PPG conference attracts members from 54 countries

April 13 - Project cargo specialists from 54 countries will gather in Antwerp from June 30 to July 3 for the third annual conference of the Project Professionals Group.

PPG general manager Kevin Stephens said 111 registrations had been confirmed for the conference including members, sponsors and special guests.

He said a number of new members would be attending their first conference following appointments during the year, including those in the new Project Support Members category.

The PPG conference is the single most important membership activity for the year and an opportunity to mix, network and learn more about new business opportunities and industry trends," Mr Stephens said.

"The conference also provides facilities and a scheduler to arrange face-to-face meetings that are a very cost effective way to co-ordinate business activities from loading to discharge and transportation to the final destination that may involve three or more PPG members."

Conference sponsors include the Port of Antwerp, Rickmers-Linie GmbH; Beluga Chartering GmbH; The Port of Corpus Christi Authority; Coli Shipping & Transport N.V (Belgium); Sea-Concert (Thailand); TransProject LLC (USA); Sahil Freight Express (India); Polytra N.V. (Belgium); and Quebec Stevedoring.

The Antwerp Hilton in the Groenplaats, in the heart of the old city, is the conference venue.
