TBA speaks at UNESCO-IHE International Port Seminar

March 2014
Press release

TBA has announced that it will be taking part in the International Port Seminar at UNESCO-IHE in Delft next month.

In recent years the Port Seminar has shifted its focus from general organisational and management aspects within ports to port planning and engineering.

With simulation becoming a critical part of this, TBA will be taking part in the program by showcasing the latest trends.

The theoretical part of the seminar will be given at UNESCO-IHE by lecturers recruited from port authorities, terminal operators, universities, knowledge institutions and international consultants. They will transfer their broad ‘state-of-the-art’ knowledge to the participants by means of lectures, discussions, exercises and role play (SIM Port*).

Lecture periods will be alternated with a number of excursions to ports located on the European North-West coast, which is home to the largest concentration of ports varying in size, type, terminal use and management models in the world.

Visits to the ports of Rotterdam, Amsterdam and seaports in Belgium and France are included as part of this year’s programme.

Sharing experiences is an inherent part of the seminar. The seminar offers a platform where participants can discuss their specific experiences and problems whilst at the same time developing mutual social and business contacts.

On the last day of the programme participants will also be given the opportunity to share their experiences about specific topics related to their respective ports as well as other key issues.
