A two days Conference Programme will feature 30 world-class conference speakers addressing topical issues and challenges on global transportation and logistics attended by a gathering of 400 senior government officials, industry principals, academics, senior executive harbour masters, harbour engineers, port engineers, maintenance supervisors and procurement decision makers together with the region’s leading shippers, cargo owners, importers / exporters, shipping lines, freight forwarders, logistics companies, ports, terminal operating companies, railway operators, port equipment and services suppliers from countries throughout Africa.
This year’s Conference will be broken out across two days and presented alongside the International WorkBoat Show. The WorkBoat Annual Conference will focus on five sectors: “Maintenance & Repair”, “Tugs & Coastal Towing” “Shipyards”, “Inland Waterways & Passenger Vessel” and “Offshore”. Each program is custom designed to provide high level education and networking opportunities in a comprehensive format. The cornerstone of the program will be intensive half-day sessions that will allow the participants to dive deeper into the challenges and opportunities facing commercial mariners today. Led by industry experts, the program will encourage critical thinking as attendees work through issues, ask questions, and receive actionable information that they can immediately put to work. *Once again this year, Maintenance & Repair Day will take place on the first day of the show and will include a full day program geared toward maintenance and repair professionals.
