The 2nd East Africa Port Expansion Conference is set to take place from 21-23 March 2018 in Mombasa, Kenya, reports the event organizer IQPC.
East African ports are undergoing massive expansion in order to meet growing global trade demands. New projects include port infrastructure development, dredging operations, rail link construction and upgrade of terminal operating systems.
However, developing world-class services and facilities in African ports involves a number of challenges such as rapid increase in container traffic, long container dwell time, low performance of the inland modes of transport, decrease in cargo volume and more.
With this is mind, IQPC will gather senior port representatives, consultants and contractors, as well as the best suppliers across the industry, at the 2nd East Africa Port Expansion Conference in order to share their knowledge and drive better business in the region.
According to the organizer, the event will explore sea port development projects in the region – including latest port projects and expansions in Kenya, Tanzania, Mozambique, etc – and emphasize opportunities that market opens to contractors and sub-contractors.
