IAPH World Ports Conference 2020 cancelled
The International Association of Ports and Harbors (IAPH) regrets to announce the cancellation of the IAPH 2020 World Ports Conference, which was due to be held between 17-19 March in Antwerp, Belgium.
The difficult decision to cancel follows extensive consultation with organizer IHS Markit and Host Sponsor Port of Antwerp. Given the spread of COVID-19 it has been necessary to cancel in the interests of the health & safety of speakers, sponsors and attendees. In addition, the recent increase in the number of speakers and participants impacted by immediate travel restrictions by their organizations influenced this decision.
In recognition of the work that has gone into preparations for the event, other sponsors, speakers, colleagues and participants were also approached to share their views and opinions prior to the decision being made.
We shall announce if it is feasible to postpone the event to another date in 2020 as soon as possible and make arrangements for re-arranging or refunding registrations and sponsorships.
