I’m Speaking At The 2018 World Ports Conference In Baku

I’ll be in Baku in May … talking.

RHODES, Greece- I just confirmed my participation as a speaker at the 2018 World Ports Conference in Baku that’s happening from May 8th to 11th.

While it would probably be a little excessive for anybody here to make a special trip to Azerbaijan just to watch me give a talk, if you happen to be around there or if you are already planning on going to the event feel free to come over and say hello.

What this conference is all about:

The main theme for the IAPH Baku 2018 World Ports Conference is “Ports of Future: Building Hubs, Accelerating Connectivity.” Four-day conference will focus on the important and interesting topics like emerging transport corridors in the region and around the world, contribution of the free trade zones to the domestic economy and the economy of the neighboring countries, the concept of “SmartPorts”, “Green Ports” as well as marine tourism. The conference agenda also includes technical visit to the new Port of Baku in Alat. The participant will get a chance to see Alat Free Trade Zone which is a main part of Azerbaijan’s grand hub vision.
