16th WORLD CONFERENCE CITIES AND PORTS

Quebec City, CANADA June 11-14, 2018

Post Conference Progamme

On 14 and 15 June, after the 16th World Conference, AIVP invites you to discover the port cities of Trois-Rivières and Montreal. Working sessions will be organised, along with tours of each of the sites, to look at the issues of City Port co-existence and the societal integration of ports. It will be a fine opportunity to learn about the maritime and port potential of the Saint Lawrence Valley.
The Port of Trois-Rivières, which has been a member of AIVP’s network since 2016, and the Port of Montreal, which joined in 1993, will be AIVP’s partners in the organisation of this post-conference schedule.
