More details about the conference - this year’s event, its history, and further information.

The Coastlink Conference, organised by Mercator Media, is held in leading maritime cities across both the UK and Europe.

Within the last several years the conference has taken place in Southampton (2019), Liverpool (2023) and Antwerp (2022).

In 2024 Coastlink will take place in Amsterdam from 24-25 April and is set to cover a number of leading sector topics including the implementation of Green corridors, supply chain logistics and the energy transition.

As the fourth largest port in Northwest Europe, the Port of Amsterdam is a leading player in the international world of transport and logistics and will bring a plethora of knowledge to the 2024 conference.

Coastlink is a neutral pan-European network dedicated to the promotion of short sea and feeder shipping, and, the intermodal transport networks that support the sector. The conference promotes debate on the challenges and opportunities affecting the industry, whilst enabling conference delegates and participants to establish and build on relationships through the networking opportunities on offer.

It is a place for industry professionals to meet and discuss future innovation, economic and environmental considerations – and develop partnerships that will help build a sustainable future.
