Boat tour of the Port of Rotterdam

Immediately following the formal educational programme on Friday, delegates will be transported to a facility visit in and around Rotterdam (pre-registration is required).

Discover a buzzy Port of Rotterdam and its various operating industries aboard the Nieuwe Maze boat. As the Port is recreating and modernizing itself, the visit will highlight former transshipment sites turned into a new hub bolstering pioneering and artisan production companies, creative entrepreneurs and companies in the circular production industry.
