The host port Antwerp-Bruges is the global leading port for import and export of new vehicles through its Zeebrugge operation. Zebrugge port also co-ordinates nearly 400,000 cruise passengers from 150 ships to Bruges each year. The port of Antwerp is the second biggest shipping port in Europe annually handling more than 240 million tons of freight.

Port of Antwerp-Bruges is striving towards a leading position as an import hub for green hydrogen and will play an active and pioneering role in the hydrogen economy in addition to exploring methods of applying CCUS (Carbon Capture, Utilisation & Storage). A very fitting host port for the 17th Greenport Congress and Cruise.

Taking place on the 18-20 October 2022 the event will focus on Green Solutions for Sustainable Ports by 2030 and how ports and shipping can work together to achieve net zero targets.

Hosted in the newly built Bruges Meeting & Convention Centre (BMCC), a sustainable venue in the heart of Bruges. From the green roof on the building that buffers rainwater, purifies the air and regulates the indoor temperature, to the recyclable materials and local suppliers and products used in build of the centre, this venue couldn’t be more apt for the conference.
