GreenPort Congress 2018

11/16/2017 - 11/18/2017

May 16-18, 2018

Location: Baltimore Convention Center, 1 West Pratt Street, Baltimore, MD 21201

The GreenPort Congress is an international sustainability-themed port conference held every year (usually in Europe). In 2018, it will be in North America for the first time. It is hosted by Port of Baltimore, Maryland Department of Transportation, and Maryland Department of the Environment. The conference provides a forum to create partnerships working towards making our ports greener and smarter, allowing a co-ordinated approach of the port-marine related industry and business. GreenPort Congress targets new innovations in equipment with leading-edge technology that improves port efficiency and productivity, exploring latest practices and ensuring port users keep up-to-pace with current and forthcoming legislation.

Baltimore Sister Cities, Maryland Sister States, and other members of Sister City International network are providing their support to Maryland Port Administration to attract international speakers and attendees to this conference, and several sister port networks will have a presence at the conference.

The program will be posted in December 2017. The “early bird” discount on registration ends in mid-February 2018.
