Another exceptional venue for the GreenPort Congress dinner - Pompstation, Zeeburgerdijk 52, 1094 AE Amsterdam saw a packed dining room with delegates from all corners of the globe rubbing shoulders and establishing new friendships and professional contacts.

The GreenPort Congress is the ideal congress to network, share best practice and discover new ways of working.

After another very uplifting welcome from Michiel de Brauw, Financial Director of Port of Amsterdam, delegates had the opportunity to hear about one of the next GreenPort venues in May 2018 from Earl Lewis, Deputy Secretary Policy and Planning, Maryland Department of Transport.

The evening concluded with the EcoPorts Awards, this year celebrating 20 years of activity and service of EcoPorts.
