Coastlink 2020 will be hosted in the Port of Antwerp - Europe’s second largest seaport – on Wednesday 13th and Thursday 14th May 2020. The event will be held at The Port House – an award winning and dynamic venue, reflecting the innovative nature and sustainable values set out by the port.

The focus of the 2020 Conference is Building Connectivity between Short Sea Shipping and Intermodal Networks. Coastlink delegates will get to experience this first-hand when attending the Technical Visit on Day 2 of the Conference.

As a highlight of the delegate package, the Port of Antwerp offers a look at one of their dedicated shortsea terminals and a major container deepsea terminal. Delegates will discover how shortsea optimally connects to inland shipping, and rail transport to inland destinations, with an opportunity to view these intermodal facilities at the terminal. From the panoramic roof terrace of the container terminal attendees will learn about efficient container transport management in one of Europe's largest container ports.

Coastlink will deliver 1.5 days of Conference Sessions which will include informative presentations and panel discussions designed to encourage open discussion and audience participation.
