Executive course - Maart 2020

Dear Madam
Dear Sir

It is with regret that we have learned that IAPH has cancelled their upcoming conference in Antwerp from March 17th till March 19th (read the communication here). Given its close link with the APEC executive course, we have decided to follow this action and to cancel our event as well.

We will be in touch with IAPH regarding the possibility of postponement of the conference to a later date in 2020. If so, we will take the opportunity to organise the executive learning day in a similar setting. 

At this moment we want to thank you for your understanding and are hoping for your enthusiasm to attend the event at a later moment.

Kind regards

Kristof Waterschoot
Managing Director – APEC

EXECUTIVE COURSE: Ports on the road to achievement of the UN SDG’S

Antwerpen, 16 Maart 2020


This one-day programme is closely related to the goal of the World Port Sustainability Program that aims to demonstrate leadership of ports in contributing to the Sustainable Development Goals of the United Nations.
The programme offers a practical approach on how to get started with the UN SDG’s in a port environment, how to create focus in the different possibilities of the UN SDG’s and how to integrate this in your port strategy in a hands-on manner.
You will get a unique insight into the subject through case studies of ports in full development, as well as an on-site presentation of world leading examples in and around the Port of Antwerp.

The interactive exchange of knowledge on the development of a UN SDG Roadmap in a port environment will give you the ideal introduction to the IAPH World Ports Conference which will be held in Antwerp from the 17th till 19th of March 2020 (www.worldportsconference.com).
This course is designed for executives, leaders and decision makers in the port community and will offer an exclusive platform to discuss and share experiences in sustainable port development.
