Themes Europort 2017
Big data
Big Data is, without doubt, a game changer. Smart ships, offering scope for enhanced analysis of captured data, will provide insights that will minimise costs and optimise vessel performance. Europort will provide a showcase for new generation IT and system integration tools, ultra-sensitive monitoring, condition-based maintenance, fleet performance management and the other types of data analysis needed to help owners and operators achieve better cost efficiency and lower the overall total cost of ownership.

The new environmental age
The development of environment-friendly technology is often driven by international regulations. However, market leaders turn the quest for sustainability into a strategic competitive advantage, rather than a necessary evil. Europort will present a range of new green technology solutions, from ultra-efficient propeller designs and ballast water technology, to high tech coatings and fuel-efficient solar cell systems. The underlying message will be clear. Clean and efficient shipping technology is central to a profitable and sustainable business model.

The human factor
In shipping, success and competitiveness rely on having a highly skilled workforce that is enabled to innovate and operate in increasingly tough market conditions, charting a path to new business. Europort will lead a timely discussion on the importance of human capital, stressing the need to engage with young talent and invest in staff expertise to strengthen operational skills and boost existing productivity levels, as well as prepare to meet demands in the future.

An exciting and innovative conference programme will take place in conjunction with the exhibition, complementing its aims and objectives in enhancing vessel performance. These sessions will allow attendees to hear first-hand about new technologies, inspiring ideas and creative solutions aimed at giving early adopters a competitive advantage. The following features are already confirmed at this moment:

CEDA Dredging Days
Europort has long been a traditional meeting place for the dredging business, which has a promising outlook. Again, the Central Dredging Association (CEDA) will hold its flagship event, the CEDA Dredging Days, alongside Europort. The event, which will take place November 9-10, has achieved a deserved reputation as a high quality forum, enabling industry experts and researchers to discuss dredging challenges, solutions and experiences. The central theme for 2017 will be 'Dredging for sustainable infrastructure development’. Click for more information.
RINA Conference
A special conference on Alternative Ship Power & Propulsion Systems will be held on November 8. Organised by the Royal Institution of Naval Architects (RINA), this will examine the current use of alternative fuels and energy sources within the shipping industry and how to embrace the challenge of designing cleaner, lower carbon emission vessels. Papers presented will investigate alternatives to traditional energy sources, including wind power, LNG, biofuels, pure and hybrid electric propulsion, solar power, batteries and fuel cells.

Europort Masterclasses
A joint initiative of Rotterdam Ahoy and Netherlands Maritime Technology, the hugely successful Europort Masterclass programme returns in 2017. Every day, a series of inspiring sessions will cover a different industry topic related to the core themes of Europort 2017. Leading professionals and experts in their fields will share knowledge and experiences, giving a unique insight into latest technologies and likely future developments.
MariMatch 2017
MariMatch 2017, organized by the Enterprise Europe Network is an international "matchmaking" event for companies and institutions in the maritime industry who are looking for new business and/or research partners. The event offers the opportunity to gain new international contacts for future technology partnerships. The focus is on innovative technology.
