In a series of events, delegates at this year’s GreenPort Conference will have many opportunities to share knowledge and experiences, and network with attendees from ports and terminals around the world.

Attendees at both GreenPort Cruise and the GreenPort Congress are invited to attend the Welcome Reception, which will be hosted by Venice Port Authority on the evening of 11 October 2016. The Reception will be held on the terrace of the Hotel Bauer which features lovely views of Venice's Grand Canal and the famous Chiesa di Santa Maria della salute.

The 2016 GreenPort Congress Networking Dinner will be hosted by Venice Port Authority at the Hotel Monaco & Grand Canal on 12 October 2016. The evening will begin with a private tour of the Doge’s Palace, St Mark’s Square, organised by Stormwater Italia. Delegates will then be able to take a short stroll to the Hotel Monaco & Grand Canal for the main event hosted by Venice Port Authority.

The Networking Dinner provides delegates with the opportunity to continue networking in a relaxed environment and to make acquaintances, old and new. Dress code: smart casual.

Following the two day GreenPort Congress, on 14 October 2016, delegates will be given a full tour of the Port of Venice after which they will be free to explore the delights of Venice.
