Upwards of 3,700 delegates from the likes of Caterpillar, Vestas, Shell, Solvay, Sumitomo, Thyssenkrupp, Desmet Ballestra, Siemens, Storaenso, ArcelorMittal, and many more, will visit AntwerpXL this November to connect, learn and do business.
The industry’s best and brightest will share their ideas and insights during the three-day Main Deck conference, and the much-celebrated XL 40 Under 40 will return to champion the next generation of industry leaders.
C.Steinweg, Conti-Lines, MSC, Spliethoff, Fednav, BBC Chartering, Konecranes, Varamar, and Zuidnatie are just a few of the industry stalwarts making up this year’s exciting exhibition. On top of that, visitors will have the chance to enjoy an exclusive tour of the Port of Antwerp-Bruges, a recruitment day, a champagne reception, an after-party, project cargo forwarding training sessions, and so much more.
“Antwerp has one of the busiest maritime ports in the world, which handled over 12 million tonnes of breakbulk last year,” Margaret Dunn, Portfolio Director at AntwerpXL, said. “The Port of Antwerp-Bruges hosts 1,400 companies and has over 15 terminals dedicated to breakbulk. That, on top of its strategic location at the crossroads of major European transport corridors, makes Antwerp the home of breakbulk.
“AntwerpXL is much the same, the highlight of the diary for everyone in the industry, and we’re so excited to be returning in 2023, bigger and better than ever before.
“Building on the success of last year, AntwerpXL 2023 will have more exhibitors, more knowledge sharing, and more opportunities to network and do business. We look forward to seeing you all in November!”
