European Shortsea Convention back to Ireland

Date: 12/04/2012

The Irish Maritime Development Office (IMDO) and Coastlink will jointly host Shortsea 12, the European Shortsea Convention, on 24 May 2012 at the Mansion House in Dublin, Ireland. 
Dublin Port Company will be the primary sponsor of the convention, which will bring together representatives of Europe’s leading shortsea operators (bulk and unitised), shippers and buyers of transport services, port and maritime terminal operators, logistics and supply chain companies to network, discuss and debate current industry issues.

“Ireland is almost unique amongst European Union members given our dependence on shortsea shipping networks to support our trading economy,” said IMDO director Glenn Murphy. “Changes in this sector can have a real impact on our global economic competitiveness and it is important that we keep up to date with developments in the market. Bringing the leading executives from across the industry to Ireland is a great way to do this.” 

Coastlink Chairman David Cheslin added, “We are delighted to be returning to Dublin again with our members following our last excellent conference there in 2007. The shortsea and ports sector has seen many significant changes since the last conference and it will be a really interesting opportunity for the sector to share their views on the further evolution of the business.”
