The IHMA Congress remains the key forum for IHMA members and the global ports sector to collaborate, network, share information, and provide updates on the latest industry technology and solutions.
In October 2020 this forum goes virtual, providing a unique opportunity for stakeholders, innovators and suppliers to the international maritime industry to connect, build relationships and do business with the principal decision-makers for global port and marine operations.
In addition to the planned conference program being delivered in October, the platform and IHMA virtual community will remain accessible for 12 months, providing extended brand exposure, increased networking options and additional thought-leadership opportunities via a post-Congress Session Series (program TBC).
