Europe’s new capital of cool, the city that “makes it happen”, Rotterdam. You can be sure that the Port of Rotterdam is going to do everything possible to live to its reputation as Europe’s biggest port. ESPO will be welcoming its guests in the recently renovated Onderzeebootloods, an impressive hall where submarines slipped off the ramp in earlier days. An event you should not miss!
