2 September, 2016 - 4 September, 2016
Rotterdam, the Netherlands

Each year, during the first weekend of September, the city of Rotterdam celebrates its port during the World Port Days. This festival is all about strengthening the bond between the port, the town and its natural hinterland. Over the weekend everyone is free to ‘take a look behind the scenes’ at a host of companies in the port area. A unique opportunity, in other words, to check out areas in the port that you normally wouldn’t be able to access.

The 39th edition of the World Port Days will be held on 2, 3 and 4 September 2016. The theme of this year is The Smartest Port.
