South Baltic invites to the Transport Week in Sopot

This year's Transport Week takes place from 7-9 March in the Polish seaside resort of Sopot. The event will gather stakeholders from the sectors shipping, ports&terminals as well as logistics under the recurring theme of sustainability.

On the 9th March, the South Baltic Programme, together with representatives of the European Investment Bank and Horizon 2020,  will organise a workshop on sustainable transport. We are pleased to inform that all public officials from South Baltic regions will be exempted from the participation fee and will be able to gain free access to industry trends debated in different conference modules. The Transport Week has been a pivotal platform for the Baltic transport industry over the last few years and the open access for public officials is unprecedented.

Public stakeholders from the South Baltic regions are invited to register with the password “free South Baltic”, which can be inserted in the comments field of the registration from. We, furthermore, invite to a mingling event at the Sky Club at Olivia Business Centre on the evening before and to a site visit to the port of Gdansk and its the container terminal. The guests will be taken with a bus and brought back to Sopot after the visit. The site visit has limited capacities, therefore, it would be advisable to register as soon as possible.

The registration deadline is 2nd March.
