April 3 - With just less than a month to go before the start of the Breakbulk Europe event in Antwerp, Bremenports has announced that the city of Bremen will be hosting the event in 2018.

The Breakbulk Europe event has been running for over ten years, always in the city of Antwerp, but is having to move as the city exhibition centre is being redeveloped.

Organised by the UK company Breakbulk Events & Media, a member of the ITE Group, the event will be held in Bremen form May 29 to 31, next year.

Bremen says it beat off strong competition from other cities in and outside Germany, keen to attract an event that is a real crowd-puller. Last year's event in Antwerp attracted more than 7,600 attendees and around 350 exhibitors.
