Europort - November 7-10 2023, Rotterdam Ahoy-ROTTERDAM, MARITIME CAPITAL OF EUROPE




Rotterdam has been announced as the European frontrunner in the 2022 edition of the 'Leading Maritime Cities of the World’ report just launched by DNV and Menon Economics. It’s a well-deserved recognition, and a reason for the port city and surrounding business regions to celebrate. 


Rotterdam has always exerted a magnetic attraction on pioneers and market leaders. The 'solution-based’ approach ensures that innovations are translated into production and thus become inspiring examples for the rest of the world. Its close proximity to the North Sea and three major rivers has led to the development of a strong maritime base in and around the city. The Rotterdam of today is an energy innovation and transition centre with tremendous ambition.

The place to be

Rotterdam is the home port of one of the most complete and competitive maritime clusters in the world. The place-to-be for freight forwarders, ship owners, traders, investors and maritime businesses that want to grow, innovate and above all lead the way in digitization and the energy transition


The North Sea Area belongs to the world’s leading maritime & offshore hotspots. Within a range of 200 kilometres, Europe’s largest ports, offshore and dredging contractors, super yacht builders and shipyards are active. They work closely together with high level research centres, equipment suppliers and numerous ship owners. The Dutch play a vital role in this system and are globally renowned for their "can-do” mentality.


Therefore Europort is proud to be supported by Rotterdam Maritime Capital.
