The Netherlands is known worldwide for its maritime expertise, advanced technology and innovative shipyards. Europort 2011 (8 till 11 November) is the place where this expertise, technology and innovation comes together. Innovative developments in ‘Advanced Technology’ in the various Dutch maritime sub-sectors will be presented in six Advanced Technology Conferences (ATC’s).

These conferences are freely accessible and will be organised by HME in cooperation with Ahoy and with the support of the main sponsor Alewijnse Marine Systems and sub sponsors; PPG Industries, and Maritime by Holland.
