The IAPH 2022 World Ports Conference in Vancouver resoundingly succeeded in identifying how ports should close the gaps in global port infrastructure. Never before have ports received so much attention from policymakers and businesses as the critical nodes connecting maritime with land-based intermodal supply chains. The 2023 World Ports Conference in Abu Dhabi will explore in depth and materialise ports’ commitments to digitalise, decarbonise, invest and co-create with their business partners to solidify and expand their roles as supply chain community builders. Featuring global leadership personalities from ports, governments, IMO, UNCTAD, World Bank, global carriers, terminal operators and logistics sectors, #IAPH2023 World Ports Conference between 31 October and 2 November in Abu Dhabi, will bring East and West together in an unmissable opportunity to connect and learn from each other.
